Great service once seated - service at bar was slow and queues were forming and only one waiter available who spent far too long with one customer At table service was exceptional and food was excellent as was the wine

Great food and service - one of the best steaks I have ever had - but eye-wateringly expensive!! I'd pay half this price for a similar experience in the UK!

The best 'Darwin' experience, wonderful food wine and service, dining in a tropical garden with original architecture subtely modernised.

Such a disappointment!!! After great experiences at Char in the past our party of 4 were all unhappy with our meals. Dishes were not as described on the menu - the bug tail pasta (ordered by 3 of us) was just awful, and at nearly $50 a plate we certainly expected something special. Far from it - packet pasta, baby spinach (no fennel or herbs as stated on menu), tiny over cooked bugs, tasteless sauce. The portion size on the gold band snapper was so tiny it was rediculous. None of us enjoyed our meal. The restaurant looks the part but simply does not deliver at a premium price point. Total rip off, never going back!!

One steak was served the exact opposite to the order One steak was too tough to cut with a steak knife Our bill included a charge for menu change, it was quickly cancelled. If every bill gets this charge it amounts to alot of money

I thought the place was good for a place though that is meant to be the best steak in the territory I ordered medium rare and got medium well !! They were busy so could not be bothered sending back

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 !
