Blackwattle Grill

Every hotel needs its signature restaurant and ours is the Blackwattle Grill. This restaurant has an urban-bistro aesthetic.

With it’s bentwood chairs, industrial-style lighting, and sleek darkly tiled open kitchen, the Blackwattle Grill will lift the quality of airport precinct dining choices to a whole new level. This will be a showcase of Australian produce and flavours, from our world-famous Black Angus Beef, to mouth-watering Sydney rock oysters.

And we’ll be using a wood-fired grill to seal in those quintessential Australian flavours.

Those guests who would prefer a lighter meal can choose from the more casual side of the menu, featuring options such as Gourmet Pizza or Angus Beef Burger, prepared by our chefs with all the attention our guests would expect.

Our Restaurant staff may suggest a fine Australian drop from our glass-fronted wine wall, to complement the meal. Maybe a Yarra Valley pinot, aged Hunter Semillon, or Margaret River chardonnay
