“Good venue for the family”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We attended on a Friday night. The view over the water was wonderful. The variety of food was good.The storm held off for the course of our meal. We had a large seafood platter that had lobster and bugs included. We would definitely go back again.

“My favourite part of Darwin”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I spent 3 days in Darwin recently and found the wharf precinct the be the most attractive area of the city. I walked down there on the first evening of my stay and was pleasantly surprised at the layout, with the restaurants & hotels built around the lagoon. I continued up to Stokes Hill Wharf and was again delighted at the selection of food available: a large variety of cuisines at an affordable price, with a scenic and family-friendly dining area directly beside the harbour. It's worth finding the Schnitzel takeaway store to try your hand at some camel, buffalo or crocodile.

“Everything at your doorstep!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We stayed at the Vibe Hotel which is in a great location looking over the wave pool and the wharfs. We didn't eat near the hotel but there looked like a number of nice restaurants close to the water. We did eat at The Jetty Restaurant and from the foodhall outlets on Stokes Hill Wharf which were great, right on the water. It was also a 10 minute walk to the Smith Street Mall. I think this would probably be the best area to stay in Darwin as it felt very safe.

“Seafood Heaven!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

A working waterfront with plenty to see and do. The Precinct Bar is a standout for its wide range of beers and interesting menu at reasonable prices. Plenty of parking. Walk to the end of the wharf well worth it for the view of the harbour. Seafood widely available at reasonable prices.
