Great steak but very dry ribs that my wife could not eat. No offer for replacement or to be removed from the bill.

The food that we had was good but the communication from the staff was terrible. We ordered our main food and they came back 40minutes later to tell us they didn’t have what we wanted , not sure who was at fault but luckily we had some starters so we weren’t hungry. We ended up leaving with no main ☹️

Manager most accommodating when due to unforeseen travel schedules we had to change reservations Very helpful friendly service and light uncomplicated fare

Food was disappointing - one dish (ribs) was served with the meat cold at the centre. My steak was over cooked. Chips were too oily and over cooked. Sautéed greens were too oily and hardly any actual greens. Sticky date pudding was dry. Service was... awkward - on arrival the lady that greeted us (an older lady) had a go at my dad (whose birthday we were celebrating) for not being more energetic when he said hello. I found that strange and he was really irritated by that. As we were shown to our seats she felt it appropriate to call out to my dad “hope the night gets better”. Our night was great before our interaction with this staff member. This was a really disappointing experience, particularly given the amount of money we spent. Won’t be returning any time soon, if ever.

Way too expensive. Food was below average both quality and quantity and staff not very friendly. The price they are charging they should give extraordinary food to justify. It used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Darwin but not anymore. I will never go back there.

Enjoyable food and great service but could use a better selection of dishes other than steak and fish

Staff were amazing and friendly. The every mouthful of the food was a wonderful experience. The Moreton Bay Bug pasta is one of the best pastas I have ever had the pleasure of eating!!

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 !
