Awesome humongous meals and great, friendly staff. Love the baby croc in the aquarium on the counter. Choice to sit in or outside, we chose out and loved it. Located in secluded place but easy to find ad we were on foot staying nearby.

Food is good, Tim is still an entertaining character and it's in a nice secluded spot. A great experience

The meals were huge and tasty and real value for money. The menu is diverse and covers all tastes. The staff were relaxed, fun and fantastic. Mein host Tim was regularly... More

The food was great, large serves - steak was melt in your mouth. Fish was excellent, we even tried the tasting plate of crocodile. The service was excellent, so not like Darwin. The waitresses were polite - friendly and happy. Tim was around and lovely as usual. So nice to see people who like their jobs. The food as excellent.

Were recommended to try this place out as looking for good barramundi. On arrival we were quickly shown to a table and were given the rundown on how to order. It was suggested that we ordered quickly so we wouldn't have to wait too long as they were going to be busy later. Having nearly finished our bottle of wine... More

Yep, you know those times when you line up, order and pay and the people behind you get served alot earlier than you? Was one of those times. We ordered only mains and it took nearly an hour and 10 mins to get them. A rump steak and lamb shanks. On top of that, mash served with the shanks were... More

The food here was excellent. 6+ Marble Wagyu Steak for $50 and cooked to absolute perfection. Seafood platter was also perfect but massive! The staff were friendly, the place was clean and had a really nice atmosphere in the outdoor garden eating area. I was definitely looking forward to seeing the pet crocodile but he sadly had passed away and... More

Tim's Surf and Turf is a well positioned restaurant, which is has very pleasant atmosphere. It has an outdoor section, a must for the dry in Darwin as well as indoor. It is simple, but pleasant decor. Tim does a lot of the serving and really makes one feel welcome. When he has 2 minutes of free time you may... More
