Restaurants at the Gatwick Europa Hotel
Exotic atmosphere, traditional food
The Mediterranee restaurant is on the mezzanine just above the front desk, and its window seats overlook the central garden. The Europa hotel opens its restaurant for breakfast and dinner.
A cooked breakfast buffet is served from 6.30am to 9.30am, with continental breakfast for early risers from 5am. Choose from toast, porridge, cereals, and all the English breakfast favourites youd expect; eggs are cooked to order. You can also order continental breakfast in your room. At weekends, breakfast times are 7am to 10am.

In the evenings, the restaurant offers a self-service carvery, including a soup of the day, salads and cold appetisers, a selection of roast joints, fish and a vegetarian option. Fine dining it aint, but the carvery makes good sense for hungry guests as you can cut and come again until youve eaten your fill; and if an all-you-can-eat roast dinner isnt enough to put a stopper in your appetite, the dessert tray should be. Water is included in the carvery; all other drinks must be bought from the bar downstairs.
If the carvery isnt to your liking, or youd rather chow down in a more informal environment, Rafters Bar serves hot meals and bar snacks from noon to 10pm. The menu is classical British fish and chips, ham and eggs, steaks and burgers are all on offer for around £6, and there are soups and salads for lighter eaters too. The bar menu is handy for families or travellers with an early start who would like to eat before the restaurant opens.
Room service is also available 24 hours a day - the menu features snacks and light meals.
