Good food

Good food with no surprises. Excellent service. Portions are not large which is excellent. Most of the places replace quality with quantity but not this one. I enjoyed crumpled mahi mahi.

I had heard about Bay Bugs somewhere so I decided to try these as they were on the menu at this great seafood Resturant on Cairns Esplanade. These were just cooked in butter and garlic with a few herbs . They were so sumptuous And fresh tasting. The staff were very friendly and the service was great.

Right on the Esplanade. We tried a bunch of places during our trip and this was the only place we went twice for dinner. The seafood is fresh and we enjoyed the staff-very friendly and accommodating. The Mahi Mahi is fantastic! Port wine with desert!

A friendly restaurant, bubbly back drop of conversation. The food is superb, the waiter staff are attentive and will happily assist with helping you. Specialist sea food restaurant with a nice choice of alternatives. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Beautiful location overlooking sea.

We had a great family dinner. The staff were so helpful with the kids & offered activity sheets for them to keep occupied while waiting for their meals. The food was great and large serving sizes.
