This is part of the hotel complex and a good place too eat if you arrive after a long drive or a long day in the park. I had trout for dinner and it was delicious.

On a rainy weekend we ate here. The food was just ok. Service was good, but the chicken dish was dry. Suggest you go to the pizza place next door.

We were taken here by our son, and first visited the bar with its soaring, cathedral like ceiling and glass walls. Not an easy space to heat, but in the middle was an enormous hearth with a blazing fire, which was benefitting all the clientele, not just those sitting nearby.
The view was great, and made even more so by the powdery snow that fell all during our stay.
The service was friendly and efficient, and we considered eating in the bar at first, but felt we wanted something more substantial and refined.
So having ensured our eight week old granddaughter was fed and happily asleep, we made our way to the restaraunt, where we were served an excellent meal, with a good choice of fish meat and vegetarian dishes. Again, spectacular architecture, but kept cosily warm, and subtely lit, so we felt comfortable (as did our granddaughter who slept throuhout the meal).

Service alright and room and dinning area not bad to dine in. I had soup and salad bar, which could have been more sanitary-looking, honestly. Not many vegetarian or healthy options. Overpriced, but honestly nicer to eat in than some of the other hotel dining rooms in El Portal.

Was worried with only two places to eat the restaurant might be only so so but food was great! Soup and salad bar included was a plus. After long day in park we had all we could eat and was very relaxing. Ate here twice as felt it was better option than places in park.
