Wharf One – Worth leaving the house for!

Wharf One – Worth leaving the house for!

Wharf One embodies the relaxed, casual atmosphere of Darwin’s beautiful Waterfront precinct, offering quality local food and an atmosphere worth leaving the house for.

It opened in 2015 following the success of sister restaurant Il Lido, which opened in 2010 as one of the first eateries on the Waterfront. Wharf One excels in serving high-class food sourced locally as much as possible. “It’s all about sharing locally grown and prepared seasonal ingredients,” says General Manager Pina Sommerville.

Wharf One features a wood grill, which allows it to serve smoky flavoured NT chargrilled squid, succulent lamb cutlets and Australian wagyu beef with a marble score of over nine. Only 0.000000001 percent of wagyu in the world has a marble score above seven, making the restaurant extraordinarily special.“The Northern Territory has some of the best local produce and ingredients,” says Pina. “And the wood grill showcases the chef’s commitment to enriching this local goodness.” Wharf One’s views are not to be scoffed at. Overlooking the serene Darwin Harbour, the restaurant provides views framed by extravagant floor-to-ceiling windows and an atmosphere that spills out on to the open-air terrace for guests to dine in the tropical sea breeze. The restaurant provides the perfect spot for group bookings and functions, to make your time out a little more special.

“Wharf One Food and Wine specialises in group bookings of all sizes, with a menu that is largely designed to be shared,” says Pina. Wharf One’s sister restaurant, Il Lido, is located close-by at the Waterfront. It’s all about that Territory patented relaxed environment.“With comfortable booths, couches and long bench tables, we provide the perfect, relaxed venue for casual get-togethers” she says. Il Lido offers house-made pizzas, thick burgers, classic fish and chips and ribs to spare.

Featuring a splendid view overlooking the waterfront lagoon, it is all about providing a perfect night out.“We provide the perfect, relaxed venue for casual get-togethers, post-swim refuels and drinks that taste of summer year-round,” says Pina. “Enjoy the casual dining, relax with a cocktail and friend.” Il Lido is popular for any good night out, from birthdays to hen nights to engagement parties. Its friendly atmosphere and mouthwatering menu, featuring a good few party platters, keeps guests happy long into the night. Both Wharf One Food and Wine and Il Lido Barpizza are showing off the Territory’s uniquely sophisticated yet casual atmosphere – giving people an opportunity for a night to remember.
