“dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2010

I went to this place with huge expectations. Welcome group is known worldwide for its hospitality. The view of the bay and sea and ships was mind blowing. Ambience was awesome .and all this uptil we reached d bar......we were rudely told by the barman that children were not allowed. We requested to be accomodated as our child was too small to be left alone and there was no one else in the bar.but it was refused.Then i asked them to serve drinks at the annexe.We were refused again.
We gave up and went downstairs to have food in the restaurent.it was arnd 1915. The server refused to give the menucard saying that the restaurent opens up at 1930.
Disgusted and too tired to go anywhere else we loitered in d lobby with a crankhy child till 1930. Went down and ate a very mediocre buffet. The menu selection was average .
I was very very dissapointed as the brand name is tarnished and expectations not met at all.Not recomended for families wth small kids

“OK buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2010

The view is great from this restaurant but the food is nothing special. I had a lunch buffet that was average.

“Beautiful ambience killed by average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2009

Beautiful view overlooking the port. Looks especially lovely at night - the sea dotted with yatchs...brings out the island's charm.

If only the food were in sync with the view. The food is very average for a high end place like this. You'd expect much better from Welcome group of hotels. The service is only average - the staff does not seem too keen to serve.

Not worth the money. Go for a stroll by the port instead and eat elsewhere.

It's basic with earnestly old-fashioned colonial cooking. Food is a cross- section of fantastically fresh fish from these Andaman Seas, unpretentious Southern Indian and formal British Officer fare. Gorgeous views of the seas and the eco-friendly, salt-water pool :)
