Great service! Buffet had enough variety with two types of eggs, bacon and sausage, hot cereal, fruits, breads, croissants, orange, apple, and grapefruit juices and endless supply of coffee.

Enjoyed the beet salad and frites! It is a happening spot, so service was just ok with the amount of staff to customer ratio. Overall would recommend for lunch!

Perhaps we were spoiled as our experience with the Oban restaurant came via the breakfast that was included with our stay at the inn, but the service and the food were exceptional. Interesting buffet, hot items plus fruit, good assortment of breads. Excellent all round.

We were lucky to be around for the Fabulicious menu that offered a fixed price for 3 courses. I have a gluten allergy and was accommodated quite nicely with warm bread and butter to start. Good quality food, lovely ambiance.
