In complete contrast to the Beach Hotel which is connected to the Ginger restaurant this had a modern, clean fresh feel about it, although the staff were a bit more stuffy and less relaxed than the hotel team. Great choice of dishes on the menu...More

Restaurant with ambitions, but with a veranda overlooking a parking lot and a busy street, it drags the score down. Still a pretty nice place for a Sunday lunch.

Was the default restaurant at the hotel and what a wonderful surprise. Great food and great service. Absolutely worth a visit. Great wine menu and phenomenal cocktails menu.

Best chicken salad I had in the EC! Simplicity at its best- excellent vinaigrette, fresh lettuce, beautifully marinated chicken with crispy skin. Could consider a change in coffee beans. Service was very professional and friendly. Good wine list. Great views.

Last minute reservation for 4 and they were good to accommodate our preference for table inside on a chilly evening. Service quite slow but dinner very good.
