Located on the second level of Hilton Osaka, this is a modern grill restaurant serving an expansive range of fine wines. I opted for a glass of NOA Sicilia wine recommended by an in-house sommelier. Centrum Grill & Wine also has a private room for guests looking to celebrate special occasions.

My menu included Monkfish in a charcoal emulsion served with mussels and butter sauce. It was a perfect mix of flavours, complemented by the creamy texture of the broccoli puree and earthiness from the charcoal emulsion.

The highlight of the dinner was the Shodo island olive beef, which was grilled to perfection lending a beautiful smoky taste.

I ended my meal with a chestnut mousse with “Puratos” chocolate crumble and chocolate sherbet which was quite rich in flavour.

Verdict: Our pick for a modern grill restaurant in Osaka.
