Slap me with a crow and call me Dumbo!

Two nights and many wonderful dishes. The chilli lamb was exquisite. A veritable tsunami of flavour and fire. Quite simply the best spiced lamb I have ever eaten. Oh and that Baileys milkshake was heaven. Impeccable staff with impeccable manners. Just joyful.

Beautiful Resturant at the Hilton, big portions and plenty of choice! Staff were great and couldn't do enough for us. We sat outside which was lovely as the setting of the marina in Portomaso is stunning!

Booked a table at 8:30pm for my wife and 8 year old son on a Saturday night in August. Whilst we would normally order Thai food for our son, we were pleased to be offered the Hilton hotel kids menu for our son and ordered a pizza. However this turned out to be a terrible mistake. After two hours, my... More

Both of us opted for the set menu, and we struggled to finish it off. Very nice ambience and good food. Desert was a bit of a let down. But on the whole nice dining experience.

As the title says! Very pleasant meal in a lovely location if you are outside looking out over the marina. The restaurant has lots of character and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money as well

The Blue Elephants are all pretty similar offering a faux Thai experience within a Disneyesque interior. I asked to be moved from an area with bright lights beating down on the table to somewhere a bit calmer which they did without issue. It's popular for smooching couples and candle lit dinners. The food is of a good standard and the... More
