Went here for an anniversary dinner.
It took half an hour for the waitress to come and acknowledge us at our table and she then proceeded to tell us four things not available on the menu. We reconsidered what we were going to order and after another twenty minutes our meal order and drink order was taken.
It took an hour to get our first drink!!
Two and a half hours later we had finished entree and main- didn't bother to go near dessert because we would have been there for another hour.
Portion sizes are very small.
Overall the food lacked flavour and I could do a better job cooking at home. My partner ordered the crispy skin pork belly - the 'crispy skin' was nowhere to be found.
I do not mind paying money for great food, however Char's quality of food is evidently lacking and the service leaves a lot to be desired.
Many other restaurants in Darwin that trump this place.
Will actually never dine there again.
Improve your staff and improve your food - otherwise don't sell yourself as a fine dining experience. Char is on a par to the likes of hogs breath or outback jacks - with worse service and triple the price. What a joke!!!!
