I felt like trying something new for dinner last night and Li’l Darlin came to mind. Every time I drive past it is always buzzing and filled with people, so I figured it must be pretty good.
The host was waiting at the door. As soon as we walked in, he took us to a table, gave us our menus and informed us that there is no table service, all orders have to be placed at the bar.
The Menu was simple. It is filled with gourmet pizza and tapas
We Ate Crispy kipfler potatoes with mayo ($5.90) pictured below, Grilled Pancetta and gorgonzola pizza ($10.90),Crispy Peking Duck pizza ($11.90) and Smoked Salon and Dill pizza ($10.90)
We Drunk lemonade and Coke Zero. Li’l Darlin offers a huge drinks list consisting of beers, cocktails, Icyee cocktails and wine
When I Checked In On Facebook so many of my friends had already been here. For a relatively new restaurant, I was impressed that over 1,000 people have checked in on Facebook. Click here to visit the Li’l Darlin Facebook page
The decor From the bespoke Hummingbird wallpaper to its darling little scented tea lights and the vines hanging from the roof lights, Li’l Darlin offers the perfect setting for any occasion. Inside Li’l Darlin there is a long communal table in the middle. The edges of Li’l Darlin are surrounded with bar tables and stools. Li’l Darlin is dimly lit and pumps out chill out music.
