I have been dining & staying here for over 10 years and its always been great. The overnight package with dinner & breakfast is a bargain and saves the taxi home. Menu changes fairly regularly with the exception of a couple of famous deserts.

Shakey Tables is very expensive and therefore you would expect the food to be way above the ordinary. We don't mind paying big dollars but then we must have high expectations. Unfortunately our expectations were not met. I love bouillabouse and have been fortunate to...More
