Buzzy, bizzy open restaurant on the esplanade, great for people watching. Nice staff and good service. Gimmicky menu in places, but different and a good choice of seafood and meats. Reasonable bottles of wine. Recommend the barramundi with avocado salsa, also the sirloin. Prices are reasonable. Well worth a try.

We really enjoyed our meal at The Raw Prawn. There was something for everyone and the service was very good too. Of all the meals we had in Cairns this was one of our favourites.

My Rib on the Bone was just beautiful, cooked to perfection. Because there was a lot... More

One of the first meals we had whilst on holiday in Cairns. Service was good and meal fresh and well cooked. Looks out over esplanade to water. Would go there again.

Lovely Australian seafood with charming international staff. When pondering whether to try a French rose, our waitress provided a taster without asking. She also happily arranged for us to share entrees. Well worth a look. And try the French rose - it's a winner with barramundi.

Lunch at this restaurant is good value with a main course for $17.00. The food was fresh and well presented. The staff were attentive and knew the menu.
