We decided to try some takeaway based on the positive reviews and were very disappointed with the variety and food quality. The chips tasted old, the calamari was rubbery and the salad was not a salad but rather separate salad ingredients that you had to assemble yourself. To give credit where it's due, the crumbled prawns were tasty (at $3... More

We came across La Beach by chance. The restaurant is in a great location right on the beach with palm trees and a beautiful lawn right in front. The owner was fantastic, very friendly and helpful and helped us pick out the right combination of local seafood for our family. The food was very fresh and tasted great. I’m not... More

with an awesome sunset over Cullen Bay, and the freshest fish and chips in Darwin how can anyone expect more or better? my friend took us there for an impromptu after work meal and we loved it. Steak sandwich to die for at $14 and the biggest serve of chips at $6 enough to feed 3, the value for money... More

My companions and I went to La Beach yesterday, Sunday. We chose 2 crumbed and one grilled Barramundi, chips and a garden salad $60+. The salad was soggy and had started to go bad......the grilled Barramundi was thin and poor quality, chips were average. All in all, a very an appealing meal. Would not recommend.

This was a nice place to visit for fish, chips and perhaps a cleansing ale while enjoying the view of the ocean. The food is very nice and their range of available fish (including Flake, to my wife's delight) was good. But it's the lovely view that makes this place worth the trip. A good place.

We were very disappointed to go to la beach yesterday for the sunset to find it is closed! Google has it listed as open today but when we went up there they have a sign out that it is closed from 4-12 oct for whatever reason. If we had known we would not have bothered as nothing much is open... More

Bit of a hit and miss deep fried food how can you stuff that up? Over cooking ! When it was cooked good the batter on the battered sav's was really thick! Then the other time the potato cakes were the best and then they were so small ! But they always throw in a few extras ! You can... More

Best fish and chips in the area. Cannot fault. Efficient service even during busy periods. Do also try other items on the menu - the local prawn was really just one prawn, but a huge and juicy prawn it was!

My favourite place for fish and chips in Darwin. Fish is always perfectly cooked and the chips are always crispy.
