                    Food and service was great but I was charged extra for food that was included in the price on the Menu, didn’t notice till after I had paid and left.

                    It was enjoyable but a table of extremely noisy people in close proximity made it a little unpleasant and we left early. There are two sections to the restaurant and we were placed near the large group, even though there were several sections available in the quieter area. We didn’t complain as wanted no fuss.

                    The food and atmosphere was amazing. The only reason for four stars instead of five was the service. Maybe we were just unlucky on the night but the bar staff (in particular) clearer didn’t want to be at work, we’re short with people, and they mucked up our drinks order twice. That won’t stop us going again.

                    We love to give the Chef and their staff our best compliment. The 3-courses meal was deliciously designed - fresh quality ingredients & nice platting. Excellent presentation for each dish from the Charcuterie board to the main. The chicken and the beef were cooked to the perfection- moist & tender served so well with the tasty Dutch carrots. The Petit Fours were beautifully decorated & nice as our expectation. We enjoyed our night with good food and good bottle of the sparkling wine.

                    I guess we need more variety of food on the menu. Especially considering people dietary such as halal or vegetarian.

                    On a positive, the waiters were enthusiastic. However they lacked some basic training, e.g plates were put in the middle of the table knives and forks were on wrong side. Food was ok, but more like a ordinary pub meal. Menu was very sparse, however we did find an excellent wine. Overall, there is a bit of work to be done.

                    Where to start? Ok we were seated by the barman come waiter at 6.30pm who then produced 2 short order menus which showed hamburgers,pizza,battered fish and few more options if I wanted a hamburger or pizza for dinner I would have gone to McDonalds or Pizza hut. Then they mentioned that are running a limited menu but no where on the hotel website does it say that as actually it is a totally different menu that is why we we chose that place. Then the waiter said he cannot make cocktails as he doesnt have all the ingredients.I asked what the pizza of the day was which was meatlovers.I said I dont eat pork can I swap it for hawaiin? Again the response was no we dont have the ingredients .Anyway margaritta was the chosen pizza also battered fish ,however do not leave the seeds in the lemon wedges as it is a sign of a lazy chef and when you squeeze the lemon the seeds fly out.Again atleast put on the hotel webiste that the menu showing there is not no where near close as what as is shown on the night.

                    Wait time of over an hour just for my orange juice and the food was almost 1 hour and 15 minutes. Staff seemed to have no idea what they were doing. I would never come back here again. The toast was like eating cardboard.
