“On Australia Day the place was rocking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Having never been to Darwin before, we were concerned how quiet it was but then discovered that lots of locals were at The Deck Bar. The place was going off from about 6.30pm onwards as there were a lot of "happy" people enjoying Australia Day. There is also a great menu with lots of choices. By about 8.30pm after having a meal, it was time to go as it was all getting a bit loud as everyone was having a ball so we left them to it.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had been advised to eat there but ended up just drinking but i think we missed out as the food looked absolutely amazing for a pub/bar. Great location as well!

“They're right about their laksa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I went here for dinner with a work mate while visiting town this week. The place was pretty quiet and closed early (it was a Tuesday), but you can tell it is the sort of place that goes off later in the week and on the weekends. Lots of outdoor seating under a beautiful tree with lights all through it, very pretty. There was a solo guitarist while we were there as well. My friend ordered the chicken parmigania, her first ever, she said it was a little dry but ok (about 22 AUD). I had the seafood laksa (under 20AUD) - which they claim on the menu is the best in town. I haven't had other laksa's in Darwin to actually know if this is true, but the laksa was just gorgeous! lots of seafood, the broth was creamy and lemony, seriously a pleasure to eat. I will absolutely go next time Im up for a bit of pub atmosphere, and try some other bits on the menu (you can find the menu on their website)

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Deck Bar has an awesome outdoor dining area with live entertainment provided.
We ordered the Tapas Platter as per below for $45, and it fed both of us with leftovers! Every item was fresh and delicious and the presentation was amazing! Highly recommended! :)

“Must visit for travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Deck Bar is the place to be on a Sunday! The food here is good, the service is great.. but the atmophere on a sunday is amazing. With DJ's playing on the decks, Deck bar is a great choice to meet some new people, chill out on the outdoor deck and listen to some great tunes.
