Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a lovely venue for an evening with friends, full of laughs and fantastic food. The tasting menu was a heavenly surprise at every turn, the delicate nest of a porcini custard egg with added local truffle was spectacular. Every dish was artistically presented which...added to the mystery of flavours to be indulged. Loved it and will definitely be returning.More

From the moment we entered we were made to feel welcome. First up, a cocktail; for me a delish vegan pisco sour. Then the dishes started coming. Our very friendly waitress explained each course - vegan for me, regular for my partner. Perfectly balanced flavours...and textures. Each mouthful was heaven. The corn "gnudi" dish was exquisite. Five courses, with three different plates for the first, was just the right amount of food. The wine list is incredible, so don't overdo it in the vineyards! This was definitely one of the best meals I have ever eaten and worth every penny. Deserves a hat or two.More

The originality of the combinations are a taste sensation. Each share plate developed the experience, wanting and craving for the next.

We were planning to return before we even left the restaurant! What a journey for the senses.........we loved every course and eagerly anticipated the next. Each serving was immaculately constructed and every tiny detail was carefully thought out. Wonderful experience, culinary delight! The service was...awesome too. Highly recommended. I expect you'll see us again soon...More

4 course tasting menu which is absolutely superb in my opinion. Thoroughly inventive, imaginative, beautifully presented delicious dishes.. First course was 3 appetisers which were wonderfully tasty. A spanner crab ravioli, perfect gnochi, and a splendid charred beef dish. Finally a mandarin sorbet palett cleanser...served in the frozen shell of a hollowed out mandarin. Desert was an extra if you desired which we did and was equally as good as all that came before. Huge wine selection from local wineries and international wine producers. Served by Brynn who was exceptional. 10/10 Absolutely a must if visiting Orange. Perhaps not for you if you want massive servings, but perfect for us.More

The food and wine matching was the best I have ever had, The food was exceptional, with multiple tasting plates of exquisite flavours. We chose the wine tastings to accompany the dishes and I have never experience such an amazing connection between the food and...wine. A must for anyone who enjoys their food or wants to experience and understand why you match each.More

We enjoyed the 4 course degustation & the recommended accompanying wines. We also particularly enjoyed the “mushroom “ desert. Staff were friendly & informative & nothing was a trouble to them. The only negative was a very loud patron seated behind us. At times it...made conversation difficult.More

Four of us really enjoyed our dinner. The food was delicious and the wine list extensive, but what we most enjoyed was the relaxed atmosphere that went along with terrific food. Whilst the menu is set, with notice, Charred can readily accommodate pescatarians, vegetarinas and...vegans and other individual dislikes. Just a delightful night out in a surprising restaurant. I would return in a heart beat if I lived in Orange.More

There are many fine restaurants in Orange which is quite a wine and food hub these days. But this place is the best of the best. The wine list is one of the most amazing I have seen anywhere and there is also a really...interesting list of Mocktails based on the Lyres brand. The degustation menu was very interesting and there was not a dish we didn’t like. Orange is lucky to have such a high calibre place.More

Fantastic menu. The combination of tastes throughout the seven course meal meant that each mouthful was an absolute delight. The atmosphere was relaxed - you were immediately welcomed and felt welcome. Tables were well distanced so that you didn’t feel part of other diners’ conversations....Every staff member with whom we interacted was knowledgeable, courteous and was genuinely keen to ensure that we enjoyed our meal. In every aspect, this is without doubt the best dining experience we have ever enjoyed. We look forward to making lunch at Charred a regular seasonal occasion.More

From the moment my wife and I were greeted at the door, we knew we were in for a very special experience. The service was attentive without being hovered over, the food was exceptional with portion sizes perfect for us, where the focus is on...quality local produce. The wine list is the best I have ever seen and is reflective of the whole approach of this restaurant. Highly recommend Charred, you will not be disappointed.More

Yes the restaurant is open but restricted numbers. I think they just changed to a set menu. Friday’s are booked out for ages I think. We took a 5.30 - you have until 8.30 to finish- booking for Thursday. You do it online... More
