We ate here during our hotel stay. Staff were v accommodating about our sons allergies and prepared them off menu meals especially for them. The food was delicious but it was nearly an hr wait which was difficult with tired hungry children. My advice is book a table well in advance and if it's not sunny ask for a window... More

Ate here after staying in the hotel. We found the place clean, with friendly staff. The food was very good quality, with a good selection of hot food, cereals, fruit and yoghurt. Would defineatly go back.

Drinks actually quite reasonable £3.55 small glass of house red and actually quite nice and you don't need to pour it on your chips! Had the lamb and the beef skewers both were really lovely! Kids wanted... More

We had both our evening meals in this one Great if you have young children as it is very informal There is plenty of choice and the staff are very helpful Would say it is the better one if you have smaller children as there is plenty to keep them occupied and interested

Stand in long queue to be seated for a dinner that you have to pre book. Maria or Marie runs around looking busy but not actually getting any work done, won't allow any other waitress shoe you to your seat. Shouts at children , as you be shown to your seat you can see that the burgers are already prepared... More

This needs to be reserved but you are better off going somewhere else off site. Greasy smelling food in cafeteria surroundings, only use if desperate

On being disappointed earlier that day with the Aztec buffet diner my husband and I thought that the safari restaurant looked a lot more appealing and from what we could see the food looked fresh and delicious. Upon getting a table we looked at the menu. There was a selection for the children and also the usual colouring paper and... More

The food was amazing and very reasonably priced we were really impressed. We actually commented that we had never seen ribs with so much meat. The day after we went for a buffet breakfast which again we couldn't fault it was really tasty. The staff were always there to help and couldn't do enough for us.
