Head to The Brasserie for an a la carte dining experience with waiter service and sea views that will get your hen do off to an amazing start, or treat yourselves to an all-you-can-eat buffet in The Kitchen where you can experience different tastes and flavours from around the world.

Both restaurants offer a wide range of beers, wines, and spirits, which is vital if you’re planning a hen do that involves having a drink or two, or you can opt for unlimited soft drinks in The Kitchen for a budget-friendly alternative.
