We were pleasantly surprised that a hotel restaurant was so good. The service was excellent - I got extra hummus without even asking. The salads were top rate and the soup my wife had was very good.

Have been here a number of times and it is always the same - great food at reasonable prices - tables well spaced for some degree of privacy - and the staff are incredible - always so pleasant and accommodating. Love their breakfast selection. A great place to go and recommend it highly.

My favorite place to go for a good breakfast. I got the $15 big breakfast and man, It did not disappoint! Everything was quality and cooked to perfection. Shout out to our chef that worked in Spain! You can tell the difference between a regular chef and one that's been in different countries cooking.

This place would get top ratings if the dining room had a better ambiance!
