Buzz Café – Famous for it’s unique décor, food, atmosphere and men’s toilets
(yes, I did mean toilets). Buzz is one of Darwin’s most popular restaurants.
With a blend of Asian and funky tropical furnishings, there is an amazing bar
carved from volcanic rock, one way mirrors and toilet seats with very real
looking redback spiders in the men’s cubicles, and then there is the Marina
view – to die for!
The menu will satisfy all tastes from good-old fish and chips and lamb-shank
pies to salads, Asian dishes, plenty of mouth-watering desserts and a
comprehensive wine list.

Charcoal Oven Restaurant – At first glance, one would think
this was just a very contemporary and stylish restaurant, but spend a bit of
time here and you'll soon discover its quirky side. A hidden back deck
overlooking the water and crazy karaoke and mahjong nights give this restaurant
a fun, kitsch edge. The food is rather impressive too with delightful dishes on
offer such as the chicken in pandan leaves; fresh mud crabs and chilli bug
tails; or the charcoal roasted duck salad. Finish the night off with a hard and
fast game of mahjong.
