Nice ambiance. Food was nice but crocodile needed a different condiment such as a sweet chilly sauce. When asked if they had any sweet chilly they didn't. A bit sad for a restaurant not to have or be able to supply. Staff very nice.

Good service, food was really nice, probably one of the best feed I had in Darwin! Papaya salad could have been a little more flavoursome but otherwise everything was perfect.

Incredibly delicious, fresh seafood. Excellent prices. All of the staff were happy and helpful even though they were very busy. The girl on the bar is an absolute gun at her job. Such a great, relaxing place. Everyone should experience this place. We are going back again just before our flight out because it was so great.

Nice. Short staffed and it was obvious. Not the normal standard, but you don’t get a discount for it being average!

Drinks service was slow and they got the order wrong - we explained that to 3 different staff - finally delivered the G&Ts ordered - minus 2 because they ran out of the Gin asked for - but then charged us for the 2 drinks on the bill! Food was good.

Food was excellent (cudos to the chefs) with good service and nice location. Staff were quick, efficient and polite and apart from an initial 'blip' with trying to get the attention of the head waitress who totally ignored my elderly parents until I arrived from parking the car we would have looked towards five stars overall.

I enjoyed the experience as a general comment and found the food reasonable but the finishing touches were lacking. The dishes came without serving utensils and there was no jus served with the lamb shoulder. When I requested serving utensils and just the wait staff appeared confused and after a lengthy explanation I received 2 tablespoons for 3 dishes and received a visit from a more senior wait staff member to clarify my request for jus. Unfortunately by the time it all came together my interest in the meal had waned and I felt disappointed in what had the potential to be an amazing dining experience.

Amazing food. Great service! Has to be one of the best, if not the best place for dinner in Darwin. The fish wings, salt and pepper squid and the whole fish are just outstanding .
