Constrained for time, I chose the Cosl Cellar+ Grill for my dinner. Conveniently located in the Adelaide Hilton, I have eaten here before. Found the renovated restaurant a pleasant environment. Good/delicious food, efficient courteous service made for a very pleasant experience

Very well trained staff particularly in regard to wine, very impressive wine list and cellar. Food was cooked exactly as ordered which can be somewhat of a rarity these days.

We had a wonderful meal here in early April, mid-week. The food is faultless - absolutely beautiful and good-sized portions. The service was good, but it seemed that the staff were rushed off their feet. This impacts the dining experience.

it was a last minute decision to have dinner at the Coal cellar, and I am very glad we did. The food was fabulous, the service impeccable and the wine list a joy. The Morton Bay Bugs were mouth watering and the steak perfectly cooked,...More

We were given a free glass of Munster Riesling on 18/12/14 for lunch. Loved the wine & would like to know where to purchase. Could you let me know where. Thanks, Maureen

I'm guessing the wine maybe specially imported from Germany by the hotel chain. Try 'google'. Good luck!

Sorry I am not a Riesling drinker but I am sure the Brasserie Manager will send you a copy of their wine list that contains brief descriptions of all their wines.The waiting staff are very helpful
