There are a few restaurants in this relatively new area of Darwin, and after spending 6 months living in WharfOne I've tried all of them. If you're looking for a good meal, with good service, especially if you like Seafood, Ocean Fresh is definitely the choice. It really ticks all the boxes. I'm going to say it's the standard $30...

We were a group of 8 dining on a Saturday afternoon. We felt it was overpriced for what you get. Comments from the group were that their bugs were over cooked and drowned in a sauce that over took the meal, Atlantic salmon was over cooked, scallops were over cooked and not good value when you only get four.

From the moment we stepped in the front door we felt it wasn’t such a good decision. They have an outdoor covered area as well as an air-conditioned section indoors which we chose. There wasn’t anybody else there as we were early diners and the atmosphere was “cozy” (a polite way of saying “enclosed” or “squeezed in”). We sat at... More

Love this restaurant, the food is fantastic, particularly the Barramundi. Service is always excellent and the location is wonderful. It's one of the rare restaurants where you can actually have a conversation without shouting to be heard. It has become our "regular". Price is on a par to other good restaurants in Darwin. Would recommend to anyone from families to... More

We went here for dinner on our first night in Darwin and were not impressed. The meals were overpriced and the waiters didn't give us enough time to finish our meal or drinks. One of them actually tried to take away my friends drink when it was still half full! I would not return to this restaurant if I went... More

This was the hilight of the area. Went twice in 4 days. Fish red curry exceptional. Wine list good. Family friendly. Attentative and pleasant service. Would recommend this without hesitation.

Location great. Service pretty good. Perhaps a bit over priced... Entrees were a bit disappointing... Bland... Nothing to write home about...but main of crispy skin barramundi and a fish curry were pretty good. Didn't like that we had to pay $4.00 for two little dry bread rolls when we asked if they served bread with mains, when most restaurants charging... More

The menu boasts some impressive dishes, unfortunately the kitchen doesnt seem to deliver, I had the bouillabaisse and was looking forward to it, but in a low set dish with hardly any soup, and three prawns and some shellfish I found it a meager attempt, my partner was impressed with the moreton bay bugs and for its price I'm glad...

After reading the last review I went to Ocean Fresh with a bit of hesitation but was pleasantly surprised with both the service and the variety of food on offer. As a local Darwinite you come to expect poor service from most of the restaurants around town but we could not fault the attentive and friendly staff. Being a seafood... More
