Description: Elegant | Exceptional | Equisite You will find EVOO nestled on the top floor of SKYCITY Darwin offering stunning, sweeping views of the Darwin CBD and Arafura Sea. The menu incorporates fresh, local and seasonal produce year round to ensure the highest quality and taste. Combining Australian and Mediterranean flavours EVOO creates a contemporary signature style that is sure to leave an impression. For the ultimate taste of EVOO we highly recommend indulging on the degustation menu which inlcudes accompanying premium wines. SKYCITY Darwin is also proud to announce that EVOO has been awarded a prestigious Age Good Food Guide ‘Chef Hat’. The annual and highly sought after awards saw Australia’s top restaurants considered for the list of 2016’s ‘hatted’ restaurants, among which was EVOO, the only Judges Choice winner in the Northern Territory.

“What a Joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The drab casino is like a dreery pub pokies joint in a tray deck clad shed with a so called 'fine dinning' restaurant 'EVOO' that has the worst Service & Administration, literally experinenced in the entire world + average food to boot.
Freinds who own and run a restaurant wanted to try Evoo on our way through darwin for couple days going to Singapore. As a Darwin regular I warned them off it from previous bad experiences but they insisted as it was supposedly won some awards in Darwin, so through would give them a last chance.
Made a booking over phone day before attending for 3 people.
Called a second time the same day and altered the booking to 5 people.
When we arrived at 8pm for our booking, the girl blankly informs us no record of our booking, will have to go somewhere else. Um, we even made more then one phone call to confirm this, are you serious...
So no help, apologies or recomendations, just rude uncaring service without any reaction to offer assistance, set up a new table. What a joke.
This was another chance I gave Evoo after having the worst service experience ive ever had as a frequent traveller and diner all over the world and they literally screwed us over again. The food was average last time and overpriced with no worthy service or atmosphere experience of its advertisments.
I know they get by on one off unknowing tourists but believe me, if anyone is visiting here DO NOT GO TO EVOO, everyone else in Australia does it better.
If they had any idea they would step out of their big tray deck shed and observe how the rest of the worlds hospitality businesses do it.... you cant get close so why bother opening the doors at all
(I know: to catch the one off visiting suckers every week because who cares, lets get their money, they wont be around like locals to tell everyone not to come ?)
(The gold plate' awards have to be a joke too for this place even to get a mention, must be a typical supplier awards system to pat the back of your pals who buy stuff from you - has judges even been their?)

“Not as good as we had hoped”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had heard a lot about Evoo and that it had won plenty of awards so we went there for a special visit with our visiting family. Service was okay .. food wasn't really up to par (considering the awards that it has won).

We had the a la carte menu. The asparagus tempura was a couple of limp green sticks. The main meal of Roasted Clare Valley Beef Fillet ($45) was a winner however the $36 jewfish that "floated in a pea soup" was tasteless and such a weird combination. The yummy crepes and chocolate desserts certainly took some beating - they were delicious (but you would have hoped so at $20 each)!

Overall, we were expecting a lot more and can't say that it was value for money .. sadly!

“Never disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We have dined at this restaurant many times. The staff are happy to really look after you and the quality of the food is very good. Whilst things have changed in the restaurant over the last few years (less staff & a smaller men) we still find that our dining experience is all that we expect from Evoo. With a smaller menu we still have no problem in finding something interesting on the menu to suit both of us. We will continue to visit Evoo each time we are in Darwin.

“Five out of eight meals correct is NOT good enough!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We dined here in early December. After waiting a considerable time for service, orders took too long to arrive...but only five of eight were served. Then one was given to the wrong person. I was offered the already partly eaten meal that was with the wrong person! We were then told the remaining three meals would be a 'few minutes". Two of the remaining meals were served. Absolutely unacceptable. I was finally served my meal two hours after arriving and after everyone at the table had finished theirs!
The meal was mediocre and the 'service', atrocious. This was the worst dining experience I have encountered in an establishment calling itself a restaurant. NEVER again will I go there and never will I recommend it! It makes a mockery of Golden Plate Awards!
