We had lunch at the lounge on a cold afternoon. The staff were lovely and service was good. Although the restaurant does not have any vegan options, it was quite easy to remove dairy from one of their vegetarian options to make it vegan. My...companion had the chicken curry and said it was everything he had been wanting after a long weekend of working and eating quick-service food from a delivery app. The atmosphere is great and so comfortable. I loved the green salad - a medley of delicious fresh vegetables dressed in a vinaigrette. It was very easy for me to replace the cheese component with artichokes. For mains I had the gorgeous pita platter with various dips. My favorite was definitely the brinjal dipMore

Had room service from here for lunch on my first day after a long uncomfortable 15 hour flight from nyc comfort food was definitely in order and they did not dissappoint one of the best burgers I've ever had. Next was the awesome breakfast buffet...spread fresh croissants and apricot jam local cheeses and sausages omelets etc you name it all very tasty. Lastly was an elegant dinner with local fish, meats and wines to choose from all delightful. We received a complimentary appetizer,palate cleanser, knowledgeable wine selection and dessert advise and the best of all the bill was surprisingly low for the experience. A definite must go if visiting the sandtown area.More

We came here for dinner and it was absolutely outstanding. Our waiter was incredibly friendly, polite, and helpful, and went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed. The food was excellent too - the potato and leek soup was one of...the best I have ever had. They also provided us with several taster dishes between courses and provided sorbet for cleansing the palate. The steak comes cooked slightly more done than other places, so I would suggest ordering it less cooked than you normally would if you’re fussy. I cannot rate our experience here highly enough and would highly recommend the experience to anyone considering dining here.More
