Pleasant, friendly staff. Very helpful. Good food. Temperature of room a little coolest for me.

The website shows an interesting menu for both lunch and dinner, but the reality is they don't have anything other than some dog eared piece of paper called express lunch- the chef chooses the entrée, you get chicken, lentils or lamb for a min....didn't stay for lunch better options elsewhere

We had high expectations which were dashed. An empty hotel lobby devoid of personality. Some retro chic might have been the aim of the designer but the 60’s Formica top tables and blank walls leatherette banquet and chairs just awful. The food was tolerable but forgettable. By far the best element. Which is good for a restaurant. I wouldn’t have wanted to be a resident if that’s what the hotel is like.

It alllooks good but actually is average at best. I hope that COVID goes away and the restaurant can sort itself out but from the layout and atmosphere to the food and service, it needs wirk

Very good service and food. The main dishes were a little underwhelming but everything was cooked nicely. Great for family outing or dinner dates. Thank You Barrel & Co!

I was underwhelmed by the ambience of the restaurant. My husband & I went for a special birthday celebration. I was expecting it to be classier as it is a 5 star hotel. What's with the tacky TV screen in the dining room? My Kingfish entree was absolutely delicious & I was excited for the rest of the meal but, sadly, my main course & dessert didn't really live up to my expectations. It was okay, very good even, but not memorable.

Superb dinner here, food was a triumph, beautiful roasted cherry tomato, Buffalo mozzarella salad, Eye fillet cooked to perfection, this chef knows what she's cooking, had some of my husband's civiche he had for entree was perfect, and all watched over by the graceful Anthony, who treated each guest with such professionalism you don't see any more, and even made my husband cosmopolitan which were not even on the cocktail menu. Well done team 5 stars. Russell & Thai

It was a great experience for my family and myself. Food was awesome, my kids loved to watch the chefs while they're cooking. The only disappointment for us was that T-bone steak wasn't available due to Xmas delivery shortages. Hopefully we will be able to try it next time.

Understaffed, 2 ladies running the bar, the restaurant and front of house. Clearly pullman have cut costs due to covid and it shows. Took about 20mins for them to come to the table to take our order, had to flag them down for drinks. Then when I wanted dessert they gave us the menus and didn't come back to take our order as a big group rolled in. Left and had dessert elsewhere. Cut corners = average feedback, sorry. Food was great but took a long time.

The main was Great 5/5 , starter (artisan bread) a couple of the breads were slightly doughy also a better selection of spreads would be advantageous, hummus is better on crackers so perhaps a garlic butter or something similar . Ordered a peach margarita however the tequila was so overbearing i couldn’t taste the peach, felt as if I was drinking straight tequila . Otherwise service & staff were excellent and I look forward to dining there again

Pleasant dining experience. Our server was attentive and quick to take questions out to the kitchen. I eat vegan and am allergic to peanuts but felt well catered for with a roast vege starter and a cauliflower steak main. Husbands steak was perfectly blue and an extra order of steamed veges was swiftly accommodated. Pai te mahi!

Very nice meal. Service good. Ambience good. Good value meal with the coupon we had but pricey based on normal prices. Very enjoyable overall.
