Not to be confused with Hilton Adelaide in the Adelaide CBD which is part of a worldwide chain of hotels, The Hilton Hotel along South Road offers both familiar pub-style dishes and more "upmarket" dishes that vary with the seasons. We chose to dine at Mybar which serves as the casual, all-day dining option at the hotel.
Their Roast Cauliflower Steak is big enough for it to easily be shared. The cauliflower still had a bit of firmness to it and was roasted sufficiently to give a hint of charred flavour. The accompanying carrot and almond hummus were good partners to the cauliflower and preserved lemon added a touch of tanginess. Completing the dish was hazelnuts for crunch and mint to impart a hint of refreshing flavour.

The barramundi in the Humpty Doo Barramundi was cooked just right with the crisp skin contrasting well with the flesh. However, we thought the skin was a bit too salty for our tastes. Served with the barramundi were asparagus, green beans and snow peas that were of vibrant green, and carrot cream whose slightly sweet flavour complemented the barramundi well. A lemon wedge came with the dish to provide a hint of sourness.

Their Herb & Garlic Focaccia was prepared differently from the garlic bread we have eaten at similar places. It consisted of two large chunks of focaccia rather than smaller slices. It was toasted to an appropriate degree and there was sufficient garlic butter to make eating it a satisfying experience. Those that like cheese can choose to add some for an extra cost.

Customers that visit the hotel on certain days can enjoy various deals such as a $15 Fish Basket on Fridays and $15 Vegan Meals on Wednesdays. Parking is not an issue with the hotel's carpark offering ample off-street parking.
