Peter, Jay and Dominic were excellent for service. The margaritas were great. I ordered the Angus steak. Cooked perfectly.
Very good service, meal and location.

“Disappointing”

Reviewed on 18/07/2020

Poor Service and not accomodating at all. Rude and pushy staff. For an Accor Hotel I expected better quality. Food was cold and also quite delayed. Overall do not recommend.
