The only issue I had the entire night was the heat inside, which is understandable in Darwin during the wet season. Other than that we loved everything and would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed the food and the service was good. Didn't appreciate being charged $10 for water.
Many thanks for taking the time to review our Restaurant and we apologize for not making it clear that we charge for bottled, imported water. Antipodes Mineral water - sourced from high quality NZ aquifer, is considered one of the world's purest waters and we sell it in 1 liter bottles as do many 5 star restaurants. You should have also been given the choice for local tap water and again, I apologize if this was not clear to you. We are however delighted that you enjoyed the food and the service and we look forward to looking after you when next you dine with us at Char Restaurant Darwin. Kind regards, Michael

Beautiful location for a sunset but the food was overpriced and very average. Even the waiter was laughing at our $199 bill for one starter 2 mains one dessert a half bottle of wine and a cocktail.

Each person enjoyed their meal flavours but really the portion sizes could be a bit bigger. The ravioli was quite small in serving. The steak with lentils needed something like a bed of mash. The risotto could have been slightly larger. Steaks were really nice but the potato bake lacked richness. Can’t believe the banoffee pie is off the menu, it was the main reason I chose the restaurant for my birthday dinner. Sticky date just could not match it.

About Char Restaurant

Nice to meat you... Be it an intimate meal for two, a formal business lunch or a night out with friends, Char Restaurant is the place to be seen. This unique and contemporary venue is truly one of a kind, delivering fresh local produce and innovative cuisine coupled with exceptional service and style. The restaurant itself is set in the grounds of the beautiful Admiralty House making it a stunning tranquil location for all occasions. The obvious thing to order is steak or seafood - both are prepared and presented to absolute perfection - chosen by esteemed restaurateur John Kilroy. Although the a la carte menu is very enticing desserts are also worth saving room for… there’s chocolate indulgence, creme brulee, banoffee pie plus a selection of cheeses! Best dish: steak of course !
