Reviewed July 5, 2014

We were both very, very ill and we ate separate things. Takes some doing don't you think? Al a carte menu basic and bland. Didn't try the buffet and wouldn't.

All the food was good... Prepare to add inches to your waist as it's impossible to only eat one pudding

“A terrific place to eat!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

just about everything!! good food and a scrumptious buffet at lunch time and in the evening too,the service is better and quicker! inside the Governor's restaurant rather than outside on the terrace.

“Extraordinary atmosphere, ordinary food”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

Stunning, elegant atmosphere that brings one back to the British Colonial Era. I expect I will stay here in a future trip to just experience the hotel. As for the restaurant, the food was...okay. Nice place to relax in an elegant atmosphere, enjoy and extended dining experience and people watch. and take in the beautiful view of the waves crashing on the shoreline.
