A very pleasant restaurant with good food at reasonable price. We had many different dishes and they all tasted good. Calamari was my favorite. Mussels were very fresh too.

We had a really nice meal here, good choice of seafood and nice wine menu. Service was a little on the slow side but it was our first night and we had met yet moved to "holiday mode". Would definitely dine here again.

We had the skewers and calamari for starters and the day special beef cheek and spaghetti fongole as our main. The food was fresh en perfectly cooked. Lovely staff, definitely a good vibe!

Four of us tried this restaurant on the spur of the moment, so we were fortunate to get a table. Although this is principally a seafood restaurant, there are plenty of meat options available as well. We all had chilled prawns to start which were very good indeed. For our main course we had, between us, steak, crocodile and lamb... More

First time we went had two great waiters , food was good , had a free liquer with coffee. We were inside and atmosphere was great. We went last night in Cairns and were a little dissapointed sat outside, although service was good not a patch on the first time. They were extremely busy but didn't feel as special.

Over numerous visits to Cairns over the years, and always being in search of the perfect seafood, I have had varied experiences and none of them really stellar. Until now.... We were lucky to snag an outside table on a busy Saturday night (you must book on the busy nights - we called on Friday and it was already nearly... More

We wanted to experience and enjoy the Esplanade experience and read all the Trip Advisor reviews of the "Esplanade Restaurant Strip" and decided on the Raw Prawn. Unfortunately we did not enjoy the food. My husband had the Coral Trout which was a small piece and there were loads of small diced potatoes that had obviously been cooked before and... More

We dined here twice, both times with two children (3 and 5), and the food and staff were excellent. They were very accommodating for children with a variety of children meals, and colouring pencils and paper for them. The adult food was delicious and very fresh.
