just terrible from the get go. Was meant to be a special evening for our daughter's 13th birthday but bad service, delayed and both overcooked/cold food after a 2-hour wait and to be surrounded by loud drunken old men it was nothing short of a disaster. Times like this sorry is not enough but we didn't even really receive that! A total disappoint that will see me never return there again

The ricott gnocchi was delicious. Beautiful outdoor area. But it took 1hour to receive our mains, on a weeknight. Very frustrating for "fine dining" cost.

Food, service and atmosphere was beautiful. Additional charge for sauce, sides, etc made the steak dinners quite expensive.

We enjoyed the the delicious food and in particular the great service provided by Kelly and Dylan. We were keen to try the two way fish dish that unfortunately was no longer on the menu. Kelly spoke to the chef and arranged for a similar dish to be prepared which was absolutely delicious. We had Dylan looking looking after us throughout the meal with great advice on the selection of wine and very attentive service.

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 !
