This is a newly furbished restaurant with a menu focussed on South Australian produce. Had a pan seared Robarra Barramundi which was delicious and a lime curd tart for dessert which was also yummy

On a recent stay at the Hilton, we had a few sessions of evening drinks at the Coal Bar. Drinks were VERY expensive but the service and the decor were wonderful. Their wine display is impressive.

Had a group lunch here recently & we all had the $25 express lunch. Great value with a choice of main course & dessert & a drink & coffee all included! The restaurant was packed out but staff kept on top of things. Highly recommend this place for a quick lunch. Will return to try their alacarte menu.

I had dinner here while staying at the Adelaide Hilton. I had a very good fish carpaccio which was delicious and a fairly pedestrian burger. It's an ok hotel restaurant.

Was staying at the hotel and decided to book a table, had heard good things. Really enjoyed the meal, we had the steak to share - was very impressive, requested medium rare and it was more like rare but that was OK. The service was OK, staff seemed to rush around and it wasn't as polished as I would have... More

Although I found the menu options to be limited, the wine list was extensive, so we chose our favourite Barossa wines then chose food to suit. The pumpkin gnocchi was the best I've tried and the Moreton Bay bugs delish. Would have loved to see more SA produce, especially seafood, on the menu. Just my personal preference. Diners next to...

We usually avoid all hotel restaurants like the plague as they are always below average. This time we took a chance with three colleagues and all were impressed with both the service and meals. We would certainly return.

An excellent experience from the decor, service, wine list and of course the food. It was my first visit to the Hilton after the renovation of the lobby bar and the Brasserie/Grange restaurants. And it was fantastic. Great selection of wines, excellent menu. Our food was almost perfect from the selection of starters to the showpiece the tomahawk steak, cooked... More

Decided to try breakfast whilst staying at the hotel, to be honest I think that it was good but the previous arrangement was better. Probably most food lines are the same but they were better presented previously and seating wasn't as poor as it is now. I was seated on a bench and the space between table and bench is... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the remodeled former Hilton Hotel Brasserie, A Pleasant ambience has been created with the new decor...circular booths or traditional tables...service was swift, food was amazing...The Tomahawk steak is the house speciality for two or three.....coupled with an extensive wine list...this establishment can't but fail to provide a memorable dining experience.....9/10
