We just bought some great prawns and barra here - fresh and tasty. We loved the service too, the woman who served us was really eager to help us make the right selection.

“You can smell the freshness as you walk in.”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Ive been buying my seafood from Darwin fish market for years.
Soon as you walk in it has a fresh and clean smell, not like some other local seafood places I've been too where you have to hold your breath so you don't gag.
The plus for me is there is a great variety of local and Australian seafood, NT live mud crabs are a must to try, always full of meat. Best for chilli crab.YUM! I love their fresh cooked prawns, bugs, white bait, NT snapper fillets. Oh I can go on and on…….
The staff are always helpful and if you go on saturdays you will catch the iron chef cooking up a fresh sample. Last time i went he made battered fish, So good it melted in my mouth.
Take it from a local you can't get any fresher.
Thanks Darwin Fish for always keeping fresh!

“Freshen up!!!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Been patronising this store for a few years now and while it has been hit and miss, sadly it has been a lot more miss these days.
Bought cooked prawns that were so salty they were inedible. Often have bought frozen seafood that has also been inedible.
Come on guys it's all you do- get it right. Have spent a lot of money in your shop and questioning whether to go back.

“Only place to buy seafood”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I have patronised this store on several occasions as I like to cook my own mud crabs, and the price is always less than other competitors. It pays to call in the morning, otherwise sold out.
Nothing beats fresh locally caught seafood and they have a great selection and employ friendly staff who are happy to assist in anyway! We will certainly be back!
