Recently we visited Regency Bar and Grill located at Terra Nova All Suite Hotel on Waterloo Road, Kingston.
Regency Bar and Grill is an elegantly styled establishment, offering cocktails and a boutique menu. With low lights, comfortable lounge chairs, and moderate background music, it’s perfect for a relaxing lunch or dinner with friends.
There’s a U-shaped bar where you can have your meal or a couple drinks.
One observation we made was that the interior seemed more suitable for a small group (no more than four). While there’s adequate seating, the tables are small, and not able to hold enough plates and glasses.
On the other hand, the outdoors has a tropical setting, and more space on tables.
Regency restaurant menu items include Lobster Mac and Cheese, Regency Lamb Burger and Lobster Club Sandwich. They offer a wide range of wines and spirits, too. All prices are quoted in USD, and portion sizes are pretty decent. For an extended look at the menu, click here.
Mixed Reactions with Food
We ordered Pumpkin Soup; it was served in a neat, tiny cup and had a smooth consistency. Not exceptional, but tasty.
Next came the Garden Salad. Fresh and light, it came with a spicy, pickled dressing that made the dish interesting.
We also had the Rigatoni Pasta with Jerk Chicken-it had a thick, creamy sauce with just the right balance of flavors. However, the overcooked, bland chicken brought down the ratings for this dish.
Our final dish, the Regency Beef Burger, was most disappointing. Presentation earned high points, with caramelized onions, tomato and lettuce brightening the dish. But that was where the positives ended. We think toasting the burger bread was a bad idea. It was dry and did not complement the dish. It was like eating cardboard. Also, we had another issue with an overcooked and salty burger patty.
We don’t believe our recent experience is consistent with Regency Bar and Grill’s usual offerings, however. There were other instances where we’ve had better experience with the food. So we will visit again.
To add, we received an exceptional service. Very efficient and friendly, which we appreciated.
