“Fine dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Our family of five enjoyed dinner at Hildebrand's last night.

It must be said that the setting is delightful -on the water overlooking the passing and birthed ships and boats.

We were greeted and seated in a very hospitable manner. Our waiter as well as the other staff and managers were at all times friendly and professional. I was impressed with the attention to detail in the manner in which the tables were set.

What we ordered:

-Spinach ravioli (9/10)
-Calamari (7/10)
-Alfedo X2 (7/10)
-Beef cannelloni (9/10)

All in all, it's a a great restaurant with room for improvement in places as far as the menu is concerned. I would recommend it to others.

“Great & reasonable breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

We got a table with a view of the water. Excellent coffee offerings, large breakfast menu with choices for everyone. We enjoyed all of it. Our server was friendly and helpful, and most apologetic that we had to wait for the coffee machine.

“A Average Meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Just an average meal, the cooking is a little too rich and no really exciting meal, one would have expected more for the V & A
