The view and the vibe will have me coming back time and time again. Perfect place to watch the sunset!! The food was good, loved that you got to fix your own veggies and salad. Will recommend to others.

We stumbled on this place almost by accident. When we walked in we were a bit iffy about the place as it is a bit run down looking but the view was so good we sat down anyway. So glad we did, the drinks were cold and served quickly. The menu had a great variety and over a couple of... More

Yes, it is a decent place to watch the sunset over the sea. But it is overcrowded and the food is served cafeteria style and is of cafeteria quality. You can visit as a non-member (sign in at the desk as you enter) without a problem. The seafood platter was large and could be shared by two people with average... More

Chose this venue to say cheerio to my good friend Craig and his family. It started ok and the beer was cold. Food though not the best was edible. Problems started when we tried to order standard cocktails . They wouldn't do any that wasn't on the list and then when I tried to order a straight spirit a definite... More

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.
