I booked the restaurant the week of our arrival and at the booked time, we went down and were seated straightaway. The food didn't take long to come and it was delicious. The portions was big, we were stuffed!

The food was gorgeous and service excellent, couldn't tip when paying by card which was a shame as our waitress deserved it.

Had dinner here with the family and the food was very tasty and couldn't fault it but it was freezing inside and we sat eating with our coats on! We did ask the waiter and he apologised as they had a problem with the heating. If it wasn't for this I'd give it a 5 star

Lovely food, terrific service and a more varied menu for children than the usual. Drinks quite pricey, but an enjoyable family dining experience

Spending my sons 9th birthday at Chesington Zoo and staying in the Zafari hotel. Just had one of the craziest and comical nights ever. So a local powercut trips the power to the entire hotel and restaurant whilst we are eating starters. This stayed off for 2 hours. The backup power is miniscule and mostly not working especially in the... More
