Good Fish

Simple with good portion sizes. Fish was a big portion and fresh. Service was good but not great. Nice spot to sit, will return.

The food was great. One meal was very late so they gave it free. We were also given complimentary port after dinner. Easy to find. Great staff. Nice atmosphere. If you are in Cairns, try Splash.

A great place to grab a bite and some beers! Their bruschetta was really good, as are their salads. Staff was friendly and attentive.

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. Service was good.

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
