Beautiful dining area

The food was fantastic, servers were very friendly and even though there was a private party around the pool area our food and cocktails were served spot on!

Can be noisy by the pool but you can request interior seating. The area is nicely landscaped and allows dogs.

My poor mom. She's now fired from my memory after savoring the best comfort PB&J I have ever had... ever. Mom who?

Had breakfast and dinner here twice during our stay, and enjoyed it. The duck confit fries are an interesting variation worth trying. The Barramundi was excellent. The staff was exceptional. We were recognized by the each of the people who waited on us for breakfast and dinner the second time we came.

Very nice restaurant, good quality food at reasonable prices. The hotel offered a 20 percent dinner discount. I recommend chef's nightly selection

Excellent brunch. Display is amazing, variety of cold and hot buffet as well as desserts! We'll certainly go back. Do not stay more than 3 hours otherwise will have to pay $15.00 all day valet parking even if validated by restaurant.

Great range of food cooked to how you'd like it. Delicious deserts - the peanut butter one was Heaven! Cocktail menu is small but bar staff will deviate and make you what you want. Recommend the apple martins. Great place for lunch too. Fully heated so you can eat under the stars. Lovely fire pits to sit around.

Indulgence at it's best. When I lived in HB, literally blocks from the Hilton I'd frequently enjoy a cigar and a Loise XIII outside the restaurant or near the pool. I even stayed there a few times just to get away from my place. Yes, I know it's odd but hey, I was doing well ;) Go. Enjoy yourself some... More

Took in the pre brunch breakfast and found the pancake offerings were quite good. Although a bit pricey, the cost is reasonable for the location - and better than the brunch
