The breakfast room is classic, like the rest of the hotel, except for the bold artichoke-shaped light fittings which hang from the ceiling. There is a well-stocked bar which divides the breakfast room from the restaurant, where the centrepiece is the aquarium with an assortment of brightly coloured tropical fish. This aquarium can also be seen from inside the restaurant, the award-winning Pri Levu.
For us this was the highlight of the Lev Hotel. With split-level seating areas, Pri Levu is located on the ground floor just off the lobby bar but can also be accessed from the street. The contemporary but elegant decor (spectacular glass bauble light fittings, gold columns, gun metal curtains) creates a chic and intimate atmosphere; while it is undoubtedly 'design' it is far from being cold.
The food eaten here is simply excellent. While there are multi-course weekly specials, the regular à la carte menu is also worth a look. During our visit we relished a starter of Iberian ham served with olives and ewe's milk cheese, followed by a traditional dish of flour dumplings and chanterelle mushrooms, lamb confit with herbed cheese dumplings, and finished off with a decadent chocolate dessert. Each course was slowly savoured with a glass of local wine. What really stood out however was the incredibly professional service - knowledgeable waiters who never put a foot wrong - making you realise you are indeed at a five-star establishment with service to match.
