Dining at the One80° Restaurant
During your stay, why not book a table at the hotel’s stylish One80° Restaurant and Cocktail Bar? The menu is carefully crafted by award-winning chefs whose aim is to provide the most delicious dining experience. Using seasonal ingredients and what the chefs describe as ‘a touch of city flair’, the team there have created a kitchen culture that is based on techniques and different backgrounds. That doesn’t mean the menu stays the same for long though, as they continuously endeavour to serve new flavours and textures.
Testament to the restaurant, the chef and his team are famous in the city for their signature main dish of Beef Wellington, and the One80° Restaurant has built up a strong local following – which we think is how you know that a restaurant is well worth a visit.
