Description: Hillside Restaurant offers fine European dining with a Scandinavian twist, made of our own and local produce - freshly prepared and presented in menus which change frequently - giving a choice of 5 starters, 5 mains and 5 desserts. 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. Hillside Restaurant has an extensive wine list carefully priced. Whether a couple or a larger group, it's a wonderful place to enjoy a delicious meal in a lovely setting with far reaching sea views. Booking is essential as the restaurant can get busy with locals.

A long weekend staying at Hillside was made even better by the quality of the restaurant. Between us we sampled all options from the menu and nobody was disappointed. Good wine list as well and all at reasonable cost - and shared with impressive artwork in the dining room and throughout the hotel.

The restaurant, staff and food at Hillside is unpretentious and most pleasing. I find that the pre-dinner bread served at a restaurant is always a good indicator of the quality of the meal that is to follow - and the bread at Hillside is really delicious!

The atmosphere in the restaurant was always pleasant and friendly. We felt that the idea of having drinks in the lounge area with other guests and then sitting down for dinner at seven worked extremely well, meeting other guests before dinner made it feel less formal. The service from Gert and his team was always excellent as was the food.

When I asked my wife where she would like to go for her birthday dinner without hesitation she said the Hillside having been a number of times before. Again both the meal and the service were of the highest order. Gerd was his usual charming self combining friendliness with competence and so making us feel at home. We both chose the meat option and so had duck terrine followed by rabbit stuffed with prune and to complete pear and apple tart tatin all accompanied by an excellent and very good value Barolo. Then came the surprise a small birthday cake with a candle!!
A truly memorable evening which sent us home feeling truly contented - and nicely full!
