Located in the historic grounds of Admiralty House, directly on the Darwin Esplanade, is the award-winning Char Restaurant.

Established in 2006 Char restaurant is the go-to for locals and visitors looking for a special night out. The steakhouse prides itself on sourcing its produce from the best feedlots in the region where only the best makes the cut. Catering for all tastebuds, Char aims to offer nothing less than a memorable experience ensuring each one of our guests leave our restaurant with an empty plate and a satisfied stomach. Whether it be basking outside under the sparkling fairy lights, enjoying a wine with friends, or indulging in a premium cut of steak whilst celebrating that special occasion with family and friends.

Admiralty House is 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 building and gardens were declared a heritage place under the Heritage Conservation Act. Now restored and renovated back to its classic tropical charm.
