Had a chicken ciabatta for $15, it and salad were both very generous and tasted amazing. The chef, Ali, is a great guy and obviously a fantastic chef and asset to Hilli. Would definitely recommend it for a great lunch!

A lovely little restaurant where the food is always great. Try their lychee coconut sorbet! Best to book for dinner or lunch. Great scones too.

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a delicious dinner at Hilli Restaurant Norfolk Island. Our memorable evening began when we walked into the restaurant and saw our reserved table decorated with scattered rose petals and a small chalk board bearing the message "Happy Wedding anniversary". The staff were very attentive (as they were with other customers too) and our... More

We did dinner, lunch, and devonshire tea. Good quality, service, presentation and unlike many places, was open pretty much all day. Cafes tend to close around 2.30 pm.

This restaurant works hard to get everything right and deserves it's position at the top of the islands eateries. The staff are attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. The food is well presented and quality. I particularly enjoyed the focus on locally produced ingredients. The one area that needs some work is the wine list. The development of a cellar of quality...

This is a lovely cafe located beside the art gallery and gardens with verandah and outdoor seating. We had two lovely lunches here but on both occasions we were underwhelmed with the service. On the first occasion it took ages for us to be given menus or water or it even acknowledged we were there and on the second occasion... More

We dined here for dinner as a group of 5 on News Years Day. The service was fantastic, and the food devine. We went back for lunch a few days later and the meals were just as delicious and generous with very competitive pricing.

We called in twice for coffee and snacks. The coffee was not to my liking at all, however the scones, friands and cakes were very nice. The staff were very good on our first visit, but the same two girls were distant and disinterested on our second visit. The setting is lovely, with pleasant gardens adjoining and a nice outdoor...
