Had a lovely dinner and a family lunch. Service excellent and plenty of staff. Food was delicious ordered Chateaubriand for dinner. Beautifully cooked and served. Family lunch was equally delicious and service attentive given that there were 4 children at the table. Ordered a birthday cake and that too was delicious.

Dinner here is a must! The service is impeccable and the food is delicious! Outstanding food, especially the steaks. The menu has a variety of options for all, meat lovers and vegetarian. Even gluten free isn't too difficult. As a guest of the hotel, we also had their breakfast buffet. It is done very well, which is to be expected... More

The initial dishes were divine. They had a small soup which was delicious. They had multiple dishes that were done quite... More

It is hard to think on historical individuality as present and in what ways. It really does impinge on the excellence of the ambience, cuisine and eating experience at this --- not inexpensive --- but worth it classical environment. The staff, the ambience, the aesthetics of the history coupled with the variety and taste make it so unique that it... More

We four had the most delicious lunch here. The setting is absolutely beautiful. We were looked after so well by our wonderful waiter, Pavel who was so kind and helpful and has the perfect manner. The food was superb. This was such a memorable lunch to celebrate three birthdays and a family get-together. Just perfect!
