We felt the food and drink were very over priced compared to the quality. We had a voucher thankfully but had I paid the $93 for 2 very average main courses and 3 drinks (2 wines and 1JD) I wouldn't have been happy.

Would of liked 3 specials that where not on the menu and a bit cheaper. The menu was dearer than it needed to be. I have dined at other accor places with food as good and their prices where not that high....Also it had wierd size steaks, I like a 250g Eye fillet and there"s was 450g. However the atmosphere was nice and the cocktails where reasonable at $15, and, desserts where yummy. Would really like to see a bit more vegetables with my lamb rack. Overall it was great for my birthday, but I would not dine here every week due to the high prices on the menu.

We had a show to watch at Qpac so thought this would be an easy place to go to before hand. I booked online through Accor as I am a member, when we arrived and told our name for the booking, they didn't seem to have a table reserved for us and kind of just showed us to sit anywhere we wanted, the restaurant was not busy. Service was good and friendly enough, and quick enough and food was tasty. Getting the accor prices was ideal not sure I would pay full price. The only downside was when I got the bill it was hard to check quickly they had applied the discount correctly as it was just one line item. When reviewing the bill later at home they had missed some discounting to food items so that was disappointing. Also the website says there are fees for carparking so I paid for carparking at the secure parking next door however when we arrived we found out there was complimentary carparking so maybe that should be made a bit clearer. All in all the food and service was good and I would come back again.

Most of the food was excellent, apart from our veggies that we specifically asked to be 'crunchy'/undercooked. Even when we politely pointed out they were overcooked, the replacement was the same. The manager kindly didn't charge use for the veggies (which was fair). On the whole, good value with a accor members card.

It was a quiet night however the service was extraordinarily slow and we found ourselves waiting for extended periods of time despite numerous attempts to get the waitress’s attention. When we did, she seemed quite apathetic.

We had a good night just a few things which could be done better. Waitress staff not attentive enough, the chips were far to salty, drinks over priced, and we had desert Creme Brulee, waiting dropped the dish onto the table no plate no biscuit just a small dish of brulee....??? strange! Oh and the lighting could be dimmed for atmosphere to bright. Other then that fine.

Unfortunately I had dinner and breakfast here and I was very disappointed in the both the service and the quality of food. Firstly service, Sat night dinner 1 person serving food , 1 person at the bar and 100 people in the restaurant - the result 20 to 30 minute wait for a drink or service, 45 minute wait for the food. Multiple people including myself had to go to the bar person to ask her to get drinks served. I felt sorry for the staff as they were understaffed to accommodate this restaurant which still had plenty of free tables - it would have been a night mare if the restaurant was full. I had made a reservation for dinner (7pm) but they did not bother to check a reservation list probably because they were half full. The food was reasonable but not outstanding and probably over priced for the serving - $52 for 4 lamb chops - a bit expensive. Now to Breakfast - similar situation with poor service - the chef making omelettes was more interested in talking to female wait staff than preparing the omelettes with no orders ahead me took 20 minutes for 2 omelettes while he kept doing every other job and talking except cooking. The couple of staff who ere clearing tables seemed to be struggling with plates piling up on tables. The overall quality of the food and offerings were more like an Ibis than a Novotel. As a platinum accor member I get to see many levels of this chain, the food and beverage at this Novotel is definitely not up to standard. Hopefully they will get it right shortly or maybe it was a bad night for them.
