All reviews mention the beauty of the gardens and this is true. The entrance to the hotel as well as the gardens beside the restaurant are really special. The outdoor patio was very pleasant. However, we did not find the food to be special. My husband was not happy with his lamb and the ravioli which my daughter and I had was a bit chewy and not particularly delicious. My son did enjoy the pastilla however, which he said was well seasoned and very tasty.The orange souffle was fine but not impressive.

Had dinner; was a disappointment. The food was underwhelming and under seasoned. I had the crusted lamb. Bland lamb, crust tasteless. Two persons in our party had the ravioli and found it very ordinary. Another person had the pigeon and enjoyed it.

on the positive side, the ambience was quite nice, physically. There was a bar that abuts the dining area, it was boisterous with a large party of half drunk patrons. the manager tried to manage the situation but was not very successful as the then came to dinner.

Had dinner at Villa Mandarine. This is one of those whimsical places, with an authentic retro vibe. If you like small, vintage places, try the bar. The garden is beautiful, book a table outdoors. The food and service was good. Loved the orange soufflé.

We broke both of our rules at this stop, in part because the location gave us limited options. That said, we enjoyed a number of delightful meals here. Food good, service good, presentation good. Can't think of a less than good thing to say!
