We use Chef Abod for our office and meeting catering. His chicken with rice and hummus lunch is a favourite and now used by many other partners. Food is fresh and portions a huge. Order with confidence.

1. Which hotel? Chef Abod Restaurant is a mile from any hotels. 2. When? It is just about freezing today, snow is forecast for tomorrow, so I'd advise against the beach until maybe next May.
