Stayed at the Best Western of which this is the restaurant. The choice is good and Maria P was first class. This is a hotel restaurant so you aren't going to get bags of atmosphere but I would east there again.

Usually I refrain from going to hotel restaurants but having slept very little the night before I took what I had thought to be a risk. My compliments to the friendly stuff and broad list of menu items. All of us four enjoyed the food, even sharing some dishes. Bravo and keep going like that!

A good relaxed atmosphere, the goats cheese Wellington was excellent, the vegetarian meal very tasty and nice . Having had a morning meeting in the hotel in which we were very well catered for it made a nice relaxed end to the meeting. Not too busy and yes not empty with many couples lunching an entertaining lunch
