I Always shop there when I want to impress guests or serve something different. An excellent selection of cheeses both Australian and international. It’s just a wonderland of continental foods that you just can’t get anywhere else in Darwin.

Unbelievably rude and condescending service from the patronising harridan behind the cheese counter! Have shopped there for nearly 40 years and spent a lot over that time. That however was the last dollar I will ever spend there.

Whenever I need something unusual, this is where I head. If they don't have it, then it probably won't be available in Darwin. The wine selection is very good and when I am after a special drop this is where to go.
