Start with everything in Rachel’s is Australian and not imported from Asia, secondly the fish is local catch. The scallops were amazing, the snapper was so fresh and the bugs were delicious. I would eat here anytime!

Rachael's Seafood Shack is where you can dine on a variety of Australian and Northern Territory only caught seafood. I specialise in cooking Whole Mud Crab and Whole Fish. The seafood is prepared fresh daily. The principle is to Keep it Simply Seafood (K.I.S.S) We have a range of Australian only seafood which includes oysters, prawns, scallops, mussels, fillets of fish (locally caught), whole fish and Mud Crab. Please call if you are wanting the NT Mud Crab to ensure availability and to not be disappointed as these are seasonal.
