A visit to Orange for many means a visit to Lolli’s – for good reason. The multi-hatted restaurant founded in 2001 by Simonn Hawke is still going strong thanks to its consistently excellent food game and professional but warm service.
Lolli’s is a ‘special occasion’ venue, and with its starched tablecloths, showcase blooms and fine art, it feels decadent from start to finish, without being too prim. With a commitment to local produce, the seasonal menu has the odd French and Italian twist, while the curated wine list brims with classic and emerging local and global drops. Hint: The twice-baked Heidi Gruyere cheese soufflé has never been dropped from the menu for fear of a revolt of the dining public. Book ahead.
