Top 5 NT luxury dining spots

Sometimes a spot of luxury is a holiday must. While the Northern Territory is renowned for its scenery, outback hospitality, history and adventure it also has an inventive fine dining scene. Here are five of our top NT luxury dining spots.


  1. Evoo, Darwin

Evoo has been consistently named one of the top restaurants in the Northern Territory, and for good reason. Nestled on the top floor of Skycity in Darwin, Evoo’s signature chic but cosy vibe will instantly surprise and delight you.

Named after the international symbol of decadence and flavour, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Evoo’s menu blends classic Australian and Mediterranean flavours, creating a contemporary fusion that is matched perfectly with their accompanying wine list.

Open Wednesday – Saturday, 6pm – 10pm.



  1. Char, Darwin

Char Darwin delivers an exceptional dining experience in a beautiful heritage listed building. Offering the best of local produce, Char consistently provides top tier food, served simply and elegantly. Staffed by a dedicated and attentive team, Char is headed up by restaurateur John Kilroy, a nationally-recognised beef judge.

Char’s recent addition of jellyfish to the menu has been successful with the Darwin food community, and is definitely worth a taste. With beautiful ambiance, Char provides both indoor and outdoor seating for any fine dining occasion.

Open Monday, Tuesday, Saturday, Sunday 6pm – 11pm and Wednesday – Friday 12pm – 11pm.


  1. Hanuman, Darwin

Our top pick for Asian food in the NT, Hanuman represents a lifelong commitment to exceptional Asian cuisine. The Darwin flagship was opened in 1992, and has been providing an excellent standard of food and service ever since. Boasting an elegant and relaxed atmosphere, Hanuman’s eclectic menu suits any season.

The beautiful décor compliments the food perfectly, providing an authentic, delicious Asian experience.
