Striped wallpaper, ornate mirrors and chandeliers remind me of Paris. As does the sweet smelling croissants and the rich smooth coffee. Pearl Restaurant is a little slice of Europe.
Pearl opened a few weeks ago and is now planning to add dinners to their repertoire. At an inaugural degustation dinner last Saturday here’s a taste – slices of salmon, marinated in Bombay gin and served with goat’s cheese arancini balls. It was sensational.
Over the past few months Darwin’s restaurant scene has grown, becoming even more culturally diverse. The Waterfront boasts a new Vietnamese restaurant called Chow and further along the wharf there’s the Greek restaurant, Antiquity. Another worthy of mention is Pavonia Place. This Nightcliff restaurant is top class. It has great and friendly service and consistently delicious food. We went there a couple of weeks ago and it was heaving with people, a perfect testament to the reputation they have gained in such a short space of time.
According to Trip Advisor there are now over 200 restaurants in Darwin featuring cuisines from all around the world.
