“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

The cream of mushroom soup was ok, but I would have liked to have larger pieces of mushrooms instead of having an almost pureed soup with finely chopped mushrooms. I had the shrimp pasta and really didn't like the sauce. The angel hair pasta was also slightly over cooked. I barely ate any of my entree and was surprised the wait staff didn't even notice as they took it away.

“Quick service and tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I had dinner here, the service was really fast and the food was good. I had the fish and chips and got a very generous portion of crunchy battered cod and a large pile of chips (fries). Very enjoyable .

“Surprisingly great breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

We went for breakfast at Windows on the Bay the day after Christmas, so there were few people out and about at that hour. I expected a standard hotel breakfast buffet, but was pleasantly surprised by the enormous variety of food, from sushi to Belgian waffles, to the familiar bacon and eggs. There was an equally impressive array of fruit, pastries, bread, and yogurt. For 15 dollars per person, this was an exceptionally good buffet. If the buffet is too much for you, or you want something special such as eggs benedict, these can be ordered off the main menu.

I should also acknowledge the attentive and friendly wait staff who tried their best to cater to all of the diners’ needs. In particular, Peter Y was an outstanding server whose enthusiasm was contagious. Overall, this was a pleasantly surprising experience for a hotel breakfast.

“Fantastic Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2011

Best waffles. really! The breakfast buffet is a good deal, fresh and with great choice and variety.
I didn't eat there for lunch dinner, so I'm not sure, but the menu looks promising.
