“Fish and Chips and sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

A great place for a fish and chips restaurant. Right at the beach with a large covered terrace overlooking the sea. You get fantastic views of the famous Darwin sunset.

The fish and chips is fresh and tasty - both thumbs up!

They've got a reasonable selection of beer and wine.

The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back to this great place.

“Position, position, position.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Very basic food - basically fish and chips - but a great spot for a beer and view of the Darwin harbour.

Went out for supper with kids (19,14,12,9) and both times they wanted to come here... Quality food, but not complicated. A fun place with great staff.

“Yes some of the best fish in town !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

It is not white table cloths and starchy waiters - it is one up from fish and chips in paper because they give tables and chairs to unroll your paper parcel at; PLUS they have wine and beer service and the BEST view of the northern sunset. The grilled fish is also very very good and tasty.
The manager/owner keeps a keen eye on the staff and takes a personal interest in the enjoyment of the diners.
All up a great 'top end' casual dining experience - a gotta-try-it

“Best fish & chips in Darwin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I have been a couple times now and I love it here! The calamari is amazing and the chips are a good sized portion for only $4. Fish very fresh and a good variety of dipping sauces to choose from.
