Lunch 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.

The Ochre Daily Lunch Platter $32.50pp for 2 or more people
Choose 3 quality dishes per platter from the light lunch section + our famous spiced fries + a glass of wine or beer
