Splash is most definitely the best seafood restaurant on the Esplanade in Cairns. Excellent service, great choice of menu and make sure to book to secure a place at this fine restaurant. The Mahi Mahi and Barramundi were cooked to perfection! Will be back.

Gave it a miss after hearing so many good reviews and receiving bad food and service years ago. Took friends there on more recommendations and service has improved but still a bit on the arrogant side as if they are the coolest hippest venue in Port. Food was average and the cocktails were good but always told you have to... More

Friendly service, really good food, and right on the Esplanade for people watching (if you get an outdoor table like us). Best of all, the lunch specials are served until 6:30 pm.

Splash gave us an evening to remember with the freshest seafood we have tasted in a very long time. The staff were excellent, friendly and extremely helpful. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening with friends, and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a penchant for good quality seafood

Had a lovely afternoon meal here today. Seafood chowder followed by lemon butter grilled barramundi. All washed down with a chilled glass of crisp white wine. Simple, yet delicious. Located on the Esplanade, Splash is a small, well run restaurant. Great staff delivering professional, efficient & friendly service and lovely fresh seafood. A combination that works perfectly every time. Highly... More

We had a table of 9, with only 3 adults, received spectacular service & the kids were on their best behaviour as a result. The food was exactly as described & beautifully presented. Great price especially given the prime location. Highly recommended (health conscious seafood lovers - this is a must.)

We took holiday up north expecting fresh seafood, I loved this restaurant - my bugs tasted sensational, my partner was happy with his seafood basket - fresh and hot, mum not that fused on her calamari and dad - well his barramundi was not fresh -it had been frozen. Given the girl gave us a discount, but with the sign... More
