As this is a restaurant based in a hotel, I'm not sure how good value the a la carte menu would be for non residents. However, for us, as guests on an inclusive deal, the food was out of this world.

We ate in this restaurant whilst staying at the hotel on three evenings. Each night had a different menu and each night was superb. We had an excellent different choice each night .

When staying overnight in the hotel, we ate our breakfast in the main restaurant and dinner in the brasserie. It was very good food and service in both occasions.
