New Years Eve

Join us for dinner this New Year’s Eve, and to toast the end of year, why not add some caviar & champagne?






A few things to note



Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate dietary requirements with this menu.


This menu also requires pre-payment with a 48 hour cancellation policy. The full menu price will be forfeited if cancellations are made within the 48-hour window.

Private Dining

Furnished in rich spotted gum, our private dining room, Banda closes off to the rest of the restaurant, and seats 12 for celebrations and business lunches.


The private dining room opens up onto The Terrace with a wall dedicated to wines, concealed behind a mesh curtain that separates it from the dining room. Seating 30, this area can be booked in addition to our private dining room.

Named after the group of islands which ancient seafarers frequented as part of the Sino-Indonesian-Australian route, Aru touches on early techniques – fermentation, smoking, curing, preserving and fire-licked meat, vegetables and fish.


This is a menu for getting together, for sharing, a coming together of cultures and cuisines centred round a wood-fired hearth.


Open from noon to late for snacks, cocktails, good wine and meals.
