Crazy Acres Mango Farm & Cafe
If you are travelling to Litchfield National Park on your trip to Darwin, then stop off at Crazy Acres along the way. The café uses lots of home grown produce for the dishes, and you can enjoy a fantastic mango smoothie or ice cream. There is also a spring where people can go for a swim, an excellent way to relax after some delicious food and affordable prices.
Alley Cats Patisserie
If your Darwin accommodation apartments, hotel, or hostel is close to the waterfront then you will not be too far away from Alley Cats. You will find many delicious loaves of bread and pastries for sale here, and it is easy to find as you only need to follow the pleasant smell that comes from the shop. You can also dine in the sister café inside called The Rabbit Hole.

If you fancy some delicious South East Asian food, then a visit to Chow Vietnamese restaurant is a must if you are in the area of the waterfront. Other than tasty food from Asia on offer, there are also drinks including beers from Asia, the perfect way to refresh your taste buds while you enjoy a pleasant afternoon. All of that beautiful food and drink is also not going to break the bank, which makes it an even more enjoyable experience when you decide to visit.
Manoli’s Greek Taverna
Manoli’s is located on Smith Street, not too far from the waterfront. The menu is packed full of choices containing simple flavours and fresh produce, and they like to create a dining experience in the style of authentic Mezethes. Since opening in 2009 the tavern has gone from strength to strength, with accolades won along the way such as the 2011 AHA NT Harbottle On Premise Award for Best Specialty Cuisine Restaurant.
Another hidden gem in Darwin is Sari Rasa, which is located tucked away down a corridor with tax agents and massage shops as neighbours. You will have to get there early at lunchtime as even though it is hidden away, it is a trendy lunchtime destination. They close in the early afternoon which is one drawback about this restaurant, and they are also not open on a weekend which is another. However, the food is fantastic, and so are the prices, so you will not be disappointed when you take the time to search out Sari Rasa.
Darwin should be in everyone’s list of destinations. The rich and cultural diversity depicted in Darwin restaurants alone will bring you an experience worth remembering.
