This is an all you can eat seafood restaurant that makes you spoilt for choice. There is fresh prawns, oysters and mussels then cooked seafood. Even Chinese options just when you can eat no more you see the desert bar. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant caters to large groups with large appetites. While I tried a number of offerings, none were really outstanding. Two members of our group tried the steak but couldn't cut it. The photos of food provided by others are accurate and up to date. There were lots of dessert choices. We were a large group and the seating was... More

A great setting for a tropical evening. The food is a mix of seafood, steak and Asian with soup and deserts. It is always fresh and plenty of it and the staff are very helpful. 39AUD per head for all you can, or want to, eat is good value.

This little gem, isn't well advertised and a locally told us about it. So glad they did good was amazing $40 for all you can eat, prawns , oysters, crab. Wines and drinks reasonably priced to. Sitting on the outdoor deck is amazing at sunset. They even had can of bug spray which was a nice little perk as I'd... More

Having been to another buffet in Darwin, I was expecting the same amount of food available for selection. I was sadly disappointed when I arrived for it to have half the buffet size for the same price. Overall the food was good, tasty. Staff walk around with cocktails and visit tables to sell them. Found this a little intrusive. Probably... More

Not a bad buffet. I think you need to be smart though in what you select. Dint get the oysters or old marinated seafood and it will be fine. A nice easy destination for the family

Although the internal dining area is a little cramped - the outdoor dining area is perfect for the dry season (may - Sept). The food ranges from average to good. There is variety and the seafood seems fresh. My only gripe is that i have been several times now and every time i have either left the table to go... More
