“Yes, it's in a hotel - no it's not a hotel restaurant.”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Very different than you might expect from the setting, in the Wyvern Hotel - a very nice hotel, by the way. Lulu Restaurant is very unique serving dishes that are real special and they taste great too! Kind of a tapas type restaurant with lots of little plates with unusual and delicious foods. For a more casual setting, go to the roof-top pool-side site up on top of the hotel. Magnificent views, especially at sunset, and wonderful food. Hard to beat!

“Insanely Good”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

This restaurant was absolutely amazing! The mussels appetizer were spectacular. The pork was awesome and the scallops were yummy! We both joined the clean plate club at this restaurant. The desserts were good too. I was very iffy about the Guava and Feta creme brule but it was awesome! The Drunken Tequila Berry Cheesecake was great too! There was nothing here that either of us didnt like. We even tried to figure out how to get another round of mussels before our return home!!!!

“Heavenly experience”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

One of the finest getaways for good romantic time! The view of rooftop bar is mesmerizing and the food is just beyond paradise! Try Lobster rangoon and you will keep on eating them until you are so full!!! The Gabonese coated scallops Was entirely new experience of life. The chef and server were so professional and courteous!!
Must to do list in whole town.

“Not the Same Lulu....”
Reviewed February 27, 2011

We had been to Lulu serveral times and enjoyed the food, the exceptional service and the beautiful atmosphere. This time was different...they were offering a special $10.95 menu, which I was told by the server would be the special menu throughout the season this year. Now, don't get me wrong, I love a bargain as much as the next person but Lulu just isn't the type of place you go to for a 'bargain' or 'cheap eats'. I could see that the staff was stressed and was unable to give the kind of service one would expect from a restaurant like Lulu, and which I have received from past visits. The atmosphere was chaotic, I overheard guests at the next table complaining about the prices of drinks and wine, asking the server the difference in price between a "well" cocktail and a brand name one and which coupons could be used that evening towards the check. Seemed like I had been transported to another Lulu Restaurant in "Cheapville, USA". Not at all what I was looking forward to that evening. Now onto the food. The Habanero Scallops, my favorite dish at Lulu, was divine, as usual, and my companion's Filet was just as good. Too bad the experience didn't match the quality of the food. I could tell that the server was trying to provide the quality service that Lulu has been known for but it is hard to do that when they are inundated with questions about coupons and price comparisons. Whatever happened to having a nice evening out and letting someone do the cooking and serving. Seems some have forgotten that that is a service which one pays for. I would recommend this restaurant but on a night not offering the $10.95 "special"!! BRING BACK THE OLD LULU!!
