    Buzz Cafe: Loo with a view

    by robertgaz Updated Jul 30, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Buzz Cafe offers alfresco dining at Cullen Bay and overlooks the marina and boardwalk. You can dine inside or outside and watch the boats sail by on the marina at one of the best locations in Darwin.

    And gents, when nature calls I hope you don't suffer from stage fright. But rest assured that you can see them but they can't see you. Even a bright camera flash was not enough to put you in the spotlight. Go check it out!

    It is fully licensed with a modern Aussie cuisine.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely the rare rib steak... it's about half a bull and if that doesn't fill you up you still have half a paddock of spuds with vegies!

    rare rib steak We're hungry! Can't see looking into the loo... ...or looking out!

    Buzz Cafe: Popular Cullen Bay Restaurant/ Bar

    by Mikebb Updated Aug 26, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I enjoyed dinner here one evening 10 years ago, but on our recent visit I found the afternoon view of the Cullen Bay Marina better than the night.

    This visit was to catch up with a young lad who grew up next door to us in Perth and had moved to Darwin to continue his profession as a Captain of a charter fishing boat operating from Cullen Bay Marina. He chose Buzz Cafe as one of the charter boats he captain's is in the pen next to Buzz Cafe.

    We arrived early and enjoyed the view from the outdoor elevated deck. It was a good opportunity to observe the operation of this large cafe and at 3pm they were busy and still taking lunch orders. The meals looked good, and the bar staff were busy delivering cold beer and wine to the many tables.

    When our friend arrived we ordered coffee and enjoyed the marina view as we discussed old times.

    Buzz Cafe: Got to go to the toilets......

    by bushchook Written Oct 8, 2004

    The food is OK, but you need to go and check out the male toilet. Its just unbelievable. The urinal is actually a 2 sided mirror so the blokes pee and watch all the diners outside but the diners cant see the urinal? The girls toilet is special also, it has very special toilet seats which vary from sea shells, barbed wire through to spiders.

  • Buzz Cafe Darwin: Sour taste

    by Anthonyb1 Written Apr 10, 2012

    My wife and professional daughter had been there the year before and said how good it was. However this time we went at lunch time with my daughter and baby. The manager did not want anything to do with us when we did not order lunch straight away and suggested we go to another cafe despite us being the only customers. No staff came near us after we ordered 1 drink. My daughter had taken her staff and representatives to the restaurant many times but the because we were dressed casually and had a baby with us the manager clearly discriminated against us. we e-mailed the restaurant with our concerns that day but have never received a reply. That was over a month ago. It left us with a sour taste and will never go there again.

    Favorite Dish: None. Treated so badly that we did not order. The manager tried to put pressure on us to order a meal the minute we sat down. When that did not happen he took the menues away and never returned them. The only time he returned was to advise us that a cafe further down the street was probably more to our liking. We were the only customers in the restaurant.

  • Buzz Cafe Cullen Bay: Amazing Appletini's

    by Lee_Anne Written May 21, 2012

    22.5.12 - I took my sister to Darwin for a long weekend for a very special birthday. Buzz's cafe was first on my list as I have been previously and enjoyed everything about this place. The view is fantastic, our food was lovely, the service was very very good AND the Appletini's were to die for. We stayed for many hours and had many Appletini's and not once did the service or the quality of the drinks falter. Truly a great experience and not one to miss. The girls were off to a great long weekend in Darwin. Thank you Buzz's for a great arvo/night. We will be back!

    Favorite Dish: We only nibbled on food but the Crocodile Croquettes are yummy. A great entrance into trying this NT "delicacy"!
