A Coastal New England Culinary Adventure

The Relais & Chateaux restaurant, known in its original incarnation as The Dining Room at Castle Hill, offers a six-course tasting menu with imaginative dishes utilizing the local bounty of produce, seafood, and artisanal producers. Aurelia’s dining rooms overlook Narragansett Bay in all its raw beauty. As the bay’s seascape and surrounding landscape change subtly with the seasons, so does Aurelia’s menu.

The Lawn

For generations, the quintessential Newport seaside experience. Settle into an Adirondack chair and soak in the sun, a cocktail or two, and the parade of cruisers, racers, daysailers, and ocean-going marine craft sailing up and down Narragansett Bay past Castle Hill. Chairs are first-come, first-served, from 11:00 am until sunset daily, weather permitting. Beverage service only. Complimentary valet parking.

Adirondack Bar:  Open 7 days a week from 11:30 to sunset.


In addition to our standard “first come, first served” Adirondack seating on the Lawn, we can now offer guests the opportunity to reserve a private gathering space, complete with Adirondack furniture and cocktail service.  These exclusive sections accommodate parties of 6-12 guests for 2.5 hours and are the perfect place to host family gatherings, reunions, and bachelorette parties looking to guarantee space to enjoy cocktails on the lawn.


All reservations for this experience are for outdoors, so in the case of inclement weather, we would call to cancel reservations and guests would not be charged. Any cancellations made within 72 hours of the reservation will be assessed a $25 per person cancellation fee.

From May 24th-June 9th, this experience will only be offered Friday-Sunday.  Available 7 days a week beginning June 10th.
