As is the case with most of the large hotels in Rome, the St George has chosen to set aside its top floor as a terrace which houses an open-air restaurant and bar between April and October. meals under the wooden pergola or under tautened voiles and a panoramic view of the rooftops of Rome. When the weather is not so good guests eat inside, under the glass roof beyond the lobby or in the adjacent areas, one for the restaurant and the other for the wine bar. Recommended: the wine bar, as it serves wine by the glass (Italian only and therefore very carefully selected) for around £7-8. Given the upmarket nature of the hotel this is perfectly reasonable. Also recommended (still with a view to experiencing the latest Roman trends in terms of "chic lunch"): the set lunch menu, which consists of an hors-d'oeuvre (antipasto), a pasta dish, a salad, a dessert, mineral water and a glass of wine on the same (tray-sized) plate. This all comes to £32, the price of a "chic lunch". Well-informed gourmets will no doubt compare this to the dishes served à la carte: cheek of veal with sautéed potatoes, fillet of beef, ratafia vinaigrette sauce (as a change from balsamic), mullet with aubergines, etc. Excellent dishes but at a price of at least £23. As far as breakfast is concerned, it is served in the same area (under the glass roof and in the adjacent room) in the form of a nicely presented and tasty American buffet.
