This place is amazing. The food was great service was superb. We had duck, steak and salt and pepper calamari. We also had their deserts and omg it was great. When we come back to Darwin we will definitely be back to this place as I can’t remember the last time we enjoyed the food this much. I usually share food with my husband but I wanted it all to myself. Thank you for allowing us come and taste your amazing food.

Cant believe this Restaurant is in Darwin!

I felt like I was sitting in Melbourne when the food turned up!
The flavours were amazing I absolutely loved the Thai Oysters, Quail entrée, Wagyu Steak Special and the Banoffee Pie completed with Affogato!

This has been the best First Table experience I have had and I cant wait to go back and try the rest of the menu. What ever you do don't underestimate this Restaurant there is something for Everyone!

Service was fantastic, just the right timing asking for drinks and asking if we were happy with our meals.
The food really is beautiful, you could not go wrong by dining here. It was a lovely evening for my husband and I.
We will certainly be going back.

When we first arrived we were met with a warm welcoming smile and showed to our table - we immediately felt comfortable and the restaurant had a very special and unique ambience in all areas and we knew we were being treated to a special, memorable and intimate night out together. This observation was spot on and as the evening progressed our expectations continued to be exceeded, they were already very high from our first impressions. The wait staff were accommodating and professional, ensuring service was of the highest quality; which includes knowing when to engage and when to allow us to be alone and enjoy intimate time. We value fine quality food and mark this as a high priority in our daily lives, which makes us tough critics - the infusion of flavours in the food were perfect and we were pleasantly surprised by all the dishes we ordered. The venue was in a convenient, quiet and intimate location. We were both excited to have found this treasure of dining experience and look forward to telling all our friends and family about this gem - we have already made plans to book for dinner there again in a couple of weeks.

BEST DINNER I HAVE HAD IN DARWIN!
absolutely delicious. Incredible variety and all freshly prepared and cooked. Entree of scallops was delicious, they were large and juicy. We each had different mains but all were cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Could not fault the service at all. Dessert was a very fresh vanilla brûlée, absolutely delicious. We will be coming back again and again and again until we have sampled the whole menu. Darwin is great for food, so saying this is the best food in Darwin really means something!

Amazing food and service

- dined at Salt n Peppa Cafe Ristorante on

Really nice food and atmosphere, we were the only ones there at the time but made it more personal and romantic. The service was great and fast. Even the chef checked on us with our waitress to see how the food was. This is our second time going here and wont be our last. The food was devine and the fact you get it at 50%off is just as great!

Always great! We have never been disappointed, service is consistently good. Menu has favourites but is sprinkled with new items. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We loved our entree’s and mains, we had the squid and the scallops for entree and then the nz mussel and chorizo pasta and the scallops gnocchi, which were all great. We then had the vanilla brûlée which was not great, it was very eggy and not lite at all..we enjoyed our night but the desert was a disappointment.

We arrived to a cosy, little restaurant with stunning views of the lake. The ambience was great and we were the only customers in the restaurant, for about 45mins so my husband and I could talk, which we hardly get to do without any busy noise in the background. It was lovingly intimate! The service was outstanding, obviously no long waits for food to come out and we never had to get up to get drinks, the polite lady was always on top of filling or ready to take our next drink order. She is the definition of quality service. Now I ordered the Chicken and Mushrooom Pasta, and my husband ordered the Beef Cheeks and Calamari to start. Food was delicious and I’m usually a salt person but didn’t have a need to salt my pasta, as the flavours were tasty and not bland!! My husbands beef was effortlessly falling off the bone and the juices was tasty combined with the vegetables. I’ll definitely be back for the fluffy crusted, mouth watering calamari!!! Our bill came in at $120 but as a First Table booking we left smiling, only having to pay $59.50!! Well worth a visit again very soon!

We booked the restaurant through first table, it was very early for the dinner and we were the only table - made you feel like having a private chef service! The food were awesome, not just tasty but also visually beautiful! And the service was excellent! All in all, we enjoyed a wonderful Friday night thanks to Salt n Pepper and First Table! Would definitely come back again! Cheers!

The booking time was quite early compared to other first table restaurants however the food was yummy. The bill was $100 but that included $40 for drinks, so $60 for 3 entrees, two mains and a kids meal. Winner winner!

Excellent meal and service once again. Had garlic & herb focaccia for entree, I had beef cheeks and my friend had butter chicken for mains. We also had a cocktail each. Was really looking forward to dessert but we ended up having half our dinner packed up to go! We were full, happy and can’t wait to return. We could not fault our meals or service at all.

The beef cheeks were meltingly tender and beautifully presented, the steak was full of flavour and tender, best steak I’ve tasted for a long time. The dark chocolate and frangelico cheesecake was the bomb. We’ll be back. Thanks for a great meal!

Sensational, there is no way I can describe the taste and quality of the food. I can not wait to taste the rest of the menu. Hard to describe the plates coming out of the kitchen and seeing what I am going to order next time. my friends have tasted the yummy food flying out of the kitchen. Cant wait to go back!

In a quaint cottage opposite the fountains and greens of Durack, lies a highly desirable restaurant. Arriving at sunset, our party of three was ushered to a quiet table in a shady indoor nook. Salt n Peppa Ristorante offers a host of unusual elegant dishes as well as a blackboard menu of specials. I was delighted to find stuffed zucchini flowers, a dish I've always wanted to try but never before seen. My husband elected for his safe faves of bruschetta with salsa topping and shoestring fries. Our daughter picked pork belly for her entree. The flowers and fries were cooked to perfection. However, the bruschetta was a little soft from the salsa and the pork belly had to be sent back. To the management's credit, the staff were most apologetic and we were not charged for this dish. Main course was a pleaser for all and the serves are generous. Our daughter's penne chicken was eaten all up, my gnocchi, speck and scallops in a cheesy sauce was so delicious, my husband requested a serve for himself. Full up to pussy's bow, we had no room for the exciting dessert selection, from citrus tart to pannacotta and much more. The ambience is inviting, mellow jazz music, soft lighting, perfect for a first date. The staff are attentive and friendly. The prices are mid-range. The menu is enticing. We will return. We had a lovely evening.

Food was amazing, they served really fresh oysters with divine Thai sauce. Scallops and salmon also delicious. Fast and prompt service by server and also the chef Gotham came out of the kitchen to interact with guests. Highly recommended!
