“So Dissapointed ...”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

What a difference a year makes! Even though my partner & I didn't stay at the South Gap Hotel this time around (we stayed at the nearby Rostrevor complex), we loved the food so much last year at the Tropical Mist, that we decided to pay them a visit again.

On entry, we were informed that there was no chef/cook available for us to have any breakfast or lunch; and the bar staff seemed totally uninterested in serving us any drinks or beverages. They seemed happy to see us leave without paying for anything. No wonder the restaurant was empty when we called in.

So sad, don't waste your valuable holiday time here!

“Nice for South Gap hotel residents”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This bar/restaurant is downstairs in the South Gap hotel, where we were staying. Prices were very reasonable and the food delicious. Staff were all friendly and helpful- definitely eat here if you are staying in the hotel. The only negative is that it does feel like a hotel pool bar, rather than a restaurant you would visit for a night out - lacks atmosphere because of its location within the hotel and we were often the only people eating!

“Would only visit at lunch...”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Decor and entrance is disappointing. Husband had the club sandwich, which looked good. I had a chicken burger. Both meals were okay. Wouldn't go back for dinner. Prices were average for the gap. Happy hour 12-1 so beers were cheaper.

We stayed at The South Gap for 9 nights and so ate quite a few meals there and enjoyed their "Happy Hours" very much
