We had a lovely 3 course dinner here but it was a little different. ALL the mains were included in the 3 or 2 mains and a dessert (which is what we had), mains were about 2/3rds the size of a good meal. What we had was YUMMY !!!! Had breakfast the following day as well.

We went for dinner with my mother Friday night and we were delighted with the attention we received. My mother doesn't speak English but our waitress, i think her name was Kaisa, made the effort to speak to her in a basic Spanish, which was a lovely detail from her and made my mother feel comfortable and she enjoyed her...

The Chameleon has recently added high tea offerings to it's patrons. We attended as a family belated Mother's Day afternoon tea. We were seated in the comfortable chairs of the lounge area and the tea and food that followed was beautiful. All made on site, the pastries and sweets were stunning and looked too good to touch. The nice thing... More

We'd had dinner at a nice (trendy) restaurant close by the Chameleon last night but we'd had enough there and were looking for some where for dessert before heading home. We had such a lovely experience at the Chameleon that I wish we'd gone there for our whole meal. The desserts were amazing, the service was excellent (warm and friendly... More

While staying at the Intercontinental, I had breakfast here 3 mornings. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of cereals, fruits, pastries as well as cooked breakfast. Surprisingly, poached eggs were included on the buffet! It was possible to get eggs to order and your server took your coffee order. Try to get a table by the window. I also... More

Really well plated meals, great selection - super delicious and carefully prepared. Staff are very attentive and friendly...which can make an evening. Mains' portions are small, so a side may be good to have if you're there for stomach satisfaction. Menu course pricing may be an unnecessary confusion for food hikers, who really just want a gastronomic experience. Decor gets... More
