I always enjoy dining here. The menu is very carnivore-centric, but with seafood and veg options as well. We weren't particularly starving when we ate there and were thrilled when our server mentioned the possibility of splitting an entree. The appetizers were delicious (the carrot "marrow" was creative and tasty). Our ribeye was cooked perfectly (charred outside, pink inside). We brought wine - the corkage fee was very reasonable and the staff was happy to decant it while we had a drink in the bar.
The Grill Room has consistently great service, which is difficult for a resort that generally relies on seasonal labour. Everyone hit the balance of professionalism and friendliness quite well.

A fabulous spot for a special occasion. Our group sat in the private room at the back of the restaurant which would be an amazing spot for a rehearsal dinner or family gathering. The separating wall is a wine cellar and the other side with large windows look out to greenery (very cool in the winter when the snow is falling!). The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were almost the size of my hand, the tenderloin steak with trio of sauces were cooked to perfection and the dessert made with honey from the rooftop bees was divine. We shared a bunch of "sides" - highly recommend the mushrooms, risotto and tomato bocconcini mac and cheese (unreal!). The service was amazing (Elisa) and we always had our wine and waters topped up. Treat yourself - you won't be disappointed!

Probably one of the more expensive meals of the holiday, but it was my favourite. The restaurant has a great look to it. The staff are extremely friendly and talk to you on a more personal level. Some of the dishes they prepare right next to your table. There are some great cuts of steak avalible and some you can choose the size and weight yourself. Would recommend giving this place a try
