The Grand Cafe offers a superb dining experience offering a rich and diverse range of tasting options as starters to perfectly smoked salmon and traditional mains. We highly recommend this smorgasbord.

Yeah the food was actually really terrible lol. Like the fish and chips were cooked perfectly but every dessert was disgusting (totally inedible, except the ice cream was pretty alright, good sauces), and then the ham was dry as a desert, the Moroccan chicken should have been called cilantro chicken (couldn’t even taste the chicken), the saag didn’t taste like spinach or saag at all but would have been good if it was a stew I suppose, the soup was gritty lol, the eggs benedict were sweet? Like they literally taste like vanilla? You couldn’t taste the Hollandaise even though they were literally drowning in it and the eggs were undercooked. Also it says on the website that breakfast is served until 2 - and that lunch is added. But that’s not really the case at all. I’m highly disappointed.

So great to have breakfast available in the weekends, always enjoy the food it's always freshly cooked and served. The variety is just right and the foods are spread out nicely for easy traffic to and from the tables. Thank you.

We had a beautiful meal here. The variety of food on the buffet was varied & there was something for all tastes. The only negative here is that with First Table' you only have 1 1/4 hrs to eat so it makes for quite a rushed evening, trying to get through several courses in that time in the evening. Also staff were very attentive but were waiting for your empty plates to whisk away. The guy sitting next to us was still eating when a waitress tried to take his plate away. Will definitely be back though as we loved the food.

Excellent range of food, but would have liked a few more salad items to choose from. Next time I w1ll be trying out the Pasta which looked interesting. The Curried Chicken was to die for.

No record of my booking, which had been made and confirmed that morning. Luckily there was a space and the staff were accommodating.
