Beautiful view with good food

I love this place. They have some fantastic lunch specials that include wine for lunch at a great place. You overlook the boats and when the weather is great it is a beautiful sight.

I'm not the biggest fan of frozen yoghurt but thought I would give it a try. You serve yourself with the yoghurt then can add just any manner of toppings, from fresh fruit to m and ms and crushed oreos - just great and I was very pleasantly surprised at the reasonable price

Came for a "quick" lunch but service was slow. However, fish of the day "red emperor" was very fresh. Slightly overpowered by potatoes and butter sauce but lunch specials very reasonably priced. Website marketed restaurant as Japanese-French but didn't see anything Japanese on the menu for lunch.

Good spot, good desert for its price, quite Asian style but not all authentic, still very good to try out!

WOW! Now this guy knows what he is doing. Chef Masa Yogo has mixed his long years as a Japanese Chef with classical French cuisine. The results are amazing. Fabulous meals presented like works of art. The owner says the 'M' is for 'mature' but I say it stands for magnificent. This restaurant is a MUST DO when in Cairns.... More

Whenever we visit family in the Far North and whenever possible we make the effort to have lunch at M Yogo. Over the years it has never disappointed us. The lunch specials are exceptional - prices ranging from $16.90 to $36 for garlic bread and a main. Add a soup or drink for $20 to $39. The size of the... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants. I just love the standard of the food served. Whenever I go for lunch, I almost always choose the sauteed market fish. It is a piece of Heaven and only costs $16.90 inclusive of salad and garlic bread. I have sampled several of their other dishes and all are out of this world.... More

Been here a few times and its mainly well above average. The last time i went i had Waygu fillet in a port juis and I couldn't taste the beef. Totally over powered it. I hope the chef can read this. With a cut like Wagyu its the meat that needs to be doing the talking not the sauce. The... More
