Dining in a Hilton hotel means reserving extra room (in your tummy)
It's worth staying overnight at the Gatwick Hilton just to enjoy the food. The Hilton boasts two excellent restaurants, two bars serving food and a Costa coffee shop offering cakes and hot drinks. For a really great start to your holiday, spend your evening at Amy's or the Garden Restaurant - and be sure not to miss the Hilton's world-class breakfast buffet before you fly.
The Garden Restaurant
- Breakfast: 6am to 10.30am
- Lunch: noon to 2.30pm
- Dinner: 6pm to 10.30pm
- Breakfast: 6am to 11am
- Dinner: 5.30pm to 10.30pm Menu
The light and spacious Garden Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner every day - and you can save money on both when you book through Holiday Extras. Plus, children under 10 eat free - from a special children's menu created by child nutrition expert Annabel Karmel - as long as they're with an adult who is having a meal too.
Breakfast - However you like to start the day, the Garden Restaurant's huge, delicious buffet breakfast will hit the spot. There's English breakfast, cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruit salads, a dozen different types of cereal and toast – and we've never seen so many pots of jam in one place! Breakfast starts at 6am, so linger over fresh tea, coffee and fruit juices if you have the time, or be in and out in under 10 minutes if you're in a hurry for an early flight (we've done it, it's really that quick). You couldn't hope for a better start to your day - or to your holiday.
The staff at the Hilton were very friendly, made us very welcome from arrival at reception to the restaurant. Choice of evening meal very good. Pleased to say could not fault anything. A very good start to a very good holiday.Mr Wheeler, 20 Mar, 2011 (5 out of 5)
Dinner - If you're looking for plenty of choice, dinner at the Garden Restaurant won't disappoint. We recommend the buffet, a nightly banquet of more than 100 dishes, from seafood starters and soup of the day to fresh salads and roasts from the carvery - plus a whole counter of delicious desserts and the hotel's extensive drinks menu. You could eat at the Garden Restaurant buffet every night for a month and never have the same meal twice. And best of all, you can book it through Holiday Extras for just £15 per person, compared with the hotel's normal price of £25. Shame you're only there for one night!
Alternatively, try the Garden Restaurant's a la carte menu, which features the Hilton burger, flash-fried tiger prawns and succulent Scottish steaks, as well as four different curries, pizzas and pasta dishes.
- 6pm to 11pm every day
The elegant, intimate Amy's Restaurant serves a la carte cuisine every evening. If you want to spend the night before you fly enjoying a truly world-class meal, book a table at Amy's now. Classic dishes include butternut squash lasagne, prawn and avocado gazpacho and prime steaks. Enjoy the food, enjoy the extensive wine list or just enjoy the company of your travelling companions in the quietly luxurious surroundings.
Amy's Restaurant is next to Amy's Bar, which is open until 2am every night, giving you plenty of time to finish your drinks or relax with a cocktail after dinner.
Snacks and other dining options
Both Amy's Bar in the main atrium and Charlie Fry's Sports Bar serve bar meals, with Amy's offering excellent light lunches, including Cajun chicken salads, hot sandwiches and plenty of vegetarian options.
