Maison Pierre Restaurant

Our restaurant and rooftop bar is also the ideal venue to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and parties, providing a beautiful space in which to celebrate and enjoy time with your friends and loved ones. The “Maison Pierre” breakfast concept is neither Continental nor American! It is the result of a study of the hotel Chefs and the contribution of our Xperience Hotels Ambassadors (guests) with the aim of offering an alternative proposal between the typical Continental breakfast and a menu with a richer and healthier content.
