After seeing the nice pictures of this restaurant , we deliberately made our way there although we are not staying at the Park Royal. True enough, the view is very nice and we love the alfresco dining. However the service leaves much to be desired. It is as though the waiters do not want you to dine there and wishing for you to go off. Also the time taken for the bill to come and to complete the credit card payment took more than 30mins.

The food was such a waste as it tasted terrible. Although the seafood is fresh and they gave big prawns, fish, clams etc in the seafood platter, the cooking method sucks and we left behind a big portion untouched. The waiters are not concerned and just cleared the table as though it is a natural occurrence for such big portion of food to be unfinished! Which would not be surprising either considering the tastes.

I hope the hotel revamps the kitchen and service staff as it is such a waste for the nice environment to be so lousy in other aspects.

Eating by the ocean with the sound of the waves and the sun setting was beautiful. Tables are set on a simple decking out in the open making the most of the warm nights. The service is attentive without being intrusive and the food was very nice. We had dinner there twice and loved the tender lamb cutlets served with fresh vegetables and chips.
