Service was excellent although they don't stock light beer. We only had the prawn small share and the crocodile small share both are entree meals but were enough for a light meal. Icream and chocolate was enjoyable and pineapple dessert was too. Not sure what they did to the chips but need to be improved.

Both the barra and snapper were great with interesting accompaniments. Both the steak eaters agreed that, for the price, there should have been more on the plate with the rib eye. Desserts were well received especially the matcha dish. The double expresso coffee was a let down given the overall high standard of the food. Staff were pleasant, helpful, and friendly.

Lovely food, service and a great location with a lovely vibe. Childrens menu a little fancy for my child but we found something on the full menu he enjoyed.

It was nice but extremely busy, there wasn’t enough staff and the food took forever to come out. There was a table next to us and the poor lady never got her door because they forgot about her order. However the food was really nice and I think they where just caught off with how busy it was so I think if it wasn’t so busy the day would have been a lot nicer. I would still recommend as a place to eat.

Food was great when it came although very busy for Mothers Day so understand a little wait time. One meal (kids) was forgotten completely even after we reminded them 3 times. It came eventually once we had finished our desserts.

Service and food was outstanding. Love trying new restaurants and this one did not let us down. Food and drink menu variety was excellent, catering for all tastes, including gluten free and vegetarian. Seafood was fresh, steak was cooked to order - all served with fresh, zingy side salads (and other sides if required). Share plates are a great idea, and it meant we all got to taste different things, but it was cost effective as well. Definitely going back!

Food was good. Slow with.drinks. waiting staff seemed overwhelmed. Either not enough staff or fairly novice staff. 5 star prices on what overall was not a 5 star experience.

We had booked a table for six people so I think the welcome could have been a bit warmer. The food was good, but I think the ceviche would have been better bought out first, rather than last and we needed to ask for it. The waiter was doing a good job on a very busy day so we all thought it was bad form when the manager, we think, criticised her openly in front of diners. Bad form from him. On a busy day it may have been better to employ extra staff. While all negatives are minor they were noticeable.

Disappointing evening. The highlight was our waiter Anthony. Very positive and informative! However, the drinks were so slow to come and replacements for empty glasses not offered. The top half of our whole fish was good, but the bottom kept cooking, so when we turned the fish over, it was just mush. A waitress tried to take away the plates we were still eating! Overall, a very average meal. You can’t get away with charging 5 star prices for a 2 star experience.

Room for improvement when regarding the food but overall good and we left happy.

The Asian slaw dressing wasn’t good or balanced.
Our chips were bad, like the bottom of the barrel
The fish croquettes were really disappointing. It’s a simple dish and they can be excellent but I don’t like the recipe used for them a snapper rocks.

We also ordered the prawns.

The flavours were a little underwhelming so far and I think to get the customers coming back you need to hook them in with food they can’t resist.

Great service, delicious food, outstanding cocktails and superb service by the manager. We will be back given Darwin has been waiting for such a place for far too long.

I cannot fault Snapper Rocks especially as they have just opened. Service and food was on point.

The food was incredible and even the kids meals have been really though out!

Thanks team!
