“Hello Sailor !”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

Found one of the best spots to watch the sunset in Darwin with a drink in hand & then have a very good dinner afterwards ! The weather was perfect and the view from the outside dining area was superb, very relaxing and the place was near full. The Waterfront Bistro had a large selection of meat, seafood, pasta & chicken dishes with a large salad selection as well. The club was also well set up with family areas and BBQ's and the staff were pretty friendly & busy !! Well worth dropping in when the Sun is over the Yardarm !!

“Great view!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Dined here twice on a recent trip to Darwin, both times the weather was beautiful and as such the view overlooking the ocean was breathtaking. Could not fault the meals both my lunch and dinner selections were tasty and of a decent size.

“What an amazing location”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Of all restaurants in Darwin, you have to enjoy this one during the long hot winter. I'll never forget the sunset I witnessed; truly exquisite sitting outside looking out over the beach and watching the sun slowly set. Fortunately you won't be disappointed with the meal either. Generous serves and good Aussie cuisine: what's also available is a fresh salad bar which adds to the depth and breadth of the offering. It's not cheap but it is great tasty and reliable food.

“Sunday roasts”
Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

Been here for Sunday roast and it's amazing, with the view of the ocean sitting on the green grass. Drinks are cheap also and great to take the family
