It seemed hard to get good food and service in Cairns other than at the Hilton where we were staying. Prices are high (at least for those of us from Canada) and food and service mediocre. But happily we found an exception in Splash. Service was excellent, food - macadamia nut encrusted mahi-mahi - was fabulous, and a complimentary glass... More

We had a lovely meal at Splash, entrée, main & dessert. Great seafood, & it was really fresh. Many thanks to Marrika who helped us with our choices. If we ever go back then to Cairns, would definitely return to dine at Splash.

The food was wonderful I had macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi and... More

We walked past here one night and decided to try their bugs. What a wonderful choice. The roasted garlic bugs were simply to die for. They were fresh, juicy and perfectly cooked. The salad with Kipfler potatoes were different, but it certainly works with the dish.
