This is a very busy and popular pub on Mitchell Street. It also is a restaurant! We went early but is was slowly building up fot the evening. The beer was OK, cold as you'd expect. Prices were OK. Believe the bar can get crazy at times!

Just off a cruise ship and had lunch at Monsoons, beer and wine-- very cold, food delicious. Barra and chips and Chillie Prawns and avocado salad, -- good size serves and very fresh with just the right spices. Good place to relax and watch the Darwin rain fall and kill some time. Great place to visit.

This is a tropical Aussie pub/eating place, I can't compare it to a restaurant though as it's a pub! The menu is fairly basic, strange that there's no beef burger on for dinner, only a chicken burger? I had the schnitzel and there was plenty of it and chips/salad, my wife had a pasta dish with vegetables, she commented that... More

Located on Mitchell St, main street of Darwin. Very well known pub and very popular. Neat casual dress is the go however at times the dress code seems fairly loose. This pub can be a little wild at times, mainly with fifo workers and backpackers. Worth trying it out to experience one of the popular pubs in the centre of... More

Monsoons is a great bar for a couple of blokes to catch-up for a few drinks on any day .. but I regularly catch-up with a mate in town at this venue.. good outdoor bar area .. sports on TV and good light meal , snack menu .. highly recommend it .. the BLT and chips is a winner..
