Sitting out in the garden at Darwin Sailing Club, seeing the palm trees, the harbour and sun set made me think I was in Fiji. It's a great spot. The alcohol and food is reasonably priced, but the food is nothing to rave about - standard pub style options in enormous servings. It is definitely worth going to though just... More

We had a lovely meal with the family here while visiting them in Darwin. It was a great spot overlooking the water and a handy playground for the little ones. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We will be back.

We come here regularly with friends and family. The views over the water are simply spectacular and the atmosphere is so relaxed. Every meal has been great. Portions are very generous at great prices and there is something for all tastes on the menue. Try the Thai or Japanese Oysters. Simply devine.

Every visit to the Darwin sailing club is always a pleasant experience. The meals are big and not overly priced, and best of all, the beers are cold and the bar staff are very quick and are good at remembering your drinks order. Great spot to relax and bring the family, or relax with friends and soak up the end... More

The warm lamb salad, at $22 per plate, was a delicious example of healthy eating in a pub enviornment. The view across the harbour was glorious as usual, and the $9 glass of wine was about the norm. Tip: get kids the side of fried rice. The salad bar with mains is a handy extra. The Carbonara looked good. The... More

The menu has all the normal selections and the food is upmarket Pub style with good size portions. The atmosphere is casual and outdoor dining is typical Darwin. You wont be... More
