We are staying in the hotel and use the restaurant every night. It is very consistent in terms of food quality but the service lets it down from some of the waiting staff in terms of delay and forgetting items off the order.

I ate here with my boyfriend for his birthday and the food was delicious! We each had three courses and the food was so tasty and beautifully presented. Our waitress was also so so lovely and attentive. I can't fault it!

So sorry that you felt our portion of home-cut, chunky chips was small. If you dine with us again, please don't hesitate to mention that you would prefer an alternative side-dish to our staff.
