Char Restaurant at Admiralty

Restaurant and Cafe

Offering some of the best fresh local produce, international and local wines married with innovative cuisine and exceptional service, Char Restaurant at Admiralty is a dining must when in Darwin city. Superbly located on The Esplanade overlooking Darwin Harbour, enjoy tropical al fresco dining as the sea breezes gently envelope the patio. The restaurant is divided into three unique styles of service – formal, informal and ‘The Darwin Club’, which is suitable for group bookings. The decor is a combination of old world charm and functional modern chic, providing a relaxed and stylish ambience.

The restaurant is housed in Admiralty House, a heritage-listed building which was built in 1937 and was almost a sole survivor after the destruction of Cyclone Tracy in 1974. In 1993, the buildings and gardens were declared a heritage place under the Heritage Conservation Act. Now restored and renovated back to its classic tropical charm.

Like most restaurants in Australia Char @ Admiralty suspended its operations on Monday 2nd March, 2020 due to the effects of the global pandemic. We look forward to bringing news of our re-opening when time and the situations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic permits.
