It’s difficult to get over the feeling that the Atlantis and the restaurants within are becoming a little bit jaded as the years have passed by – newer, slicker venues are opening inland, making the journey up The Palm’s trunk to one of the hotel’s restaurants more of an effort than perhaps it was in times gone by. This isn’t to say that venue’s such as Rostang shouldn’t be ruled out altogether. The venue is a competent recreation of a (sizeable) French Brasserie where staff even make an effort to greet you with a ‘Bonsoir’ as you walk through the door.
However, service isn’t quite as slick as the French accents – it’s either a little cloying or totally inattentive, but providing you maintain good humour, it’s bearable. As with the venue, the food proves to be a reasonable replication of classic French bistro dishes – from steaks to moules frites. Certainly nothing shines, but Rostang is worth a visit for its weekly promotions, which will feature all you can eat and all you can drink for a price that’s right. Otherwise, we suggest sticking to the Gallic options back on shore.
