The Aurelia Story
Born Out of
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.

Our aim at Aurelia is to serve simple and elegant ingredient-driven food, classically derived, yet infused with modern techniques and twists.
Sourcing & Cuisine
From local purveyors to Aurelia’s gardens
Gourmet-minded guests are treated to an incredible farm-to-table experience at Aurelia. As one of the most respected Newport, RI hotels, Aurelia at Castle Hill prides itself on serving meals in a location that is second to none in New England – not only for the mesmerizing view, but for the bounty provided by the surrounding lands. Aurelia sources seafood fished from the waters around Aquidneck Island, fruits and berries from local orchards, and artisanal cheeses.
Much of the greens and produce for Aurelia are grown in Castle Hill’s kitchen gardens and greenhouses, nestled among the Inn’s forty acres. The exceptional wine list features more than 800 selections and has been awarded the “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator ten years running. Wine and house-made non-alcoholic pairings, curated by Aurelia’s sommelier, complement the menu.
