The wait staff were rushed and rude. Also the drinks were incredibly over priced. Great view though.

I agree with the other reviewers, the best thing about this place is the view. When we sat down and look out on the water it was the most relaxing moment. I could have stayed there forever. The food was ok but nothing spectacular. You are really just paying for the view so think about that. The service was slow. I don't think they had enough waiters that day.

My husband and I ate lunch at the tea room. We sat outside and the views of the lake are incredible-probably the best on the island. The restaurant's interior was also very nice and historic. However, the food was a huge disappointment. The menu is limited. I got the vegetarian pita sandwhich which came disassembled (3 small slices of mozzarella cheese, a dab of olive spread, a tomato slice) with cold pita bread. My husband got the sloppy joe which included a generic bun with a small serving of canned meat on top. 2 bags of chips came as a side. Did not except this from a Grand Hotel associated restaurant. I would recommend going for a coffee or something small/inexpensive to enjoy the views. Don't waste your money on anything else-too many options on the island!

The Tea Room is owned by the Grand Hotel. It has good food but expect to pay more. However, the view is well worth the price. The service was good and we were served quickly. No refills on my iced tea though.

Very conveniently located In the fort. Average food but well targeted kids menu. Good price relative to other places for food. Superb view. Free refills on kids drinks a bonus (lately we've been getting charged for all drink orders). Worth it of for only the location and ease of access.
