This restaurant has it all. Its fresh menu has not disappointed me in my four visits over seventeen years. The wine list is extensive. The service is outstanding. And the décor is elegant.

Had very good meal at Diva. Probably the best fish of our Canada trip. Starters and desserts were also good. Service excellent. Shame the restaurant was very quiet. Decent breakfast available.More

Problem is the cost of the breakfast is probably right for excellent hotel but an even better place only a couple of hundred yards from the hotel, a little Vietnamese cafe does an excellent breakfast for half the cost, well recommended.

Hi Sandra. People tend to be more casual on most days, but on special occasions like Christmas or New Year's Eve, they tend to dress up a bit more. We are casual fine dining, so come comfortable.

I only went to breakfast where there was everything from shorts to business suits. But I believe dinner and lunch are the same. I think you'd be fine in any attire.
