Hillside is in a good location and is very well furnished and decorated to create a peaceful atmosphere. Our meal was from the £28 three-course menu and was well-presented but ( for me) not very warm. I had duck and my wife had plaice, and...More

We had a delightful dinner at Hillside last week for the first time in a couple of years. For ambience, personal service, views and cuisine it cannot be beaten on the Island. Why this isn't number 1 in terms of Tripadvisor reviews is beyond me....More

Not our first visit and most definitely will not be our last. The new menu was fresh and exciting, all presented beautiful and tasted amazing. Staff were very friendly and attentive and we were made to few very at home.

We had a wonderful meal in relaxing and tranquil surroundings. The restaurant is intimate with just a few tables and looks out onto the gardens. The food was delicately prepared and delicious. A great place for a special intimate meal.

On an evening with diversions and hail scouring the roads as we entered Ventnor, Hillside beckoned like nothing else. Our host, Gert, umbrella at the ready, was there to guide us to a parking spot as we swung in the gateway. What a welcome! Once...More

Great vegetarian options. Hillside gives a warm welcome whether you are on your own or in a group. Dinner is served in the restaurant between 7pm and 8pm. Please feel free to arrive earlier to enjoy Hillside and the surroundings for a pre-dinner drink in our sitting room, conservatory or terrace.
