The reputation of the food was why we booked the restaurant and it was well deserved. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Great views from the restaurant

We took our visitors to Bistro Lago last night...and had what can only be described as a memorable meal..! From when we arrived to a warm welcome - to being presented with a delightful menu and an equally delightful waitress...plus we have to say your/our sommelier [Portuguese] was one of the best we have encountered...it all was HUGELY enjoyable! We almost didn't want to leave you... We WILL be back - soon :-)

Beautiful food. Thank you for the surprise on my birthday (topped off the night). Would love some sort of entertainment-music or a band

Enjoyable lunch. Adequate quantity and well presented and tasty. Pity that there were no other people there as felt very empty.

Unfortunately we found the food to not be that of Hilton standard. Beef creek ravioli should have been served with a spoon to fully enjoy the beef broth. Taurine should have been served with a crustini. Lamb needed more caramalization and resting time to avoid bleeding out onto the plate . Service howewas exceptional

The service was very slow and they took ages to take our drink order then had to go down to the cellar to get it. The girl who took our food order didn’t bring out the food, so the person who did had to ask who ordered what, we were only a table of 6. Expect better, it’s just not good enough. The food was quick and very good but Pork belly needed to be crispy

I booked weeks ago and then got sent the wrong reservation confirmation. I ordered a cake as it was my 50th Birthday lunch and it was dryer than cardboard which I mentioned and told them to throw the rest out I got a discount but still had to pay $50. The waitstaff were slow with drinks and service but otherwise lovely location

A warm and welcoming atmosphere with a stunning view. Delicious food and fantastic wine. The waitstaff were also excellent, attentive but not pushy or overbearing. A faultless experience.
