About City Cafe Bar & Grill - Hilton
Fantastic Dinner, Hosts and Venue
Jamie and I felt we received royal treatment, all the staff were amazing, food was great and setting could not be faulted in the slightest.
Fabulous Food and Friendly staff
We went here for dinner before going to the Hydro due to its location so didn't expect much, however all 6 of us had various starters and mains (too full for puddings). Will definitely go back as food was first class and the staff were friendly.
