“Only place to buy seafood”
Review of Darwin Fish Market

Darwin Fish Market
Ranked #7 of 29 Shopping in Darwin
Attraction details
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I have patronised this store on several occasions as I like to cook my own mud crabs, and the price is always less than other competitors. It pays to call in the morning, otherwise sold out.
Nothing beats fresh locally caught seafood and they have a great selection and employ friendly staff who are happy to assist in anyway! We will certainly be back!

I visited Darwin Fish Markets after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor. I purchased 2 SUPPOSEDLY delicious FRESH Darwin mud crabs. One was still partly frozen and tasteless. The other mud crab's flesh was slimy and brown. The internal organs were also brown and revolting. I don't rate this place at all!

Not only a fantastic place to buy local and Australian seafood, Saturday mornings will see the Chef giving lessons. Friend and I were interested in preparing and cooking squid. Not a problem with the hands-on experience; from prep to taste.

It was a pleasure to experience what is one on Darwin's iconic must stop at Sea Food Store........I came out with lots of great food and they make their own Burra dip to die for will have to go back just for this.....Oh the service was warm and friendly too
