I just rated on the club not the restaurant and the club was really bad. The club is a normal club, nothing special and actually perfekt to have fun with a group of friends(that's why I gave two stars not one) if there wouldn't be the security people. We came really early to the club, of course we had some... More

Good cheap drinks, friendly service, a strange mixture of dance music and a wandering guitarist playing downbeat 80's ballads... Crowd on a Sunday night was a blend of drunk FIFO workers and locals on the tail end of a Sunday session - not the place for a quiet beer but if you're up for a party it's the place to... More

This is a very busy and popular pub on Mitchell Street. It also is a restaurant! We went early but is was slowly building up fot the evening. The beer was OK, cold as you'd expect. Prices were OK. Believe the bar can get crazy at times!

Just off a cruise ship and had lunch at Monsoons, beer and wine-- very cold, food delicious. Barra and chips and Chillie Prawns and avocado salad, -- good size serves and very fresh with just the right spices. Good place to relax and watch the Darwin rain fall and kill some time. Great place to visit.

This is a tropical Aussie pub/eating place, I can't compare it to a restaurant though as it's a pub! The menu is fairly basic, strange that there's no beef burger on for dinner, only a chicken burger? I had the schnitzel and there was plenty of it and chips/salad, my wife had a pasta dish with vegetables, she commented that... More

Located on Mitchell St, main street of Darwin. Very well known pub and very popular. Neat casual dress is the go however at times the dress code seems fairly loose. This pub can be a little wild at times, mainly with fifo workers and backpackers. Worth trying it out to experience one of the popular pubs in the centre of... More
