an excellent and a varied menu. a large outdoor garden area and spacious indoor settings - different rooms, some larger some more intimate. lots of trees and pools, place for the children. Even the bathrooms are lovely. The food was good, the service was good.

Beautiful setting but not too many options for people with special dietary requests such as gluten free or vegetarian/vegan. Quite pricey for what they offer

Beautiful setting. Good buffet but the service was terrible and they give you tiny plates. When we went for a refill of food we came back to a table that had been cleared up, including half a cup of coffee, bread and cutlery. I should point out that there were personal items on the table so it was clear we... More

As we came for brunch, we had mainly breakfast food and very little of lunch. The surroundings are very nice- we sat in a quite secluded spot, 8 of us around a table with trees around and above. The various salads, eggs and baked breads and other baked items were delicious, as well as the sweet items we shared at... More

This was our first visit after a couple of bad experiences here a few years back. Sorry we came. Service as poor as ever,complete disorganization in the front. Never again. The Israelis who come, pay heavy price for the privilege of sitting in a good garden, but it will be the taste of 50's style coffee that will remain with... More

The restaurant is charming as always, recently more sitting areas have been added outside. A lot of character. We came for lunch in the middle of the week. Not many people in the restaurant, service was a bit sketchy. Food is OK, nothing special. Salmon was over cooked, salads are banal.

We went for lunch and booked the table a day before, but there was no need as the place wasn't fully occupied. Half of the tables outside were taken and inside the main restaurant only 3 tables were seated. We were promptly seated with the menus but it took the waiter some time to get to us. As a starter...
