It is not often that you find a hotel restaurant that that has a unique point of view an delivers on the promise. Excellent Brasserie. Terrific food and service.

Good choice for breakfast without leaving the hotel. There are options for the hot and cold buffet or individual orders of omelettes and pancakes.

I'm interested in the sea scallops and grilled salmon. Would you please give me a description of how they are prepared (with sauce/without sauce) ? Can you substitute a baked potato for couscous? Thank you for the information. See you soon!

The Scallops are generally pan seared, the same with the Salmon.
