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.

Had one of the best dining experience last night. Ordered bruschetta and scallop for entree and lamb rump and pork ribs for mains, they were amazing, cooked to perfection, melt-in-the-mouth tender and just the right size. Service was excellent, professional, very polite and waitress was very knowledgeable on all food items. Will definitely recommend this restaurant. We will be back

Our group of 4 dined on a Saturday evening in July. We were seated inside as this popular spot was fully booked for the night, but this suited us just fine!
Starting with the the Thai oysters all round, within moments the table was oohing and ahhing as we devoured these divine morsels, leading into our entrees of panko crumbed calamari and the raw salmon with caviar. I think at this point we could have easily retired for the night fully satisfied with our amazing dishes, but decided to order mains from the specials board - 550 gram rib-eye on the bone which surely did not disappoint. By now the restaurant is packed full but somehow the staff are keeping up with every order and the wait times between dishes is minimal. To finish off, we all order a dessert from the menu, tiramisu, cheesecake of the day, trio of ice-creams and affagatto and we are done! A few glasses of wine all round, washed down splendidly at our table fit for king.

We had a fabulous meal! My Mum and Husband has the ribeye off the specials board and said it was the best they had ever had. Everything was delicious. Service was friendly and we will be prepared and leave a bigger tip next time! Dropped one star as my creme’ brule’ was over cooked and the side of greens had an obscene amount of garlic, even as a huge garlic fan I found it too much.

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!

Warm greeting on arrival, and wonderful service. Varied menu which is extremely well priced. A specials board was presented in addition to the full menu. The specials board included a beef, fish, chicken and vegetarian option. Beef Cheek dish from the main menu was Devine. And the scotch fillet dish from the Specials Board was cooked as requested and very generous in size

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!

We really enjoyed our meals. The trio of dips with the assorted breads and pita were amazing. I had the Jewfish - the flavours went really well together, however the purée was a bit salty though not inedible. I don’t eat a lot of salt so it was perhaps just me. My partner had the chicken and bacon penne. It had a lot of chilli in it - I’m not sure if he read the menu right, but it was loaded with chilli - and we are pretty weak when it comes to spice... so again quite subjective. Nice location - out of the way of the main area of Palmerston and in the Dry Season we would love to come back and sit outside for dinner. On the whole, we had a great time - service was attentive, but not overbearing, food was pretty good. It was just the small things like the butter being too hard for the bread... with a hospitality background, I guess I can be more critical than other patrons. Would definitely recommend and we will be back!! Thanks for a great night!

Salt and Peppa is the best quality food in palmerston by a long margin. Recent change of ownership had us worried but we were delighted the same excellent quality and fresh produce delivered a beautiful dining experience.
We will be back again I'm sure
