A group of us went for dinner. There was a good variety of food including a great seafood selection. All buffet style. Terrific seafood. We threw prawn heads to the barramundi (probably not meant to). Very friendly and prompt service.

For the set price the buffet was poor quality as were the range of options that were available. Seafood was far from the best that you can get in Darwin

On the menu was an all you can eat steak and seafood buffet for $38. I had a dozen prawns and half a dozen baby octopuses, both of which were superbly fresh - the octopus in particular was sweet and spicy. Really great. For my main I had steak, chicken and an assortment of vegetables; broccoli (perfectly cooked), pumpkin and... More

The selection is always good, the meals always fresh, steak cooked the way you like it, plenty of prawns, oysters, fish, but if you want the chilli crab get there early, it always goes fast, the chilli crab is messy to eat but that is half the fun but you get finger bowls to wash your fingers, the table clear...

Located on the Darwin Waterfront, as the name says, on the jetty. Very good quality seafood, great atmosphere for a quiet dinner with someone special or a group. Clean restaurant, friendly staff. A must do while in Darwin.

My wife and I were visiting Australia from the United States. We had just completed about 11 days of driving from Adelaide to Darwin. We were looking for some good seafood. We learned of The Jetty in one of the tourist magazine we picked up. We didn’t have reservations but were seated as soon as we arrived. I wished there... More
