The restaurant is situated just off the the main foyer of The Lord Charles Hotel. It is a small restaurant with a clean, slick decor creating an ambiance of perfection which filters right down the the plate of food placed in front of you. The steak we ordered was done to perfection and the serving portion was adequate - none... More

Food is great and so is the service.The atmosfere driving up to the parking and walking up those stairs to the entrace reminds me of a bygone era where stylish dining was a a common phenomena. Buffet breakfast bitt pricy but if your ambiance is great one wont mind paying a bitt extra

It is not the biggest menu you can imagine, but each of the descriptions make you want to select that particular meal. We order the linefish, the sirloin steak and the duck and were presented with the most appetising dishes. Safe to say not a crumb was wasted. Truly a great experience

Had the duck and it was "ok", bit tasted my friend's sirloin with the dukkah and it was amazing! Curious about the chicken livers... Dessert was delicious. Our waiter was a dear and very helpful and friendly. Was a Thursday night, not very busy. Fairly priced... For Somerset West...

I visited the hotel last year for breakfast and found the quality of the food to be very mediocre. After hearing that the hotel had undergone an upgrade, we decided to try it for breakfast again a year later. The spread was simply worse than previously. There were mouldy grapes and the selection of fruit consisted only of some sliced... More
