This seafood buffet was flavourful, hot, filling, and surprising. While it did not have the standard crab legs or lobster tails (which I don't love anyway) it had so much else to offer, most of which I had never had before. Salmon mousse, curry shrimp salad, hot curry with mussels and shrimp, and much more! The dessert buffet had a... More

The variety at the breakfast buffet was incredible. It included all types of seafood, breakfast items, omelet bar, chocolate fountain and desserts to die for! Expensive, but well worth the $30.00

After noticing the brunch buffet while attending a conference at the hotel, I was quick to return and enjoy it. The food was beautifully displayed and absolutely delicious. The restaurant had a comfortable feel to it and we had a lovely view of the mountains from our table. For the most part, our experience was exceptional except for the service... More

Asked if soup of day came with bread the waitress said it was up to chef sometimes he did sometimes he didn't !! We asked to clarify and were told I'd didn't so we ordered 2 pieces of toast. The toast was burnt which they charged an extra $5 plus tax and the soup was cold.

Nice quiet atmosphere. Friendly staff. A little expensive and does not open until 7:00am. Food is excellent and served quickly, coffee was very good, able to order dark brew which I like. Can of course be included on your hotel bill which makes payment easier and for a quicker getaway when you need to be somewhere.
