Newl, fresh and bright place to dine, with "Halal" food very well suited for Ramadan, food presentation is unique offering tasty and creative dishes. Outside ramadan the menu is digitally presented and follows a new "approach".

I tried the tuna as a starter, which was fresh and tasty. Also the shrimps with rooibus which was unique and authentic, loved it. Would eat there any other day

What an awesome time we had at the Hilton. The service was excellent and the waitresses was more than attentive and super efficient. The atmosphere was relaxing and the setting was amazing. Buffet breakfast was delish!

The restaurant, decor and food was great.The service however was absolutely horrific. The staff needs to be trained to be more professional and well informed to meet the high standards and demand of a leading brand such as the Hilton.

The Manager Marche was completely unprofessional but the waitress Zodwa was amazing. What they need to be told is that no matter how late they are running or how chaotic they are at the back, we as customers should not see nor hear.
