Great location and views

Was recommended here by friends and were very happy we went. Mock tails went down a treat. The ribs looked absolutely amazing (they are so big that the staff come and tie a napkin around your neck!) we couldn't fit them in, so went the rib eye instead. Very succulent, had great views of the marina... read more

Was recommended here by friends and were very happy we went. Mock tails went down a treat. The ribs looked absolutely amazing (they are so big that the staff come and tie a napkin around your neck!) we couldn't fit them in, so went the rib eye instead. Very succulent, had great views of the marina. Will definitely go back!

We have been to this lovely eatery many times, for both lunch and dinner, and have never been disappointed. They have a great menu with many different options and all we have tried have been delicious. We took some interstate friends, the last time, and they also thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the venue. My husband loves the espetadas and... More

A popular restaurant on the marina. We hadn't booked and had to wait in the bar for a short time before a table was available. It was worth the wait. Delicious food, great, friendly service and nice ambience. Definitely recommend.

If you want a steak you have to go here. I eat here at least once a month, it's a family ritual. Also the lychee martinis go great with any entree :)

This was our first time visiting Cairns and indeed Australia. We wanted our final night in Cairns to be memorable and this definitely didn't disappoint. The Vanilla Bliss cocktail was delicious as were my ribs - it's the first time a restaurant has given me a bib to protect my clothes! Definitely recommend for somewhere a bit special.
