I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here, especially the seafood. We had a business dinner for 8 people before heading to the airport and I would recommend it. Good selection of starters and main courses and reasonable choice of wine. The restaurant is upstairs from the main hotel restaurant at the Serena. In these difficult times from a security perspective being inside the hotel security is an additional plus.

I cannot recall ever having had such a wonderful seafood experience on all my worldly travels. All freshly prepared and superbly presented. Sincere thanks to Executive Chef Roy and his very capable team for making the dinner such a memorable occasion, and to Joyce and Maria (and not forgetting Louis!!) for the great company.

This is a luxury French style restaurant within the best hotel in town, the Serena hotel.

The setting is very nice and very comfortable and the service as in the rest of the hotel (except for the cafe Maghreb) is absolutely perfect.

So why did I put 3 stars only? Because of wine and food! Isn't that the most important than the restaurant?!

And food here is disappointing, not bad and even very well presented but the tastes are not there. I had both lunch and dinner and came to the same conclusion. This restaurant's is advised by a French chef from Provence I happen to know Emile Loubet: I wouldn't say he's the best choice as an adviser or a consultant. First there are many better chefs in France and second if Mr Loubet is certainly a good cook he must not spend very much time in the kitchen here...

As for the wine list, its close from being a bloody shame: mistakes, wrong comments, lousy choices. I don't know who picked wines but certainly no expert!

The setting is so nice and the service so great that it is a true pity that more efforts are not made on the gastronomical side.

Great service than I ever expected! Food was great too. Really awesome service from the waiters. I really enjoyed the fact that I mentioned it was a birthday dinner and they baked a cake for us and presented it with a song by the pianist. It was fun!
