Special occassion, celebrating with friends and we couldnt of asked for anything more. The food was so good that my mouth is watering thinking about what Im going to say. Deep fried mussels, salmon beautifully presented. Suckling pig is a dish to come here for. Crackling that is delicate (yep) crisp and out of this world. They even make brocoli a side to savour. Afflagato with myrtle is good. The banana based desert is the one to go for. Service hit the balance with being personal, effecient, unobtrousive and added to the experience. Large number of wines available by the glass. Expensive but totally recommend.

Arrived earlier than reservation time and seated quickly. Fresh, interesting food with well matched varied wines for degustation. Not the cheapest restaurant around, but would certainly return. Sat on heated enclosed balcony in winter. Noticed they turned off air con when icicles appeared on nostrils. Hadn't been given bill, so not lingering. Recommend when charging hundreds of dollars to spend few cents on heating.

We had the most marvellous experience last Thursday night. We have eaten at Pilu a few times and am very pleased to report that our last experience was excellent. On previous occasions I have found the staff a bit pushy and overbearing for a good restaurant but am pleased to say they have lifter their game. All the wait staff were terrific and food sublime. We did splurge and had the 7 course degustation but it was worth every cent. Thank you. Our last best meal was at the ledbury in London and this almost matched it. !!

Not sure what happened but not what it used to be. My rating says it all - average & low value for money. But what a beautiful location!
