We ate at Splash on the recommendation of a friendly Cairns shopkeeper. We ordered an appetizer of duck spring rolls, which were ok. I had Macademia crusted Mahi Mahi, which was actually pretty good. My wife had the Coconut Prawns, and our son had Fish & Chips with mahi mahi as the fish. Both were ok, but not exceptional. Time... More

Overpriced for the quality and quantity of food. Ordered a seafood platter appetizer that contained a single scallop a single bad (old) oyster and 2 prawns. For $18AuS Entere was average 3rd seafood dinner of the week in town. Definitely better quality and value alternatives exist

Always great service and freshest seafood here. A family run business supplied by it's own trawler, friends from the Gold Coast most impressed! Thanks for not letting us down!

I only ate here once but the seafood was really good and the portions were generous! Its maybe a little pricey compared to other offerings in the area but I didn't regret the visit. The service was also very fast!

Splash was suggested to me and with the plethora of good eating options in Cairns I'm glad I chose it. The seafood was the best I have had in many years, the owners have their own trawler I'm told and the quality of the food and their dedication to serving only the best is obvious. Travis was an excellent waiter,... More
