Beer, wine, food. That just about sums up the order of the day at this Darwin restaurant and bar, an unmissable art deco-style temple to good libations and down to earth dining on the corner of Smith Street and Bennett Street in the CBD. Besides the great range of drinks and fantastic food – the whole grilled fish comes highly recommended and is one of the new chef’s specialties – Rorkes is also a destination for all sorts of events, from live music to ping pong championships and DJ sets. Don’t forget that Rorkes puts on a mean ‘Rorkes Recovery’ Sunday special, with discount bloody marys to help you face yet another day of … beer, wine, food.
Fabulous food and great service - genuinely friendly staff. Love the rooftop experience too. There are often incentives and freebies so it is very easy to settle in for a while.
Great service, enough chat time in between entree and main. Food was yummy, big servings. Entree serving of mussels was massive! Tables a little bit too close together however lunch wasn’t that busy so it wasn’t an issue today.
