Try the fish, it's really well prepared

We decided to eat at the hotel rather than fight the crowds outside. Unlike a lot of hotel based restaurants, this restaurant served us creative and delicious meals in a relaxed manner. Our server was freindly and helpful.

Started with appetizers, mussels were great, but duck confit was cold and crispy pork belly was far from being crisp, more like limp bacon. Was never informed of specials or fresh catch if they had any. Server wasn't sure which steak belonged to who, and the temperature was wrong also. Our trio of sorbet was a duo and chocolate torte...

Food excellent we had the french fries as a late night snack a long with our cocktails one night and the next night we had the fried oysters with our french fries and cocktail. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Everything was reasonably priced too.

It's tough to compete in a popular location that draws lots of people who want nothing but the best when it comes to dining. Generally, hotel dining rooms are not at the top of the list of fine dining establishments. Aviles, however, does a good job of competing. While we didn't enjoy dinner here, we did sample breakfast, and it... More

My family and I thought Christmas Day was a perfect opportunity to visit the special holiday buffet at Aviles Restaurant in the Hilton St. Augustine Historic Bayfront Hotel. The restaurant turned out to be the grinch who stole the Christmas spirit. For $50 per person I expect a reasonably nice buffet with plenty of good quality food. However, this buffet... More

Dinner and breakfast were equally good. Fresh ingredients and large portions. Service was a little slow at times.

I visited the hotel on my way through the area and found the hotel to be fantastic. The parking is great and the staff is friendly and available to provide a great experience. I met Peter, the night auditor, and found him to be very interesting and very happy at his job. Tom, the bartender, was entertaining, though he ultimately... More

The location of Aviles is not the best being in the lobby of the Hilton. Once you get past that the food is made to order and chief Cassidy personal touch is felt. I have the sea food appetizer and it was perfect, followed by the pork chop that was cooked leaving it tender, juicy and full of favor!

Visited Sunday for dinner and found the food to be amazing. I had two appetizers Goat Cheese Salad and Pork Empanadas. My friend had Seaford Paella. We were very pleased with the food and the dining area was beautiful and very comfortable . The area that was disturbing was the bar/lounge area located directly behind the dining area, the patrons... More
