Tim's receives great reviews on Trip Adviser, so I thought I would try it.

Obviously a case of mixed expectations. The potions are large, hearty if you like. I had Barra and prawns with salad. Be aware this is pub food, simple, fried and over-cooked, with basic salad drenched in what tasted like a supermarket Italian dressing.

The courtyard setting is nice and well suited to Darwin, adding to the tropical feel.

A terribly limited selection of wines and mine was close to horrible. Really cheap. There are lots better places to eat around town. People clearly love the place, I'm obviously the wrong clientele. I'd give it a miss.

Tim was recommended to us by Rohan, our fishing guide. We had been fishing with Rohan and caught some great barramundi and mud crabs. As we were staying in a Hotel, we weren't sure how to 'cook them'. I called Tim on the day and he was most obliging. Dropped off the produce and then 11 of us went to dinner that night. What a magnificent feast. The chef's did our catch proud, and Tim provided chips and salad AND entertainment. We ordered some oysters and calamari which were superb and the drinks were well priced and of the best quality. My clients and colleagues will rave about this meal for years to come. Thanks Tim and team....

Nice place. You come in and order what you'd like, regular portions (huge) or small portions. I had barramundi was very happy. The fish was fresh and prepared well, and did not disappoint. Go up to the bar and get a generous pour of your choice... and voila, a nice evening. We would recommend.

This restaurant was recommended and can see why. Great atmosphere and wonderful service. Seafood was fresh and beautifully prepared. Even got a magic trick towards the end of the evening.

Would not hesitate going back and recommending to family and friends
