Found one of the best spots to watch the sunset in Darwin with a drink in hand & then have a very good dinner afterwards ! The weather was perfect and the view from the outside dining area was superb, very relaxing and the place was near full. The Waterfront Bistro had a large selection of meat, seafood, pasta &... More

Dined here twice on a recent trip to Darwin, both times the weather was beautiful and as such the view overlooking the ocean was breathtaking. Could not fault the meals both my lunch and dinner selections were tasty and of a decent size.

Of all restaurants in Darwin, you have to enjoy this one during the long hot winter. I'll never forget the sunset I witnessed; truly exquisite sitting outside looking out over the beach and watching the sun slowly set. Fortunately you won't be disappointed with the meal either. Generous serves and good Aussie cuisine: what's also available is a fresh salad... More

Been here for Sunday roast and it's amazing, with the view of the ocean sitting on the green grass. Drinks are cheap also and great to take the family

This is a terrific venue for a relaxing afternoon overlooking the water. We stayed for a few hours to watch the stunning sunset and had dinner also which was great. It was Sunday so we had the Sunday Roast Pork which was a generous serving, complete with crackling, apple sauce plenty of veges and choice of the salad bar. Our... More

This is an outstanding venue for families who have kids old enough to play while the grown ups watch the sun set into the sea. The food is pretty great too. I had stir fried squid which was the best I've ever tasted. Kids loved their fish and chips and hubby liked that the bar staff didn't leave you waiting... More

Have been to the Darwin Sailing Club a few times over the years and returned there again recently for lunch whilst in Darwin. The location is stunning, with the view over the water breathtaking. However we found the food to be pretty ordinary. It's also on the expensive side, apart from the items on the lunch menu which were OK... More

We find ourselves at the sailing club at least once a week. I would almost give 5 stars purely for the view over Fannie Bay at sunset, it's nothing short of magical. We also love to dine here due to the fact that there is a playground for the kids to keep themselves amused while you sit, unwind and enjoy... More

The sunset was amazing and it was great for the kids to be able to run around. Very very busy when we were there as there was a function in part of the bistro but we got a table and enjoyed the atmosphere. The food however is very average, but the views and family friendly atmosphere made it worthwhile. Just... More
