What a gem of a restaurant. Casual fish and chips sitting on a balcony with views of Darwin Harbour. Excellent value and large portions quickly served. Worth a revisit.

Overall, I was dissapointed with the quality of seafood places in Darwin given the location & weather. La Beach was expensive for fish & Chips. They were OK but not outstanding. The crumbing option is great but $14.50 for a piece of Barra wrapped in paper is expensive. The venue looked tired, needed a good spring clean & refresh. The... More

Great place to grab a parcel of fish and chips and sit and watch the sunset. Because of fires in and around Darwin the sunset was amazing. Fish and chips were average, but come with plenty of lemon. Price seemed a bit on the high side for a piece of Barramundi being $14. however squid rings were good value for... More

La Beach is quite popular and serves a variety of fish - battered, crumbed... some local, most not (seemed odd considering I'd heard about all the great seafood from... More

Every time we have tried to come here the queue was always too long but tonight we decided to do the wait. Must have been lined up for at least 20 minutes and then got told we had 50 minute wait for our food when we finally did get served. We waited so long that we drank our bottle of... More
