Uluru

Stunningly located close to the arts theatre in the heart of Armagh City, at the top of the marketplace hill and nestled under the Church of Ireland Cathedral, Uluru occupies a corner building that allows an unusual view down over the steep market ‘square’ to the tightly packed streets below.


There’s an an eyerie-like feeling to it and, in this unlikely place, Australian chef Dean Coppard has introduced some antipodean style to Armagh, with a menu that offers dishes such as marinated kangaroo and braised medallions of ostrich.


The dining room, which is quite small and decorated with aboriginal artwork and carvings, is ably managed by Dean’s partner Sarah, who has an extensive knowledge of the menu as well as the comprehensive wine list which features an outstanding selection of Australian wines and beers.


Uluru lays claim to being Northern Ireland’s only Australian restaurant and Dean – who is originally from Queensland - has created an adventurous menu which, with the exception of exotics, is based mainly on local produce. Named suppliers include Moyallen for meats, fish comes from Kilkeel and they grow vegetables and herbs in their own polytunnel.


While marinated kangaroo served with kumera chips and medallions of ostrich are house specialities, local game and seafood take pride of place and there is also a choice of local favourites including a variety of steak and chicken dishes; vegetarians also have a choice of three interesting dishes including Asian vegetable crepes with sweet soy and sesame dressing and served with a sweet potato purée.


Uluru which, incidentally, takes its name from the aboriginal name for the world-famous Ayer’s Rock, has earned a reputation for good food using locally sourced seasonal produce served in an informal environment at reasonable prices, notably on the lunch, early dinner menu and Sunday Super Saver menus.


Separate vegetarian menus are offered at both lunch and dinner.


Service is casual and very friendly, as befits an Australian restaurant, and this is a popular and busy spot in the evenings.
