Dined here with friends and had a wonderful night. Great wine list and we hit the cocktail menu too. The food delicious and good proportions. To top the night off the service was fantastic. Will definitely return.

A huge disappointment and far below standard for an international casino. The food was poorer than a bad takeaway certainly not suited to the ridiculous prices on the wine list.The service was dreadfully slow and the restaurant dirty. The table behind us had a large...More
