MANY restaurants strive to be the best in their respective regions and some achieve it.
But just getting to that position is only one part of achieving success.
To stay at the top requires continual reviews of the menu, consistently serving top quality meals and importantly outstanding service.
The Prince Alfred Hotel in Raceview is a great example of how to maintain a reputation as a special place to go.
Ruel Cristobel has been the head chef at the PA for more than 10 years and he looks over a dedicated team in the Char’d Restaurant.
When you have seating for 250 dinner guests your processes need to be well honed, and the continual training of staff also needs to be a priority.
This is how Char’d rolls, and its success has rested on this along with securing the best quality produce.
Major hotel association awards have been plentiful for the PA Hotel and much of that success has revolved around the success of Char’d which for many in Ipswich is now their special dinner place to go.
Those looking for the best steak in town invariably book a table at Char’d, but now it’s also known for its seafood selections and specialty items.
An example of that has been the latest introduction of the Smash Burger, which like its name has been a smash hit.
The PA Hotel has also become renowned for the expansive beer selections in its Tap’d Bar where patrons can select from an impressive 72 beers on tap.
