“Relaxed casual sunset dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Very relaxed beautiful setting with good live music & magnificent sunset views. Good food, chilli ginger barramundi is superb, and fun crowd which can get noisy.
Parking is difficult.

“Oh, those sunsets!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Having lived in Darwin some years ago and owning a boat, we were members of the sailing club and went regularly every Sunday night - not always for dinner (the food was pretty ordinary back then) but there's no better place in Darwin to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. Hadn't visited since 2009 and was disappointed to find that everything was the same as it was then - literally. The place is in dire need of a paint job and some new furniture. The food, however, has improved. Still a special place, though!

“Casual Sunset Dining in Darwin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

What a beautiful, relaxing night on the edge of the water. Arrived early to watch the sunset and enjoyed some tasty local prawns, nicely cooked calamari, local fish and a bottle of wine and the day turned into night. The Sailing Club was quite busy but good bar service and not too long to wait for food. Very enjoyable night and would absolutely return and recommend!
