We went for Sunday lunch because we love the elegant, quiet setting. We were unfortunately disappointed at many levels. My wife ordered a mojito and after about 15 minutes the waitress told us that they didn't have the ingredients to make a mojito. We asked if they could do a pina colada cocktail and the answer was 'yes'. After another... More

The restaurant is located in African Pride Hotel. I had baby squid as starter and beef porterhouse as main dish. Both were delicious.

We had breakfast here each day of our stay at the hotel. It was a really nice spread. Great teas, savory waffles, all kinds of deliciousness going on. I was happy with our experience eating here.

A great place for a celebration. Feels like luxury in decor and ambiance. The oyster and caviar were an unexpected treat. Beautifully fresh, I had to go back . The fresh salmon too was excellent. I had the eggs Benedict. Hollandaise was delicious and the portion was very filling. We also tried the breakfast 'the works' - make sure you... More

We had a business function here, and it was really average. I had an overcooked thin slice of tuna for a starter - a strange dish - and fish of some sort for mains, served with (a lot of) mashed potatoes, no colour on the plate. The service was also quite poor - I asked for a toothpick, and no-one... More

Eloquent minimalistic display of the Continental Breakfast Buffet consisting of a spread of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits, cheeses, quality cold meats, hot and cold smoked salmon, oysters, fresh pastries, freshly squeezed fruit juices and a mini tiered display of sweet treats including cubed fudge and coconut ice sweets. Love the quirky display of a slab of fresh honeycomb dripping with... More

We took some overseas VIP guests to The March restaurant and we were very sorry we did. The room they put us in was extremely hot and they struggled to get the temperature reduced. The service was very slow. One of the guests had her starter served when everyone else was finished. The table wasn't cleared properly. The main courses... More

The March probably has the best Breakfast Buffet I have ever seen. The presentation of the food is very unique and special. We also had dinner the night before. The menu is extensive and the food beautifully prepared. Great service and a classy place to enjoy a meal.
