Overpriced

Lunch Menu. The Prawn & Chicken Laksa was disappointing, as i would have expected more than a pack of instant noodles as one of the prime ingredients. @ $48, the cold Seafood Platter was good but lacking in value (3 oysters, 5 prawns, 5 scallops, 1 bug, garlic bread and tiny salad.

As part of a business group we went to Splash for dinner, which I was quite looking forward to but regrettably I left disappointed. For an entree I had the stuffed mushroom which when it arrived was cold and wishy washy to say the least. There was much to much crust on it so it was like eating a mushroom... More

We enjoyed a very entertaining evening here. We were going back to Barnicle Bills but had left it too late and was fully booked so went next door ,,just by chance, we were delighted with the friendly smiling and helpful staff. The food was every bit as good,if not better than next door. As the name suggests the seafood was... More

Visited on Valentines evening with no booking, managed to get the last table. Service was quick and very friendly with staff helping us to choose, the food was excellent. I just felt there werent many food options, but what was served we couldnt fault and portion sizes were really good for the Price. We would definitely go back again.

Admittedly we were 10 minutes late for our booked table and were greeted with the words, "hello, your table is re booked at 8pm". Hubby wanted to leave immediately after hearing this comment but I was hungry so we stayed. Although my meal (macadamia crusted mahi mahi) was excellent, hubby's choice of fisherman's catch was disappointing given it was just... More

A lovely surprise dinner with my husband, for Valentines Day. We enjoyed a great night, at our favourite Seafood restaurant. We started with a serve of garlic bread, very tasty and crunchy. We then had the calamari served with ponzu sauce as an entree, the calamari was very tender. For our mains we chose the macadamia encrusted Mahi Mahi fish... More

We went here twice out of our 4 nights in Cairns and both times the food and service were excellent. We were made to feel like 'valued customers' on both occasions, though the staff were different so it wasn't because we'd been before. We found the food here far exceeded places with similar prices. The fish was fresh, beautifully cooked... More

We ordered fish of course. It was presented well and tasted wonderful. The flavors were fabulous. The portions were a good size and we licked our plates. Too bad we were not in town longer to go back the next night fo another dish!

Great place to eat. The service was very good and efficient. Very friendly staff but like a lot of Australia closes between 9 and 10pm. The food was wonderful, I had prawns (which were huge) and Morten Bay Bug.

This place does great fresh seafood! I had the seafood hot platter when I went and shared it with my partner and it was delicious!!! The servers are all friendly and happy to help with questions about the menu!
