Quiet place. It was nice to have a normal conversation without having to shout over loud music found too often in other restaurants

Chose here because we didn't want to go far for dinner and this was the hotel restaurant. Dinner was nice, good size serves, friendly waiter and at the time it was nice and quiet (7.30pm). Small dining room, relaxed, easy to have a quiet chat.

Great Restuarant , friendly staff, food was fresh and very tasty, lovely atmosphere , our only gripe is they do not do lunch only breakfast and dinner, we would love to have girlie lunches there but it's not to be.
Good value for money
It's also only a few minutes walk from Southern Cross Station
