La Plancha

This terraza Mexicana is Holiday Inn’s take on authentic Mexican street food serving up the best vibes in town. La plancha is a style of food preparation that combines high-temperature searing with a small amount of smoking, and the eats are influenced by taquerias, cantinas and street-side carts to bring you a real taste of Mexico.

Whether you’re joining for a chilled pool day with cold drinks and loaded nachos, or an alfresco dinner of the freshest grilled fish, most succulent steaks or sizzling prawns, every dish is freshly made and will leave your taste buds tingling.


With comfy seating, high speed Wi-Fi and power outlets, make Crumbs! your office for the day and enjoy hearty soups and fresh salads from the kitchen, or stop by to grab a fresh sourdough baguette or smoked salmon bagel to take home and devour in private.
