“Great place to stay or eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Very good value food and although the menu is small, the food is authentic and delicious. Seafood is a speciality of the kitchen and the breakfast fruit platter is just scrumptious.

“Lovely & Enjoyable find for New Year's Eve Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Leaving our booking a little late -lunchtime of NYEve..we tried 2 other higher end restaurants & finally found Deco with the help of our tuk driver. Arriving at 7.15pm to a beautiful garden with soft white fairy lighs draped over the well renovated Art Deco building. Candle light & soft lighting highlighting the soft gold paint on doorways & the Teal blue columns, with matching drapes in the large windows & doorways.
Set menu was very reasonable @ $60US per head; classic prawn cocktail, crab/sweetcorn soup(not Chinese style) light & delicate with full crab flavour & fresh steamed sweet corn. Pomegranite Granita to cleanse the palate (little too sweet for me), followed by lightly grilled Fresh Lobster- cooked perfectly & simply. We had spoken to Chef earlier to make sure Lobster would not be overcooked. Dessert of Choc brownie or fruit platter. We did ask for bottle of bubbles to be put on ice in afternoon, but this did not occur & warm bubbles were poured-oops minor mishap, as the Food & Service made up for this. Very attentive & happy Service- a surprise as Service levels were low throughout our visit. Highly recommend & hotel looks good too!

“Beautifully done heritage house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed last June in deco. It was lovely. The staff very helpful and courteous service was fantastic. Very very comfortable. Menu excellent. The chef arranged a lovely vegetarian srilankan meal for us,which was absolutely fantastic. In all it's worth the price to make your holiday memorable.the pool was good too.

“Outstanding food in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We ate here for dinner early in December. We were the only diners initially, which made us a bit nervous, but the gorgeous building, well laid out tables and good looking menu enticed us in.  We needn't have worried - the food was superb and service excellent. The grilled jumbo prawns in particular were delicious (and bring new meaning to 'jumbo').  Prices were good for the quality of the meal.  Hard to fault.
