A breakfast of highest quality. From Roti to caviar. Freshly prepared salmon and the best Eggs Benedict. The service from seating arrangements to the waiters were of highest quality. The fruit platters were freshly prepared and the portions were more than generous. Keep up the excellent service. I will definitely be back to indulge the amazing food and hospitality,

I only go here for breakfast meetings. While it is always busy, one can always hear oneself speak. Their buffet is great, but I go for their menu options. I love their kippers. Not everyone gets kippers right and not have them repeat on you. The chefs at Piccolo Mondo certainly do. I can also order kidneys. Nowhere else I... More

I have had the pleasure of never really being disappointed at this venue, be it the restaurant or the lounge. The food is artistically presented and tastefully crafted. The tables are draped in luxurious linen and laid out with fine tableware. You can enjoy a beautiful African sunset depending on the time of day. Their milkshakes at the lounge is... More

Eight of us had lunch here, and it was quite disappointing. Two of us ordered from the halaal menu, and (we did not know that) the halaal food gets ordered from Bukhara restaurant in the mall. This caused a serious delay in the arrival of my main course, which arrived about 15 minutes after the others got their meals. My... More

The breakfast offers hot and cold choices. We enjoyed the croissants, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes and hot tea. This is a must do for Michelangelo Hotel guests. No need to go anywhere else to start your morning.,
