Hilli Restaurant & Café Claimed


Indulge in the Norfolk Charm and Irresistible Flavors of Hilli Restaurant and Café

Nestled amidst the tranquil beauty of Norfolk Island, where time seems to slow down, there’s a place that encapsulates the very essence of relaxation and culinary delight. In the unique Norfolk language, ‘hilli’ translates to a drowsy, lazy feeling, the kind that sweeps over you after savoring a sumptuous meal. It’s the contentment that follows a heavenly food coma, and that is exactly the kind of satisfaction you can expect from a dining experience at the Hilli Restaurant and Café.

An Epicurean Journey for All Senses

At Hilli, the culinary journey begins with the very first bite. Order a serving of scones, meticulously paired with jam and cream, and enjoy them alongside a steaming hot cup of Devonshire tea, all while basking in the serene views of the lush gardens. It’s an experience that appeals to the senses – the aroma of freshly baked scones, the vibrant colors of the garden, and the soothing warmth of your tea.

For those who appreciate the ocean’s bounty, a return visit for dinner promises a feast of Norfolk Island’s renowned seafood. Don’t miss the salt and pepper calamari or the seafood crepe. The latter features succulent prawns, tender calamari, and local trumpeter fish bound in a seasoned Mornay sauce, all enveloped in a delicate French crepe. Each bite tells a story of the island’s coastal treasures, expertly prepared to perfection.

Such a Special Day

The staff at Hilli’s made our 25th Wedding Anniversary so very special with rose petals sprinkled on our table, a sign wishing us a Happy Anniversary as well as ” Happy Anniversary” written in chocolate around our desert. I had the Seafood Crepe for lunch which was to die for ..it was one of the loveliest tasting meals I had ever had !! The Margarita was pretty tasty too ! In fact we enjoyed ourselves so much we came back for dinner the night before we left so hubby could try the Crepe too ..he totally agreed with me !!! We highly recommend Hilli’s for any meal!
