Darwin is a city of contrasts. And this place epitomises that. Beautiful location for the Darwin sunset. Absolutely zero ambience exuded by the restaurant. No coffee even. But simply the best fish in Darwin. On balance ... you'd go elsewhere for the trappings of fine...More

Came past one night as I'd never been here. Wasn't sure what to order, so asked for the owner's recommendations; threadfin, which I happily chose. He also helped with the servings for other bits such as chips and seafood sticks. The best part was how...More

This place is a dive. You couldn't pay me to eat there again. The owner is obnoxious and very rude. Shouldn't be in the customer service business. The food is poor. Fish is so full of oil it sticks to the paper. I doubt it's...More

Got here in time to watch sunset and what a crowd. Had to queue for about 15 minutes to order barramundi and chips and then another 30-40 for it to be ready. WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT. Tables are at a premium but there is...More

We were recommended to visit La Beach so we're expecting something pretty good, unfortunately it was not to be. The chips tasted like they were recooked time after time and not even sure they were potatoes. The fish was marginally better but still not very...More

Beautiful fish, crisp yummy chips and the best home made tartare sauce I have tasted. All with a backdrop of aqua water, green grass and palm trees. What more could you ask for, a friendly owner.

I loved it when it was a full ala carte restaurant. But I have gone even more frequently since it became a purely Fish And Chips out of Paper place. Head in before sunset, get the fish of the day (ask the owner what he...More

Don't come here if you want a flash restaurant, because it's not very flash. However, if you want really fresh and tasty fish, and basic but very fresh salads, then this is the place for you. The view from the outdoor eating area is great....More

I am sure the option is there, how about grilled fresh fish and a beaut side salad? I don't have a gluten issue so I don't need to look for that style of food. The view is relaxing and gluten free.
