We had a table of 13 and no one was happy with their meals either it being cold, not right (the squid entree coming out appearing to be frozen calamari rings), expensive and poorly put together. I personally had the Greek salad and found it very disappointing and not nice to eat. Our stay at Crown Plaza on the other hand was lovely and we really enjoyed our accomodation and deals with reception staff. Sorry again but hopefully this feedback helps. Regards, Hannah

We were a party of 10, placed order at 12:15 and food wasn't ready until 1:00pm. I realise there were 10 covers, but, what would have been the wait if order placed at busy time on a Sunday - say 12:45? Some outdoor seating but pool as well so care required. Large games room for children but can't be seen from dining area so defeats the purpose in my opinion so our 4 had to stay with us all the way through the meal. Good for a casual meal or beer after golf although not cheap.
