A extreme disappointment for a Belmond establishment. For a 5* hotel to not even have a correct menu was clearly a bad start. The lack of adequate heating outside and staff who seem more important than the guests is just embarassing. As for the "chocolate...More

Great restaurant, view, food, service and ambiance. World class dining experience. Recommend coming to see sunset on balcony and a table outside if weather is nice. Make reservations in advance as it's in high demand.
