To be honest, it was a little bit uncomfortable because we were the only guests in the whole restaurant and it looked like closed or out of service at first. The food’s good but not the best, the grilled chicken was good, the rib eye steak was average, the cheesecake was good but no excellent and the birthday detail cake was Amazing tbh. That’s the point I’d underline for this place, the service.
We enjoyed every bit. The steak was very tasty, tender and perfectly done. The burgers are huge and juicy. The penne alferado was creamy with fresh mushrooms and lamb shank was so soft and dioecious. The staff are so friendly, thanks so Sajil was incredibly helpful and friendly. He offered the baby cookie and all of us extra ice cream. Thanks to the amazing chef who cooked with love and came to greet us and check if all were well.
I visited with my wife and 13yr old son.
The restaurant is basically the hotels main international restaurant. Basic design and decor.
We were Met by Sujil who was very polite and took our order.
He provided a very good level of service.
My wife ordered the fish n chips.
My son a pizza with french fried and myself the steak with french fries.
The fish used was dory which doesn’t work to well as a battered and fried fish. It’s too thin. Tasted ok though.
The steak though cooked to medium as requested was a tough piece of meat that had a lot of gristle and I couldn’t finish it
Also note the hotel is dry.
It doesn’t serve alcohol
