Had the buffet breakfast of bacon, eggs, potatoes, yogurt, juice and coffee. Satisfying breakfast to start the day. Our server was friendly and courteous. Very pricey, but the food was average fare for a breakfast buffet.

My tour group of 24 ate here five mornings in a row while staying at the Royal Sonesta. We had the full breakfast buffet every morning. There was a good variety of well-prepared food each morning. The waiters were very friendly and accommodating.
