The Best Eateries in Orange
Orange has many wonderful things to offer, and our eateries are no exception! To prevent you from getting food envy, we have highlighted a few of our Orange eateries so you don't miss out.
Any good holiday should involve a sprinkling of indulgence, and what better way to indulge than by trying out some of the best restaurants in Orange?! We’re known for our premium produce, and it doesn’t get much fresher than enjoying fresh food mere minutes away from where it was grown. And while some of Orange’s best eateries are fine dining restaurants, there are equally incredible casual dining options too. So whether you’re seeking a hearty breakfast, a long lunch in the sun or a sensational seven course meal, Orange has an eatery for every occasion.
Charred Kitchen and Bar
Orange might not immediately pop to mind when you think of fine dining, but the Australia’s best restaurants aren’t just limited to its capital cities. Charred Kitchen and Bar is the perfect example of this. Located just off Bathurst Road, Charred Kitchen and Bar is in a convenient location, easily accessible for most people who have accommodation in Orange. The menu showcases the local produce in the best possible way, cooked in a wood-fired oven for that deliciously distinctive charred flavour. The seven-course tasting menu is a big hit with locals and visitors, with wine matchings available too. A meal at Charred Kitchen and Bar is one you will never forget!
Birdie Noshery and Drinking
Birdie Noshery is a great spot for a meal at any time of day, but if we were to pick one meal to have here it would have to be breakfast. There is a selection of mouth-watering pastries and sweet treats, and all your trusty savoury favourites on the menu as well – with plenty of options for vegetarians. Our recommendation? The sweet corn, polenta, parmesan and zucchini fritters with avocado, roasted tomato, aioli, shaved fennel and rocket salad. The all-day offerings are just as delicious, designed to be shared with friends over a nice glass of wine or a steaming pot of tea. Perch up at the big brass bar and enjoy friendly service with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
It would be remiss of us not to include a winery on our list of the best restaurants in Orange, and Sister’s Rock Restaurant gets our vote. Located at Borrodell Estate, just across the lake from our Orange luxury accommodation, Sister’s Rock restaurant is the epitome of an eatery with a view. Sit out on the deck and enjoy a sumptuous meal while overlooking the scenic pinot noir block and the picturesque Towac Valley. Sister’s Rock offers three-course or four-course long lunches from Thursday to Sunday and is in hot demand, so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Sweet Sour Salt
Many of Orange’s best restaurants specialise in modern European fare, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other cuisines to be found! Sweet Sour Salt is arguably Orange’s best Asian restaurant, influenced by flavours and dishes from a range of different countries and regions. There are noodle dishes, curries, wontons and more. And while the menu is relatively small, everything they do here is done well. Sweet Sour Salt is located just off the main street, so it’s a nice walk if you’re staying in town or about a ten-minute drive from our luxury accommodation in Orange.
Some might say we saved the best until last, and Lolli Redini is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Orange. Established in 2001, the accolades speak for themselves; Lolli Redini has been awarded an impressive 17 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide Awards, one Chefs Hat rating and one wine glass rating. And if you fancy yourself a bit of a foodie, Lolli is the place to go. The menu features mouth-watering dishes like local venison crusted in juniper and pepper and slow cooked, twice cooked local beef brisket. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to good restaurants in Orange, but a special meal at Lolli Redini is certainly a must-do!

Excellent accommodation. The rooms are very well appointed and private. We loved the bath. And the food on arrival is a really nice touch. If/when we come back to Orange we'd definitely stay again.
