Food is amazing. Wish more people knew about this place. The smokehouse burger should be on everyone’s bucket list. 2 burger patties, thick cut bacon and brisket slices. Only 3 tables with customers on Sunday night. It would be full if people gave it a shot.

About the restaurant
Residing inside the historic Agassiz Mansion at Castle Hill Inn, Aurelia is the next evolution in Castle Hill’s culinary journey – one that has been lauded as one of the best dining experiences in New England. Nestled on forty magical acres, the property has been the backdrop of memorable occasions for more than a century.

The Forbes and Relais & Chateaux restaurant, known in its original incarnation as The Dining Room at Castle Hill, offers a six-course prix fixe 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, culminating in a truly memorable experience.

It was a really lovely meal with fabulous service. There was a lot of food and I particularly liked the Tuna Tartare. The cheese plate is being consumed as I type this for breakfast :) The lamb was delicious. Yep, brilliant experience.

Every time we have eaten at the Atlantic Inn the food has been on pint. We are never disappointed which is why we continue to come back. The food is always well executed and the service is excellent. This time was for our anniversary and we had the scallops and the tuna belly special. Everything was fantastic!
