“Special lunch at Simola”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Today we had a special lunch for a 60th birthday. The setting was beautiful as was the food. The really nice thing about Simola is that the napery and cutlery is always of such a high quality. The set menu lunch with two choices for each course was really good and the service was excellent .
The staff are friendly and efficient. Highly rommended.

“Good place to visit”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We were recommended to visit this restaurant as there was a power outage and our hosts knew that the hotel had a generator. They were not wrong, the food was good, the views excellent and the price was reasonable so, all in all, well worth a visit!
