This place is simply amazing. Prior to leaving Cairns on our twice yearly fishing trip to Darwin the first request from my 9yr old was "Can we go to Seafood on Cullen again". This was always going to happen anyway considering the experiences we have had there on our last 2 visits to Darwin. On our 2 previous trips to... More

Before deciding to eat at this restaurant we visited trip advisor. Not a lot of great reviews but we decided to give it a go. Unfortunately the only thing good about this restaurant is the view of the sunset. Food barely warm. Cheap tasting chocolate fountain. Not a lot of fruit to go with it unless you like watermelon or... More

This place gets a huge amount of positive word of mouth around Darwin. We went with fairly low expectations. It wasn't bad- but it was far from good. It is fairly typical for an All You Can Eat joint, and most people who were there were doing just that. I wouldn't recommend.

Well yes there's plenty to eat. Ranging from soup, pasta, meat, salad, hot cold, fish, mussels, prawns, sand crabs. We weren't that fussed as we just cant eat that much food, kids wasted food, wasn't the best quality, probably visit once a year. Its a personal choice you have to try it to see if you like it> >> plenty... More

I'm sure on occasion this place could be amazing but that was far from my experience. I have never written a review before tonight but this is called for. We were super excited for dinner but that quickly deflated we had terrible service, the floor staff were unhappy and weren't treated too nice by barman. The dessert bar had off... More

I make my regular pilgrimage to Seafood on Cullen every time I travel to Darwin. For $42.50 you cannot find a better all-you-can-eat restaurant in Australia. It's great. You can choose from fresh seafood including mussels, prawns, crab, oysters and fish. There's fried food if that's your thing. There's an Asian touch also. Salads, breads, soups, roast duck, roast port,... More

Would be more aptly renamed as 'Bain marie on Cullen' that it presented as, at least they were consistent with poor decor, rude staff, chairs having lining falling down from the base, and mis-matched glasses for drinks. And not in a 'rustic' kind of way... $42.50 per person - only to find that the seafood buffet is in fact -... More

Have visited this buffet restaurant several times over the past few years & I am always pleased with the food & service. Friendly welcome and swift seating (probably a good idea to book ahead if more than 2 people as always busy Fridays and Saturdays). The chicken & seafood soup usually has large pieces of crab legs so real seafood... More
