Bloody Awesome! You have to try it!

I travel a lot on business, I eat out a lot, I cook at home and I cook and love seafood. Firstly the greeting was welcoming and cheerful, not like some places where it is a chore to simply seat you. Ordered drinks when the complimentary water was bought to the table and it arrived nice and... read more

I'm a Cairns local and I eat at a lot of restaurants and I have to say the staff and food were just exceptional at this restaurant. Thank you so much.

I had a delightful dinner at Splash during a tour of Australia. Since I enjoy seafood, I decided to try the "bugs". These delectable creatures resemble jumbo shrimp, but are different in taste. To me, the taste was somewhere between crab legs and lobster. They were prepared well, and the presentation was great. The service was good. Although the wait... More

Loved it - Seafood Chowder was delicious, Calamari Salad was delicious, Fish of the Day was also delicious and a HUGE serving. The only small point was the risotto was very runny like it needed to be cooked a bit more but still tasted great. Service was friendly and quick and it wasn't too over the top expensive. Worth a...

Ordered drinks and didn't get them until the main course arrived. Not sure why it would take so long but it was good.

Excellent service and wait staff, and the food was one of the best meals we had while in Cairns! Located toward the end of the restaurant strip near the hotels, we had passed by several times. Presentation of the adult dinner was beautiful, and kids loved the fish and chips.

Nice place overlooking the Esplanade and the 'Lagoon'. The Barramundi in Garlic butter is a must have! The service is amazing so is the food! Highly recommend.

My husband and I just spent almost a month in Australia. He has food allergies so we were concerned that he would have trouble finding places to eat. Let me assure you that Australia is a very enlightened country and has some of the best food we have ever had. They also cater to those with allergies. I wish that... More

Been here twice and both times left satisfied. Service is fast and friendly. Meals are good size and very fresh. Will definitely be coming back to try different things on the menu as everything sounds delicious.

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