At the recommendation of friends our family visitef Tims restaurant when in Darwin. All meals ordered were delicious and cooked to perfection. Huge servings meant 2 of us did not finish our meal though 'doggie bags' were handed out. Dine in or out and even though it was a warm night huge fans kept us pleasantly cool.

This is where the locals go out. Come early to avoid long waiting for the food. It is well worth it! Come before 6.30pm if you have kids since then they eat for free. Plates are big and full with juicy tasty yummie food. Tender beef, fresh seafood platter, delicious crocodile (no chicken taste).

We enjoyed our food immensely here, quality steaks, cooked to perfection and not pretentious. Shorts and T shirts very appropriate attire. The live baby croc on the bar a feature. It is hidden so look up the address before you go.

Had a great night here- dining solo. Amazing Wagyu fillet- cooked perfectly. Had a few extras- prawns, desert and a few beers. Went to pay the bill and he's like "you're paying too much" and then proceeded to shout me a beer! Thanks Legend!
