One of life’s great pleasures is sitting by the water with a cold glass of something lovely and a plate of fresh oysters. All this and more can be yours at Darwin’s Oyster Bar at the Darwin City Waterfront Precinct.
The Oyster Bar has become a local favourite for its fabulous food and its great location, allowing diners to take full advantage of the very best of the Top End lifestyle.
Sourcing Australia’s best oysters from Coffin Bay in South Australia, the Oyster Bar serves them chilled or grilled as you like, by the dozen or on shared platters, with weekly specials and even an oyster of the month!
Any day is a good day for a seafood lunch and the Oyster Bar’s Lunchtime Indulgence special is just the thing to brighten up your week. At $67 the Lunchtime Indulgence includes two dozen oysters and a bottle of house red or white wine or bubbly.
Wednesday is oyster day with discounts across the whole menu all day (11am to 11.30pm) and, if that isn’t enough to lure you in, there’s live music at the bar from 7pm.
If mid-week isn’t your thing, then head down on Fridays for knock-off drinks from 5pm till 7pm. Oysters are served at Wednesday’s discounted prices as part of happy hour and drink specials include $4 schooners, $6 Imperial pints and house wines by the glass for $4. You may as well settle in after that because live music kicks off on Friday nights at 7pm as well.
In addition to the oyster menu, the Oyster Bar also has some wonderful shared dining choices, including the antipasto platter, the marinated seafood platter, the smoked salmon plate and the Oyster Bar grazing plate. Don’t miss the famous salt and pepper squid either! The Oyster Bar is open daily from 11am until late with delicious fresh oysters, a carefully curated wine list and some of the best views that Darwin has to offer.
