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.

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...

Make sure you visit in the late afternoon, just before sunset. Amazing place to watch the sun set, while enjoying a pub feel meal with a cold beverage. Busy by 6pm, however enough table and chairs around. Very good

We were told by friends to venture out to the Sailing Club for dinner. It is a no frills establishment, but get there early as it was very crowded by 6pm. Great place for sunset drinks, a superb view. Kitchen was extremely busy, even on a Monday night.The seafood platter was sensational value, and was very good. Good prices both... More
