“Tasty uncomplicated food in a relaxing setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Lunched here on the outside deck overlooking the marina, after catching the bus out from the CBD ($2 each for 3 hours of bus travel). The calamari was seriously delicious and even at entree size enough to feed two people, while the barra (two large pieces) came with crispy chips and a lovely fresh Greek salad. Wine list was more than adequate, the service was friendly and the setting was lovely (as long as you don't mind looking at boats belonging to rich people). And if you don't want to pay restaurant prices to have your food served to you on a plate by a friendly waitress, there is a range of take-away options to choose from.

“Great location, excellent seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

All my meals here have been great. The corn fritters with avocado salsa and smoked salmon is light, tasty and quite delicious. I loved the calamari - it was very lightly battered and tender and yummy. The prawn Caesar salad was really good, but I don't see the point of leaving the prawns in their shells and topped with dressing. Messy. I had a fantastic special one night of mango and calamari salad which was superb.Sitting out on the deck (the only place there is actually), watching life in the Marina and the sunny Darwin sky is a treat

“Good location and food but not enough of it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Lovely location tucked away from the crowds. Food is very tasty but less than entree size meals at a very big price. Not much service. Bottom line this is a fish and chip cafe charging restaraunt prices and not providing service.

“Great food, nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Had two great meals in the last two days here, one lunch which was great overlooking the water and marina and dinner tonight which was also great. Wide menu choice, reasonably priced, good quality. As the name suggests mainly seafood,but there was a steak and pasta as well. Had the calamari which was perfect at lunch and at dinner has the bug and camembert pastry, which was very good. Everyone in our group loved their meal, recommended for a great lunch or night out

“Always Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We often dine at Christo's and it's always great food. The seafood is fresh and the menu is quite extensive, so plenty to choose from. The views are fantastic looking over the small marina. My recommendation is the stuffed jalapenos with blue cheese. Service is always great, and staff are friendly and happy to be there.
