The Sailing club is in one of the best settings in Darwin. Right on the beach. The menu is very extensive. The meals are good size & value for money. The place is quite stylish inside, outside has a big marque to protect you from sun & rain. Kids can run around on the beach. A place to come back... More

This place is amazing and has the integrity to match. Great staff, awesome atmosphere and fantastic food. It is always busy so plan ahead and settle in once you have secured a table. Way ahead of most clubs in the area and is always looking to improve. Sunset beers are a must!!

Decent food and location. Fairly pricey for the food. Outdoors is nice (no option for indoors). The drinks and food required two different tab, so a pain in the butt for a business dinner. Fine for a friends casual dinner out.

This is an absolute must for any darwin tourist. The view at sunset is incredible, the food is generously sized and very delectable. The staff are also very attentive. Casual and cool fitting clothing is suitable for this venue.

My brother was raving about his favourite spot to take people for dinner in Darwin. Under his instructions I was to order the surf and turf and....the steak melted in my mouth. The prawns on top were good but the sunset was the 'shining light' (pun intended). Looking forward to coming back.

Really enjoyed having dinner here in the past week. Standard fare - we had a seafood platter to share which was fine but the main attraction is the location next to the water with palm trees. Fabulous sunset views. Nothing flash, so casual attire is fine.

Booked a sailing lesson, it was horrible. We got swore at, called Fking slow by the instructor. She was generally very rude. Her name was Britney, she pretty much just said: get in the water, and bairly taught us anything all she did was sit and play on her phone. And that was just our group 1, I heard what... More

We booked our conference dinner here as we had heard from the locals that it was one of the best views of the sunset in town and it didnt disappoint. The staff were great and very helpful, the buffet was really nicely cooked and a good variety and quality. Would definately recommend this venue for a conference or large group... More

Perfect spot for a sundowner with he sunset over Fannie Bay. Food is good and service is fine for a club. Must say the hardest thing is the bar and restaurant are run separately so if you are taking a group they don't communicate well between each other so each will ask for a credit card if you want to...
