Best Steak in Cairns

You will find this is where the locals come. It has and will always be the best place for a steak that will literally melt in your mouth. Try and get a table outside with a view of the marina

Nice position on the waterfront. Great steaks, cooked exactly right between medium and well done. Very good Creme Brulee dessert, solid wine list.

Best ribs!! Great location for night dining. Make sure you make a booking as it can get booked out quickly and you will end up eating very late at night.

Have eaten at this restaurant many times and have never had a bad meal!! From steak to fish to lamb, the food is superb! It is on the pricier side of meals but well worth the cost! The restaurant is always busy and the staff are great! Drinks range is also a plus as there are some nice wines on... More

Had lunch at the Waterbar and found the food to be quite tasty and a great selection with good choice of beverages. Pity the parking is not as easy
