Great Location for Sunset & Food

Our Group arrived just on sunset. We sat outside & experienced a great sunset. Service was prompt and the Bistro provided a good meal. We would return on a future occasion

Waterfront location with famous Darwin vibe. I felt overdressed in sandles and a tank dress. Exellent place for kicking back and having a few coldies and a feed of well cooked local barra with optional prawns at reasonable price. Good wine list too.

This is always a great venue for locals to go to and to take your friends who are visiting. You need to bring some ID so that you can sign in at the front desk. It is always a laugh to see how the scanner translates your names. For large bookings it is best to reserve a table during the... More

Good food with plenty of options. Nothing fancy but good all the same. Great location with terrific view over the beach and water. Great spot for a relaxed lunch.

Fantastic setting for sunset drinks. There is a roast of the day buffet (probably best option) or a choice of typical bistro offerings. Our meals were average but the view made up for it. Easily combined with a stopover at Mindil beach market. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

The sailing club has achieved folklore status for the fabulous location to have sundowners. I've visited Darwin many times and nowadays I live there. I've been to the sailing club many times and it never disappoints. The food is lovely, the service very friendly and the view just tops it off. This place is a must for anyone visiting the... More

The great tradition of closing the working day with a drink, a Sundowner, was invented for places like the darwin sailing club, Just go there late afternoon, choose a drink and a position overlooking the sea and you'll get it. Brilliant sunset every night.. Kind of like yoga on the beach, without the yoga. Chin-Chin.!

Another classic must do for visitors and residents alike. Sit outside, enjoy the sunset, eat, drink and be happy. Menu predictable and uninspired but location makes up for it.
