Fabulous outlook

Sitting outdoors enjoying a balmy Darwin evening is a real treat. No table service and food good rather than excellent. Good value.

Sitting under umbrellas drinking crisp white wine and eating oysters and prawns was very agreeable. Brisk friendly service and great setting watching the yachts racing in the bay.

A pre-sunset visit to Darwin Sailing Club was highly recommended by our friends so we went late on a Sunday afternoon (after a great afternoon at the PINT Club listening to First Sunday Blues performances by local NT musicians). The sunset was beautiful and we got lots of photos. The seafood was fresh and enjoyable. The beer cold and wine... More

we had a table of 5 eat here for a business dinner and what an amazing experience! the food was sensational and the view was even better. The only downfall is that they don't have wait staff but overall this was a memorable experience and i can't wait to dine here again. Well done!

Brilliant place for a group get together. Oysters flown in daily and fabulous. Rib steak on the bone was one of the best I have ever had.

Arrived at 5:00 pm and had pre dinner drinks from well stocked bar. Ordered dinner just after 5:30 and did not have to wait too long. Beer battered NT barramundi came with chips and salad, bit expensive but salad bar was good and you could fill up a side plate. Chicken parmigiana was huge so a side plate was needed... More

The food's good, the bar well stocked, the staff are efficient & friendly & the sunset's a major drawcard. What's not to like? We went on a Wednesday night, arrived about 5pm to avoid the sign in rush, had a pre-dinner drink while waiting for food. Dinner was enjoyable - fair price for a good meal. Sunset saw a fair...
