The restaurant After a lengthy day of travelling it was time to try out the restaurant Tonight we try a vino tinto from Argentina Beef tenderloin with some interesting sauces was my choice Ric enjoyed a slightly different beef dish served with french fries and rice An earth to table concept is operated at the hotel where the vegetables and herbs are grown in a 10 acre organic plantation nearby An amazing choice of desserts was on the menu!!
