Hope you bring your appetite, because the food is tasty with absolutely enormous portion sizes. Fun atmosphere, great food, must try if you are a big meat eater. Ribs are great, portions plenty big for two people to share. Spent two nights there on our vacation we liked it so much.

On the harbor, expensive for average food so far everything around here is like that. So this is not a bad choice since the wait staff is so friendly

We finished our lounge just now. What a great pleasure. The location along the sea cost, the service, the atmosphere, everything was excellent. The food, the drinks, the desserts all are delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the staff very friendly.

We had lunch there yesterday and really enjoyed the experience, both food,the staff and the views over the marina. Although primarily a night time restaurant,we thought they did a good job providing variety of choices for lunch. All the dishes we saw come out of the kitchen looked very well presented. We plan to try dinner there before we leave... More

We ate here on our last night in Cairns over the Christmas/New Year period. The restaurant was packed, and we were lucky to get a reservation as we only called that morning. The service was excellent despite the fact that the restaurant was full. The meals were amazing - and huge! I had a delicious steak, which literally melted in... More

Went for Lunch, not cheap, but you get what you pay for. It was brilliant. I had the Pork ribs with Chicken. Outstanding! the Peri-Peri sauce on the Chicken and the way it was cooked was excellent. Service was good.

This place was recommended by several people, but on both occasions I've been it was between 'underwhelming' and 'not good'. It's generally pretty busy, and there simply aren't enough experienced staff to keep things running smoothly. There certainly aren't enough for any sort of real personal service or attentiveness. The steaks on each occasion have been mis-cooked and tough -... More

Food: I had the Crab Fritters and Garlic Bread as my entrée, and I think it was okay. The crab fritters bit salty that make me always thristy and the garlic bread is a bit plain as well, but the Steak is so awesome! I had the 500gr T-Bone Steak with Mashed Potato and Red Wine & Chilli Sauce, the... More
