My birthday dinner for 30 + people was organised by ordering our meals in advance. The idea was to ensure the Chef was prepared to serve dinner on time and for the correct individual. In short, the night was a success and it was a result of great communication and understanding from the Restaurant and Bar manager Mr Adit Chopra. All guests received and enjoyed their meals (from the main menu). Both Anna and Chris were very helpful. i do recommend Novotel Tainui Hamilton Restaurant based a successful birthday dinner with 30 + friends.
Sunday lunch. Staff were v attentive and friendly, food and drink was served quickly. Lunch was delicious and the serving sizes we’re v generous - unless u are v hungry a single main is all u need. Every pleasant spot and a nice sunny Sunday.
Food took a while to come out, but the Lamb Rump was absolutely delicious. My husband had the salmon which was a little in the bland side. Thoroughly enjoyed all the cocktails
The Waiter we had was so polite, friendly and he had such a great sense of humour, he made sure we were well looked after. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We had a pleasant evening and will definitely come back and stay at your beautiful Hotel.
Very nice staff and meals
Yummy food and fantastic service. Only criticism is when we ordered the sorted breads and dips there was not enough dips to go with all the bread so needs to be a bigger quantity of dips.
Devine food. Very impressed that the menu sourced local grown produce.
The restaurant is attractive and modern. The food is just average. The fresh ika entre was not very fresh. Everything else was ok but leaves lots of room for improvement. The service was pretty lousy. You need to flag down the waitress.
We had a lovely meal the food was excellent, just abit long to wait between courses.
The wine and beer were ice cold and delicious..gnocchi very nice. Hubby's steak tough though and garlic bread too thin and crispy for our liking. Service friendly.
Our greeting was not the best and the lighting was poor,food and service were perfect.
The waiting staff were lovely. Although we were 10 mins early, there was a female staff member who worked at the bar. She didnt acknowledge us, so it would've been nice if she told us that she will have someone come see to us soon. Anyway, food was delicious. I loved the starter - grilled octopus. & the main, grilled chicken was divine. Cooked to perfection. Dessert was delicious - duck island icecream - 3 scoops! Lol! The atmosphere was very nice. Pretty decor, loved the big lights. Friendly staff, apart from the one who was working at the bar :(. So, all in all i had a lovely time there & it was my birthday. Thank you! Will definitely come back again!
the food was delicious and service was frienfly. i really enjoyed meals with my friends.
Waited too long for next drink order to arrive, had to get up and remind staff. I was informed she was putting the food order through. Then my salmon main meal was forgotten. Wasn’t a busy night.
j am a regular customer. The new Chef is doing a good job. I like his new menu starters but wish there were a seafood dish in with the mains. Value is good with the Accor card but I wish there were more special offers such as cheap beers, which Novotel used to have each week. I make a point of not recommending friends to restaurants.
waiter was hopeless
Food was great, but big took a long time tbetween first and last main course for the table, first meals out got cold awaiting the rest, they missed drink orders and ran out of wine glasses.
Excellent, friendly service. Delicious and well presented food
Our waitress was awesome!
Defintely worth the visit. Menu could be slightly bigger with choice - but we were all happy.
Rather nice. Good food. Relaxed service.
The food was delicious, the staff were friendly, welcoming, and paid us just the right amount of attention, not intrusive but very attentive. The time between the serving of courses was just right. The food really makes for a revisit and I have no hesitation in recommending Restaurant on Alma to others. Big thanks to all the staff for a wonderful dinning experience.
Food was exceptional. Service was good either. love it and will come back for sure.
Nice. Would recommend
