    Booked here to celebrate my wife's Birthday whilst staying at the hotel. Couldn't fault the quality of the food. I had the Rib Eye steak which was delicious however I did have to ask for a steak knife. Only complaint was there was no non dairy option on dessert menu.

    Looking for a family meal in the Waterloo area, we picked POTUS mostly because they had a “kids eat free” offer running. Interestingly, they had neither a children’s menu nor option for smaller portions, even with a special request to the kitchen. The menu was average international hotel restaurant stuff (steaks, fish and chips, burger, lasagne) without much in the way of concessions to the restaurant’s nominal “American” theme, and the food was indifferently prepared: French fries were excellent, but a portion of ribs was dry and virtually sauce-free, and a battered fish was deep fried so long that it had gone dark brown. Service and wine were both excellent, however.

    I visited with my girlfriend and we asked for a nice table and we were given one near the fire and we were allowed to stay very late at New Year's Eve. The service and friendliness were outstanding. I would go again.

    Great restaurant, food was fantastic. Steaks took a bit of time to reach the table compared to the other foods. Hope to visit again.

    Food acceptable but very quiet and staff seemed to be bored. The wine we ordered wasn't available and we were offered a worse year but still charged full price. Wasn't good value but they know they can over charge tourists.

    Very nice restaurant. Friendly service. Good food, especially the Truffle Mac & Cheese and the Sirloin Steak. I'll definitely go back. Special thanks to Ciprian for the special attention and amusing anecdotes.

    The cauliflower steak was very good, although served cold first time. It was cleverly presented and I’d absolutely try again. The staff seemed slightly busy / multiple areas to cover

    Our first visit was OUTSTANDING! Amazing food, fabulous service and we couldn’t wait to come back. I’m not sure whether we caught them on a bad day or the chef has changed but my steak was such a disappointment. It was over cooked and a little tough. The first time we went it was possibly one of the best steaks I had ever had. The service was slow and it took about 5 mins for two glasses of wine and there was only one other table in. I will definitely try them one more time to give them the benefit of the doubt as it was so fabulous the first time. I really hope we just caught them on an off day.

    Excellent, friendly staff from the moment you arrive to when you leave. Food is excellent quality at a reasonable price. The room was neutrally decorated with well laid tables and comfortable chairs.
