We were all very impressed with the selection and quality of the meal. We arrived right on 5:30pm so the food was all fresh and delicious. It got quiet busy as the night went on so definately recommend an early dinner. The selection was a nice change from our usual buffet at home and offered some great choices for all... More

The Jetty is an all you can eat dining option at about $38 a head. I visited with my big eating husband and our teenage daughter who treats a buffet as a personal challenge. The spot could not be faulted, it is on the start of the Jetty and I would recommend you get a seat on the deck. We... More

The views from here are great, overlooking Darwin Harbour. The food is alright, average standard but I wouldn't say it's worth the cost though. As for the service, well the wait staff remind me seagulls. You no sooner put your knife and fork down and their taking your plate, to the point they hang around watching you, waiting for you...

The quality of the seafood and food in general is very good, and you can eat as much as you want. I'm not a big eater but I enjoyed the wide variety that is available. Only very very samll negative, no ice cream, I would have loved Ice Cream

This is a nice place to go to if you have guests over, or simply looking for somewhere to celebrate a birthday. From memory, the buffet is between $30- $40 so it isn't cheap, and the food is only average.

When I was a kid, being taken to any buffet was the best! I remember my mum always saying 'your eyes are bigger than your belly!' So it goes without saying that I tend to enjoy one! I can't remember who told me of this place - and I wish I did. So i could go back as ask why... More

Right by the water and watch the sunset and boats sail by. Help yourself to seafood, Asian food and steaks to order and go back as often as your appetite requires. Excellent staff and quick and easy self serve with plenty of room either inside or out. If too hot air conditioned inside.

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
