Bad Service, but the food was really good. Long times waiting. Porterhouse: 1* The World Eatery: 4* Moana: 5* The Service in the other Restaurants at Sofitel are much better. Special Thanks to the Service Crew of The World eatery and Moana.

We went to porterhouse for my Husbands Birthday.I had made the reservation weeks in advance. However they did nothing special, not even write a small happy birthday on the dessert ordered. We went for the three course menu based on the menu seen online. However when we went to the restaurant they did'nt have the lamb shank and said that the menu has changed. It is difficult to believe that a restaurant of this stature does not have such a basic ingredient. I do not eat beef, duck nor salmon and did not want to order the salmon or chicken. The restaurant gave me no choice but to order the seabream.Now coming to the food the delicate seabream was overcooked and under seasoned and so were the sides.The vegetable hot pot was undercooked and under seasoned.The roasted potatoes were old , under seasoned and tasted dry. My husband ordered the braised short ribs which were ok, the meat quality was poor and shreddy/dry. Also with regards to the appetisers we ordered the jumbo lump crab cake and the stuffed baby squid.The crab cake was an over processed patty where you could not feel any crab, also no one informed us the stuffed squid was a cold dish and a salad! Also out of the three desserts on the menu, we ordered two the trocadero and the lemon tart.They again did not have the trocadero, so we were forced to order two lemon tarts. The service was fine but we were heavily disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. The only saving grace was the lemon tart which was sublime. Will not recommend this place to others.

Service and ambience good. With just 2 drinks included and a limited courses (salad, pizza, striploin, creme brulee) i feel there are plenty of better value options out there. Striploin was cooked to perfection.

The overall experience was good except for the wait for the main course. After the appetizers, we have waited for more than an hour for the main course and we also had two little kids. It was clear that something went wrong as after 30 mins we were served by mistake the desert and other table that arrived way later than us got the main course before us. Mistakes happen but what I really didn't like is that nobody updated us of what was going on and nobody apologized for the long wait.

Great starter and main course, what a shame we had to wait 45 minutes for our dessert (sorbet and a slice of cake). Despite asking on three occasions how much longer the dessert would be, the food did not materialise. I had two tired children and I was disappointed to be told by members of staff that it was 'just coming', but we continued to wait, and wait. Things became a little clearer when the new signature dish of Baked Alaska was presented to the table next to us. I imagine preparing this is what was taking all of the chef's time up. I wish the staff had been honest with us about how long we needed to wait, as we'd have cancelled our order. Such a sad way to end the final meal of our otherwise fantastic holiday.

The Service & overall atmosphere is stunning. I would say that this is one of the best Steak house experiences I have indulged in. The quality of the food and the precision of the Steaks was amazing. I would give a full 5/5 rating for the Porterhouse and recommend to all my friends and family.

One of those rare experiences where everything is perfect beginning to end.. from ease of booking, ease of parking, to a great table, amazing service and they even allowed us to borrow the scarf for a walk by the beach after which we returned it. An amazing customer experience!
