I was a bit put off by some of the tripadvisor reviews, but we spent 3 nights at Jetwing St. Andrews (a fabulous hotel) and had 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners in this restaurant. The breakfasts were great, but the dinners were really haute cuisine!...More

This was a very disappointing experience given that the hotel is quite grand. The buffet food was average in quality and it was very messy. We arrived 1h30 into the buffet service and it looked like it had been open for hours. Look at other...More

We came here with high expectations having read a very favourable review in Lonely Planet. Unfortunately, the food is disappointingly average. While you will undoubtedly be tempted by the dazzling buffet, we do not recommend it. The individual dishes are not well executed, some overcooked,...More

Whilst the setting of the hotel itself was lovely and a drink in the bar beforehand was very enjoyable, the meal itself was a bit of a let down. Service was slow and perfunctory and the food was some of the most disappointing food we...More
