Hilli restaurant is reputed to be the best on Norfolk Island. I haven’t been to them all, but I think that this reputation is probably well deserved. We liked it so much that we dined there twice, having different dishes each time.

We especially liked the salt and pepper calimari and salad entree, plus the beef and lamb main courses with delicious French style jus. The desserts and cocktails were also good.

The wine list was a bit limited because of the island situation, but was OK. Service was timely and efficient. Ambience was pleasant.

One of the few 7 day a week restaurants on NI. We had morning tea with lovely scone jam & cream, delightful lunch of local fish & chips - well done & very filling. We also had an evening meal which was very well cooked & presented. Excellent staff who knew us by the 3rd visit & were attentive without being effusive. Always busy with locals which is the sign of a good establishment. Reasonable value & we left each time feeling satisfied.

Delicious food in a very pleasing garden setting. Charming and efficient wait staff. Reasonably priced for top class food with a good wine list. An excellent night.

We went to the restaurant based on recommendations & found it disappointing because of the very limited menu. Many of their dishes were "off" & the selection was similar to most other places, i.e. trumpeter fish, a steak, pork chops or chicken. There was no soup entree mostly a selection of bread or pate.
While the food was well prepared we expected a more varied choice, particularly knowing that they were one of the more expensive restaurants. We would not go again without knowing the selection of dishes available.
The staff were young local girls who seemed disinterested & aloof.
