On our recent trip to Cairns we ate here twice - lunch both days. Fridays they were advertising Lobster Special so we had to go back on a Friday!! Their Fettucine Marinara was huge and delicious, loaded with seafood and not swimming in sauce - just enough to flavour the pasta. My husband had the Fish Burger - another big... More

Don't buy the Currie it cost $25 and the portion was so small, my niece s kids meals were bigger,$10 and the Indian manager was very rude, but the waitstaff were better they offered me another meal solution. We always come here. NOT anymore it's getting worse. Trinity beach tavern is better not as expensive and better menu and good... More

Fabulous venue, over the water and friendly, helpful staff, even though there were just two waiters for food & beverage for the entire restaurant. Food was slow to arrive and while the T bones were tasty and tender the other two meals were disappointing. The South Australian whiting was not as described. The fish was squat and wide, overcooked and... More

This club was an accidental find for us but glad we stopped in. The deck overlooking the water was a wonderful place to relax and soak up some sun with a beer. Very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful explaining to us how the new TAB system worked. Will be back.

We had 5 for lunch on a typical sunny winters day in Cairns - we ordered steaks and fish mostly which was enjoyed by all. The service is quick and friendly and the scenery stunning - we come for lunch on Sundays often as the food is consistantly well cooked and fresh! - have never had a bad meal over... More

What a great night. The food came in big serves. The staff were good fun and friendly, and also a little busy. What made the night, even with light showers, was the views over the water and of the boats - would go back there, but probably for lunch or late afternoon to make the most of the views

I have been living in Cairns now for 6 years. When I first moved here I lived just down the road. When you first get there you just can't help but say wow, this is why I moved to Cairns. You then order a beer and it's warm. I know locals that call ahead and tell the staff to put... More

I asked for a jug of water, it never came, asked for no salad with the kids meal it came with salad, asked for a vodka, lime and soda... More

We had a nice evening at this restaurant on the deck with views of the marina. Shared an entree of calamari which was very nice. Had the fish of the day (blue salmon) as a main and really enjoyed it. The fish is very fresh and cooked well however we thought the portions were quite big and the sides were... More
