4 of us visited the Cellar Restaurant for a celebratory meal. We were at first the only ones in the place with 4 waters which was a bit creepy but it soon got busy. The staff were friendly and professional and the decor was nice. We started with Leek and potato soup x2 people, Baked goats cheese and one person... More

Beautiful food. Superb staff. Exceptional service - my wife forgot her glasses and mentioned it quietly to me. However the maitre d' picked up of her dilemma and appeared at our table with reading glasses for my wife. We were so impressed.

While dealing with the time zone changes, the Cellar restaurant was a good option when we wanted to have some food/drink then head off to bed.

My wife was at a class reunion so I dined here on my own. The food and service was impeccable and the wine was pretty good too.
