Nice spot to relax at marina

Al Porto cafe was a nice place to take a break at the Cairns marina. Service was efficient. Good coffee and nice chocolate thick shake.

Located on the marina next to the booking office, this cafe restaurant is well positioned for a quick re-fuel or a bite to eat before or after a trip. Pretty quick service to.

This cafe is close to the pier and the quick friendly service is ideal for grabbing a quick bite before your tour. The food here was generous and cooked as requested, the coffee was hot and decent. This is a great spot for breakfast or lunch without having to trek into cairns main streets.

We went here for lunch the day we arrived in Cairns. We weren't too hungry so ordered a calamari to share which was nice. Good size, probably a little on the expensive side but the drinks we had were great which were the juices/smoothies they make. Very nice location and good for a quick bite or for coffee.

In the beginning I would like to say that I am not the kind of a person who complaints. But this really got ua. So,as I work in hospitality I really care about service. We got in and first thing we saw were several tables with dirty dishes on it. Noone cleaned it. And noone served us, we were standing... More

Had mid morning coffee and returned for lunch 18 Mar 15. Coffee was only average however, food menu had very good variety and good pricing, including all day breakfast. Café is located next to the Reef Fleet Terminal on the waterfront, right at the entrance to the cruise boat tours. Staff are pleasant and service is quick, food is tasty... More

This cafe is on the Cairns waterfront, immediately adjacent to the Reef Fleet Terminal. It caters for breakfast and lunch. I had two breakfasts and one lunch there. I found the staff friendly and helpful. The meals were good. There is both indoor and covered out door dining, but the outdoor area war rather hot.

This is as close to the real Cairns as you can get, it next to the marina and you look at the boats and the hills, its also well priced with good food an great selection of breakfast food at half the price of the hotels. You can enjoy seeing the crews getting the boats ready for the daily trip... More
