THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gabriel Restaurant Review

: Luxury restaurants are common in hotels, but it's unusual to find a good, moderately-priced restaurant that features an upscale menu that is composed mainly of small plate offerings. This means that visitors get the most complete samplings by the fact that they arrive in small groups, though solo diners with expanding waistlines could overeat happily by skipping through the menu and asking for a sweet corn soup, fried rock shrimp and pan-seared lamb chops, all for a minimal price tag. The menu changes regularly so don't get hooked on one particular dish, as its lifespan is inevitably limited. The Sunday brunch is gloriously decadent, with roast lamb and roast pig taking center stage. There's so much food here that you'll appreciate the endless flow of beverages to steady your nerves.
