Good food with variety

Very expensive place to visit, buffet breakfast is close to $100AUD for two. Expect to pay $40 to $60 for mains. The food is pretty good but I can't see why the prices are so high.

We got the steak filet and salmon the first night we went there, and they were both incredibly well done. The steak was juicy with natural flavor (probably didn't even need the peppercorn sauce), the salmon was very flavorful as well. Went back the next night, and I couldn't resist getting the steak again. Highly recommended - meal was expensive,... More

Very romantic Great service, good food. We sat on the patio and as we looked out toward the ocean everything was pitch black, except for the moon and stars.

Went here as it was easy as we were staying at the Hilton, we ordered 9hr lamb which was delicious an the fish of the day also nice, the tuna was good also an the salmon nice but vegetables came a little cold. The black pearl chocolate sphere was very entertaining however not very big, also would have probably preferred... More

The reviews that I have read are fair to say. The service we had was excellent. The food was decent, but not great. It's a bit overpriced, however the views of the sunset are amazing from this place. Try it if you're staying at the Hilton, but don't feel the need to travel there.

We ate here twice during our stay and the food is outstanding ! Seafood is fresh and steak was cooked to perfection. Our favorite dish was the duck trilogy.

If you want to stay in one night, this is definitely an option for dinner. A little on the expensive side however it's quite convenient. The Polynesian night buffet was not bad. Once again, a little expensive however if you like raw tuna and such, it's worth it!! Plus the entertainment....

We ate here on our first night at the resort and have to say we were impressed. We both had the seafood papardelle and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also ate here each morning for breakfast and found the selection and quality of the buffet very good.

We ate at Arii Vahine Steakhouse twice during our stay at the Hilton. Both times we were very impressed by the quality of the food and attentiveness of the staff. Another reviewer mentioned the food quality was lacking but we thoroughly enjoyed our means; we also ordered the steak and red curry prawns and I thought both meals were delicious.... More
