The Spanish style share plates and finger foods match the wide-range of wines from the glass wine cellar which also doubles at an artistic feature of the venue. The hotel’s flagship restaurant is the River Bank Restaurant. The menu is based on the “Pure Kitchen” concept which focuses on preparing food in the most natural and simple way to enhance individual flavor.
