When this modest hotel restaurant entered the scene, it offered a full buffet spread and has since scaled down to a semi-buffet. Appetizers and desserts are laid out buffet style, but soups and mains are ordered from the menu. We thought the food was pretty good—our various salads were tasty and the soups of the day (spicy seafood and French onion) were nice too. The main course of leather jacket on spinach with beans was absolutely yummy. For dessert, the chocolate fountain—the star from day one—is a must-try with a wide and interesting array of dried and fresh fruit, and marshmallows for dipping. Other Western and local cakes, as well as mousses served in bite-sized portions, are available too for variety. Considering the restaurant charges only $29.80 for all this, it is really good value. One feels though, that the setting needs to catch up with the food—while the buffet counters are modern, most of the restaurant looks endearingly retro. We hear there is a revamp in the pipeline, and we are glad because, with decent food under its belt, that is exactly what Vibe needs to make it go from good to great.
