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.
