Stumbled on this gem. Rolled into town late, everything fully booked (Jazz weekend). Staff welcomed, no imposition. Had a drink at the bar while our table was prepared. Food was amazing, so fresh. Loved the ambience on this hot balmy night!

Beautiful setting, intimate atmosphere, lovely service but for us thats about where it ended. The food was good but considering the amount you pay for this 'fine dining' experience I did expect it to be a little better? All in all this would have been a lot nicer evening if after our entree we didn't have to wait an hour... More

As a travelling Businessman, i stumbled across this one last year. I'm certainly glad i did. The service provided was top notch. So much attention to detail went into making my dining experience an absolute pleasure. I frequent the place bi-monthly, and have not been let down at any time. The menu is quite compact, but varied. I highly recommend... More

The service provided by the hosts, Ali and his partner Michelle is always friendly and attentive, and I always feel very welcome. Their attention to the diner is fantastic, the menu is always changing... More

I've eaten here several times over the last 12 months and have never had a bad experience, the place is brilliant. The service is excellent, the food is amazing & the wine list extensive. They also cater for children and have a broad menu that has provided everyone I've been there with something they have loved.

We were blown away by the incredible atmosphere at Che'Ali which was really created by some of the best mood lighting I have ever seen. The chef was able to cater to my request, and the sauce on the steak was divine. The staff were efficient and aware of the patron's needs, especially the Maitre de. I would highly recommend... More

Classy place for Mildura! Attentive staff, great wines and simply delightful food. Modern menu with a middle eastern touch, tender steaks and mouthwatering dessert. We will be back!
