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

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 food was delicious and interesting and packed full of fresh flavours. Great vegetarian menu is available if you ask for it. Also a great fish menu with unique flavours. Recommend the oven baked fish dish and the fish tacos. The service was excellent and friendly. Beautiful view onto lit up trees and not to noisy inside despite being busy.
Thanks for the review Esther. Hope to see you again on your next visit.

Food is great as always. The waitress messed up our steaks and swapped the wagyu and sirloin over. Noticed half way through. Apart from that excellent place to go!

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 !
