Li’l Darlin Randwick
The new darling in Randwick
If you’ve ever visited Li’l Darlin at Darlinghurst, you’ll know the venue is all about good service, good atmosphere, good drinks and good food. Deciding to share the love, Li’l Darling recently opened a second set of doors, this time in the heart of Randwick’s The Spot. Fans of the original will not be disappointed; this place offers friendly service, delicious drinks and a tapas menu to make your mouth water.
The atmosphere of Li’l Darlin definitely lives up to its name, with cascading vines and fairy lights adorning the walls, you immediately feel at home in this cozy room.
Li’l Darlin has brought its famous cocktail list to its new address, with modern twists on old classics making up the majority. The Fairy Floss Martini (lovingly garnished with a cloud of fairy floss) is a definite must and the Lil Hubba is ideal for those with less of a sweet tooth. There’s also a range of frozen cocktails on offer, but banish thoughts of tacky pre-mixes from your mind, these babies are made fresh with liqueurs and house syrups and are well worth the brain freeze.
The tapas menu offers further delights, the pizzas have a well-earned reputation, with offerings including Crispy Peking Duck, Grilled Chorizo & Buffalo Mozzarella and Mexico Nacho Pizza, among more classic toppings, there is bound to be something for everyone, But if pizza isn’t your thing, Li’l Darlin has plenty of bar food standards on the menu, including Salt & Pepper Calamari, Chicken Liver Parfait and Roasted Field Mushrooms with Goat’s Curd and Lemon & Chive Mousse. On the dessert front, the Oven Baked Brownie Swirls are possibly the most delicious things you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating.
The beauty of Li’l Darlin is that it lives up to its reputation on all fronts. From the moment you walk through the doors, the staff are friendly and attentive, the atmosphere warm and welcoming. In addition to all this, Li’l Darlin offers weeknight specials. With so much going for it, you’ve got no reason for not checking out the new Li’l Darlin.
