Perfect for breakfast meetings, business-friendly and great coffee. If you are staying at the Crown Metropol hotel you will receive a discount voucher and free coffees. Also good for Asian dinner, reasonable prices, tasty food.

This is an amazing breakfast spot, the food is amazing and you need to try the omelette! The service is exceptional throughout the experience, name check, walk to the table, speed of the coffee delivery and the attention to detail by the staff are all 5 star. When I have breakfast I don't like to drink my coffee fast and... More

Beautiful surroundings and atmosphere. Prompt service. Friendly recommendations and plenty of menu choice. We chose vegetarian dishes which were both delicious. Great choice for dinner just next to the Crown Casino complex.

We waited 15 mins to be served and then ordered a coffee and a lemonade. This took another 10-15 mins to arrive. It's a shame as the location is great for Metropol guests, I wouldn't go back.

We had breakfast here and the food is quite average. The restaurant setting seemed to me more of a family set up. Service is ok, staff were friendly.

For a hotel designed to cater for large groups, the fixed menu 2 course dinner was not a hit. The choice of Pork Belly or Salmon sounded luxurious but the Pork Belly was not so tasty and the shared side dishes were sparce. The dessert of Chocolate log(?) was very rich but tasty. The service was good and made the... More
