The seating for this restaurant is predominantly outside on the grassed area right near the water. It was very relaxing and had the great tropical feeling that you get when dining outdoors in North Queensland. The food was really nice (good serving size) and the service was quick.

A group of about 20 of us went to Mondos for dinner and it was a fantastic night. All staff were attentive and really looked after us. The food was delicious and although they were busy that night we didn't have to wait too long. The view was stunning and there was musical entertainment that night. We will definitely go... More

We go to Mondos at least Once or twice a month to have a meal or to have a couple of drinks and enjoy the ambience and the local entertainment. On occasions we even take our dogs and the staff are very accommodating. We always sit at an end table away from the other dinners and just relax. The food... More

Had lunch with friends visiting from Sydney. The location is fantastic - out door tables right on the water with stunning views of East Trinity & the mountains beyond. The food was good. Had the whole Baby Barramundi which was quite a large meal - with chips & salad. Another had the Wagyu Beef and was impressed. Beautiful Barramundi Spring... More

I just ate here and ordered the chilli prawn linguine. The linguine tasted like my daughters child meal of pasta with tomato sauce. We arrived at 6.30 and as we sat down the host explained the table had a booking for 7.30. When we ordered the food after queuing up we were told the food would take at least 40... More

Poor service, I hate having to go to a bar to order. Poor quality and very expensive. The vegetarian Lasagne was just grated carrot between layers of lasagne - revolting.
