Darling Pavilion, where Mediterranean elegance and alfresco charm meet in the heart of the Darling Quarter.
As spring blankets the city with its warm embrace, we yearn for the perfect place to bask in the sun with a cocktail in hand, and enjoy the season’s vibrant flavours. Say hello to Darling Pavilion, the latest addition to Darling Quarter, brought to you by Universal Hotels. Nestled right in Tumbalong Park, it’s where good vibes and great tastes collide.
The easy-going establishment marries the charm of a pavilion-style pub with a touch of Mediterranean elegance. The sunlit space invites you to experience genuine alfresco dining, boasting white-washed walls, lounge booths, an open kitchen, and a remarkable 20-meter stone bar that greets you at the door. The stylish and soothing setting is ideal for leisurely catch-ups, family gatherings, or a spirited spot to rally behind your favourite sports team.
Head chef, Kyle Quy created the relaxed menu, working alongside Group Executive Chef, Dean Sammut and stands as a testament to their dedication to cater to all. For those seeking a true Mediterranean experience, the generously portioned starters are the ideal choice for communal dining. Delve into the rich flavours of Char-grilled Prawns, with whipped feta and a vibrant tomato and cucumber salsa, or the delicate Seared Scallops complimented with pea, Jamon and garlic crumb. Both these dishes instantly transported us to the carefree days of a European summer.
If you’re in the mood for something heartier to share, the Whole Roasted Shoulder of Lamb or Market Fish beckons. The menu also features the beloved pub classics that hold a special place in our hearts alongside an array of pizza and pasta dishes. Much like the food menu, there is an extensive drink list for you to peruse, from hand-crafted cocktails to classic beers and wines.
The Darling Pavilion stands as the perfect complement to the dynamic district of the Darling Quarter, providing a welcoming ambience for all occasions. Open from 10am to 3am daily, at 1 Harbour St, Sydney 2000. Find out more here.
