The dining room is like out of the 20's in decor, sitting proudly on the cliff overlooking the Bay, amazing views. With the piano playing in the background, you could quite simply be eating in the 20's! Menu was fine, food well cooked, service excellent, would highly recommend

Dinner: most staff were helpful, waiters/tresses rushing around. Had to wait at stand/podium for sometime at each visit - maître d' never there to meet and greet. Restaurant manager rude and ignorant. Food quite good - but not for the price. Lovely views. However, the whole restaurant (and hotel) is really very badly maintained it all needs a complete makeover.... More

Amazing food. We had a three course evening meal, expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. No complaints

I stayed at the Imperial hotel and had dinner at the Regatta Restaurant. The food was really nice and a good variety to choose from. The only downside was the desert menu. Previously the menu changed every day but now it's the same menu for the week and I ended up repeating some deserts but the delice cake was amazing.... More

Tasty food elegantly presented with really good service. Restaurant large and airy with great views. Probably the best food I have had in a large hotel.

Dinner was good value as part of our accommodation deal but we paid supplements on two of our starters as we deviated from the table d'hote menu. We ate at 7.45pm. We would have liked to have eaten a little earlier but the restaurant blocks off a whole section of time slots to accommodate coach parties so you are left... More

Really nice 3 course evening meal for 4 with 3 extra portions of double cooked chips cost £108.95 no drinks, Yes quite expensive but the surroundings and view are superb and the food was very good. All 4 of us left the table having enjoyed the ambience, food, service and live piano.
