Pee Wee’s at the Point sets the benchmark for date venues in Darwin. If a bloke takes his lucky date here, it’s a sign that he’s seriously interested and wants to make a lasting impression. Once you’ve visited this beachfront restaurant, with its sweeping Fannie Bay panorama and magnificent sunset views, you’ll understand why. The service at this fine diner is impeccable - a big call perhaps, but largely supported by the staff’s winning combination of professionalism and Darwin-style friendliness. Settle back with some French Champagne (which is poured by the glass here) and peruse the menu of seriously gourmet cuisine. Among the tempting options are oysters, which are flown up from Adelaide daily; succulent Szechuan pepper soft shell mud crab; and bug tails that are mouth-wateringly coated in a crispy tempura batter and served on an Asian salad. The restaurant sits snugly amid tropical palms, pandanas and native fig trees on an old military campsite just out of Darwin. The site (formerly known as Pee Wee Camp, for anyone wondering about the name) was established in 1911 to protect the Port Darwin coastline.
