Has to be the most underrated restaurant in Darwin, the decor was simple yet the food was outstanding. Absolutely loved it.

Partner and I are still raving about the steak!!! Best steak we have ever had so tender and flavoursome. Will definitely be coming back

The food was the saviour here. Really tasty, but, serving a bland slaw with a grilled fish should perhaps be rethought...
Service was well below average. One waitperson was quite false and the other girl learning had never been shown how to pour wine.
Once we'd finished we were ignored, had to ask another waitperson for our bill...
Trying to be hip, but just not getting there.
A fail for us.
Try Wharf One at the other end instead, much better.

Awesome meal could have done with the waitress advising that we order drinks at the table and her English was not good but she was pleasant

Great local restaurant with a focus on using fresh, local to create wonderful combinations for their menu. Whilst seafood is a specialty, there are other things on the menu for the non-seafood lovers.

Squid as main was really disappointed. No balanced with the side : fried squid with fries ... kind of very expensive fast-food

Everything was fantastic!, however the restaurant was very noisy, it made having a conversation at the table very difficult. Perhaps look into some acoustic solutions?...

I have been several times before and the food / evening has always been excellent however on this occasion it was terrible. Three in the party. Two orders of salt & pepper squid were returned because the calamari was so tough we would have had more success chewing through my leather handbag than what was presented on the plates. Two alternative meals to the calamari (one scotch fillet and one fish dish) were also well below average. The fish dish was non descript in flavour and the scotch fillet, whilst cooked as ordered, was at least one third of fat which was left at the side of the plate. One rib fillet was overcooked and dry but my friend chose not to return it (because she had to wait so long for her food that she was starving) although she did mention her disappointment to the wait staff when they collected the plates. A comment was also made to the wait staff about the below average meals as evidenced by the amount of food left on the plates. Also the time taken to serve drinks was far too long. Whilst the wait staff apologised for the meals, it really wasn't good enough. If the chef had been advised that all 5 plates of meals were not to the satisfaction of the customers, then he/she should have made an effort to discuss with us or at least offer a personal apology. Up until now I have readily recommended Snapper Rocks to my friends but after this, I'll be telling them not to bother wasting their money. A very disappointing night. Definitely won't be back.

We have been here a few times and always loved it but Sunday night, service was slow, noise was VERY load and they had no fish wings.

Food seemed over cooked and it was disappointing overall.
Usually a GREAT experience but this was an off night.

Air con was not adequate, inside table booked to keep cool
Doors open and air con off made the indoor booking pointless

The food was stunning, it was our first time her and we will definitely be back ; every course was delicious. Had the fish wings and cauliflower for starter and buffalo and snapper for main. Just beautiful. The real star was our waiter ( American or Canadian guy). He was fantastic and epitomises great customer service.
