The fact that one doesn’t have to leave the building to find entertainment is kind of refreshing. After meeting up with a friend for drinks at the bar/lounge, we had dinner in the dining area of the hotel. There is choice to be seated at higher bar-like tables or regular tables which can be joined together for larger groups.
As for the menu, it has a small portion dining concept like many restaurants have nowadays, but we don’t mind because we like to taste different dishes. There’s also a weekly chef selection of 4 dishes for a fixed price. We preferred to eat à la carte. The prices are very reasonable; starting at €5 for a soup up to €13 for fish or meat.
We had the salade niçoise with a slice of grilled tuna as a starter, the salmon in phyllopastry and the coquilles with truffle and brioche bread as a main. We concluded our meal with two desserts: the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and the banana/caramel cheesecake.
The food is based on local cuisine with a global twist. It is all fresh and savoury, the portions are indeed not very big, so for the men we would recommend the 4 dishes for a consistent meal. The wine menu is varied; white, red, rosé or sparkling. Most important wine producing countries are covered in the selection, such as France, Italy, Spain, South-Africa, New-Zealand, Austria, Australia, the US and Chili. To accompany our meal we had the Boschen Blanc from Franschhoek, South-Africa.
