Is there a "no jeans" policy (or anything else) in the restaurant?
I only had breakfast and the dress code was casual. Don’t know about the restaurant in the evening.

Does anyone know the prices for evening meal please
Hi, I cannot recall how much we paid. It is very hard to find any details on the web too. They have a nice formal 'Noke' restaurant or you can have an informal dinner at a table in the 'Oak & Avocado' bar. We ate in the bar and I recall the food was very nice and reasonably priced.
