Service was great but I did notice that we made a mess on our table after our entre but the waitress did not clean the table between entre and mains. This would have been a nice touch. Just a wet cloth, no chemical sprays. It was a very quiet, relaxed atmosphere which is nice but we felt like the whole restaurant could hear our conversation. So maybe the background music a little louder. Or different levels at each end of the restaurant. Food was cooked to perfection. Compliments to the Chef. The little complimentary taster of another meal on the menu that we did not choose was a great idea. Will bring people back again. Great job, Thanks.

We were very pleased with the quality of food, friendly service and beautiful view. Our steak and lamb entrees were cooked perfectly. The portion size was just enough to to fill us leaving room to try their delicious deserts. I highly recommend this place for a delicious dinner.

Thanks for the personalised attentive service. The restaurant was quiet for lunch today, and it was great to have the meal options clearly explained to us

Did not appreciate being sat behind a sofa. Did not expect to have to return my meal to the kitchen.Three different bottles of wine poured into same glass! Meals not served at the same time. We had to ask for cutlery to eat our main courses with. Not at all Hilton standards.

Excellent staff who knew the menu and provided top service, but tended to overdo the table visits. The menu is on the light side with smallish portions. Our vegetarian enjoyed her dish but I found the pork belly slightly overcooked, stringy and rather lonely on the plate. Still, an enjoyable evening and highly recommended.
