The location and service were superb, The restaurant was filled with both hotel guests and locals which is always a great sign. I had the Sea Bass and my partner the rabbit, both of our meals were just amazing.

Outstanding service. Breakfasts and suppers we didn't want to end. Formal setting but no need to dress up. Eat in the courtyard day or night and ask for a heater if you are chilly. Broad range of wines and prices.

Very nice, upscale restaurant. Food, service and ambience were fantastic. The woodwork at the bar was impressive, as was the cute courtyard where we ate...twice. Pricey, but well worth it!
