Dinner Menu

While some restaurants create a new dish for which they become renowned, the chefs at Ochre Restaurant have created a whole new cuisine, unique in its use of Australian native foods and knowledge, that is a legendary dining experience.

Our Chefs constantly strive to develop new and exciting dishes that maximise the flavour possibilities of our amazing range of native produce, and the seasonal nature of many of our ingredients, are reflected in the regular changes that our menus undergo.
