The ambience is nice, but the food is not worth it.
I thought I would give The Laureate a try based on some reviews I read. I don't usually go to hotel restaurants. A cold steak and a cold Sauce de Paris do not go well together.
The fillet steak was very good and cooked exactly as ordered (medium/rare). The chips were also good. There was a 'dash' of shallot puree, half a tomato and half a shallot, so a little light on the accompaniments. I did ask for more sauce and it was brought, free of charge.
The calamari was tender and, for a starter, was a good sized portion. However, again, there was not enough aioli. We ordered our deserts, choosing ice cream. The waiter came back saying that the freezer had defrosted overnight and the ice cream hadn't frozen again yet and was still runny. This was a bit of a let down, but never mind they said you can have cream instead. A shame as most of the deserts had ice cream with them and we were still charged full price.
The restaurant is nice but overpriced in a city where there are so many other good restaurants to choose from.
It’s actually a restaurant within a hotel which I didn’t realize until I arrived.
It is well decorated and quite comfortable but since it is a hotel restaurant the ambience is a bit sanitary. I ordered a non-alcoholic beverage which was not great at all and was quite citrusy and ended up getting sent back and swapped for a simple elderflower tonic on ice. Their soup of the day was absolutely divine and turned the meal around but my main meal of rice and beef was unexpected as I anticipated a small piece of beef steak and rice not that the beef was minced into the rice.
The meal as a whole was nothing extraordinary but the service was very good and made up for the average dining experience.
