The breakfast served in this restaurant is absolutely fantastic! There is a very pleasant atmosphere with lovely decor. You are warmly greeted at the door, shown to your table, given a menu and invited to start your meal by helping yourself to a very extensive buffet before choosing your main dish from a wide choice of dishes.

This is a charming restaurant in a pleasant hotel - see separate review. The service was prompt and the staff were very helpful, often anticipating a little extra helping. There was a nice selection of food and drinks. The restaurant is well decorated and screens give some privacy.
