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.

Splash wins again! Lovely fresh seafood, great service and even a nice view. One of my favourite places in Cairns and it's nice to see they catch most of their own seafood products. See you guys again soon!!

We thought we would like a nice seafood meal do we tried Splash, well it didn't make much of a splash with us. While the food was acceptable it certainly wasn't what l expected at the price we were charged. We shared a main and ordered an entree each, cost almost $100. The staff were very attentive, other diners food... More

I read reviews that this is a great restaurant for families. However, we went in and I asked if we could sit inside and the waiter replied with a rude and blunt 'no you can't' so we sang down. We waited until he was done with serving another customer. We were ready to order and called him over, we asked... More

Splash Restaurant located on the busy Cairns Esplanade is a great place to relax, enjoy the spectacular sea view and indulge in some delicious seafood. The staff are friendly and attentive and the service was quick despite being busy. We dined on New Years Eve for a late lunch after arriving in Cairns. They normally have a specials board at...

Cairns is expensive, small and a bit of a tourist trap. This makes most of places to eat average and incredibly expensive. If you are not a backpacker and toy are looking for a pleasurable food experience then this is the place to go. Cheaper than similar restaurants in the marine, Splash serves honest fresh and inventive fish dishes. If... More

I'll keep it brief. Ordered an Entree and Main for two of us. It was not a busy Tuesday. Waited some time, when the main arrived we asked what happened to the entree'. They had forgotten them and asked if we wanted them next. Served by a backpacker who had obviously very little training. We also sat with empty glasses... More
