Most Hotel restaurants overcharge & under deliver...not North at Shangri-la Hotel, they under charged & over delivered!!! The view overlooking the Marina, spectacular. The service, good to very good. The food, exceptional!!! The seafood platter (hot & cold) is best value in town, & my steak cooked exactly how I ordered it. The wine list could be improved, but the... More

Whilst the food may be OK, the wine list is dreadful. Truly basic offerings by the glass and not much choice by the bottle. For a restaurant that has "Wine" in its title, you expect a much better choice of good wines. We ended up leaving and ate elsewhere.

Was staying at Shangri-La and headed down for a bite to eat - food was of good quality without being exceptional, but was an excellent view I do say, would be great around sunset. Would ask for a table outside as inside you would have to ask why you are there

We made a reservation at this restaurant 10 days in advance. I went to great details to explain that we were meeting people from Western Australia for the first time and having been here before could we have a special table overlooking the marina. It was special alright turns out they could not even find my reservation, I had even... More

Impeccable service, and genuinely catered and cared for small kids! Wish we had a longer stay so we could have enjoyed more of the food!

We celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary dinner at this restaurant last week and they served us a complimentary glass of champagne each. We dined on the Seafood Tower for 2 which was just amazing!!! The view was incredible and our wonderful waitress, Suzann, went above and beyond with her friendliness. Would recommend this restaurant with 100% satisfaction!!!!!

We chose North for my wife's birthday mainly for its location and good food reviews. We were not disappointed, our daughter had joined us from Sydney for a few days, and with a nice entree and the seafood tower( superb ) , the 3 of us were well fed. Surroundings were excellent, right on the edge of the marina, staff... More

ate here on a couple of occasions in the last few weeks, once on holiday and once with a work trip, and with different people each time, all who enjoyed it. I saw some comments that it was expensive - I actually found it good value for money and not as expensive as a number of places along the boardwalk/esplanade.... More

We visited a number of times for dinner as the food was much better than anywhere else in Cairns for the price. The kids meals were outstanding and included a great little dessert. Our meals were tasty and the location is great.

We ate here on our last night. My husband and teenage daughter shared the seafood platter and found the food delicious and the proportions generous. The location is great and the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful.
