Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant offers good views of the beach front and jetty. I had 3 pieces of very nice fresh and salad with chips and my son a big hamburger with chips. The meal was excellent but an 18% surcharge on Saturday pushed the price up...from $24-00 to about $32. There was plenty of water as drinks were extraMore

I'm a regular at the Foreshore. The staff are very friendly and helpful. However, I think feedback is important. Tonight was a birthday event and our meals arrived at the table at different times. I'm not sure how difficult it is to get all the...meals to arrive at the table within one minute of each other. Can you do it? It is really unpleasant to find you have your beautiful steak but the birthday girl's meal has not arrived and 10 minutes later still hasn't arrived. I think you can do better foreshore cafe. Why should we have to ask for a meal? Why is it that we have table numbers if the meals for that table are prepared altogether. Plus the meal my friend asked for did not arrive and she had to explain and discuss with the waitress (who was really lovely, patient and kind) what was ordered. So tonight a 3/10 for service. Very unusual. I hope they act on this feedback.More

Wouldn't recommend purchasing a kids meal, not worth the money. Kids will go home hungry. Not worth the $12

Situated on the Nightcliff foreshore next to the swimming pool, there were a lot of Mums with Bubs in prams during lunch time. Tables available inside, outside undercover and outside under sails (semi cover). The eggs poached and scrambled on toast were tasty as was...the coffee. Very very quick delivery of food.More

Great food but you can't hold a conversation - Fridays and Saturdays the live music is just too loud to be enjoyed

We found our way here for lunch after visiting the military museum on a cloudless, sunny day. The location here is perfect and therefore extremely popular - the staff were run off their feet but maintained a friendly, professional manner throughout. Brunch is served until...2:30pm and we took the opportunity for a lovely, light brunch at lunch time. Well worth the drive out from Darwin and then you can take a short walk around the headland to take in the glorious views.More

We booked a table for 10 on the deck, when we arrived I was told to pick two of the 4 tables set up on the deck (5-6 seats on each). That was not ideal for us to celebrate my fathers retirement from two seperate...tables so we moved them together ourselves. You have to go up to order and then wait for even your drinks to be delivered. However the food was delicious as was the sunset. I had the lamb rack. Live music was also a nice touch. After we sorted our tables we had a really enjoyable time with delicious food.More

Great location, very average food Coffee was half empty due to the waiter spilling it all. Eggs were under poached. Balsamic drissle should be left in the 90s. Sweet potato puree has no place on any menu especially on a eggs Benedict. Best location in...Darwin, wish the food and service could match.More

Strangely, Darwin tourist information is light on great places within the city (too much focus on the sights surrounding Darwin). A short drive from the city centre and this place is right above the beach with wonderful views. A good menu, we selected the Charred...Chicken Salad and our friends the Sweet Potato and Zucchini Fritters. Both were very nice. Accompanied by a cold beer. Well worth a visit.More

This is a must do when in Darwin just for the location alone. The food is nice though nothing to rave about it does the job and gets you fed. Staff are friendly but the view well that is to die for.
