“Tucked away from the street!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

Behind the main set of shops overlooking the marina. Our favourites are the shoestring fries and grilled barra. Grab a drink and watch evening fall.
It's all outdoors so mozzie repellent is recommended.

“Edgy name, edgy location”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Good seafood meals at an out-of-the way location by a small Darwin marina. You can grab a table right on the water's edge. Perfect. Your seafood and chips arrive on separate paper plates, a little underwhelming, though at least cutlery is not plastic and beverages are served in glass. Probably the worst, though, was the salad, which arrived in a lidded plastic container as though it had been bought off-the-shelf in Coles. it was fresh - but not a good look. There is some compensation in that it all tasted great.
I noticed too late that I was charged for regular chips when ordered (and was served) the small - so better check your bill before you pay up.

“Dissapointed Local”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Made the unfortunate decision to eat Sunday lunch here. Proceeded to the counter and asked for the Calamari , Oh sorry we do not have any. Then decided to order the Flathead tails, Oh sorry we are sold out. Strike two. I then asked for the Whiting fillets, Oh sorry we are sold out. STRIKE THREE. While I was there I was attached by midgies (sandflies).I cannot rate the food as we did not get to eat any. Big tip to the restaurant, if you have run out take it off the menu.

“Great seafood spot”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

This is the best spot in Darwin for your seafood fix. The fish is so fresh and can be cooked battered, crumbed or pan fried. There is three types of chips chunky, shoestring or rustic.
The calamari is to die for so tender. A wide range of all types of seafood to choose from all in a fantastic location right on the y boat marina. Very good drink selection as well. If you are after tge Top End signature fish Barra give this spot a try.
