Great value lunch

Had a lovely chicken risotto for lunch which came with a glass of house wine all for $20. I thought that was very reasonable especially when you can pay $8 just for a glass of wine. The risotto was really, really good and the service was fabulous. The waiter was french and very professional and the... read more

I had dinner here on Saturday night with my partner and my 85yo Dad and had a wonderful night. They made a fuss of my Dad and gave him a complimentary glass of bubbly. We had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi and the barramundi and all really enjoyed our meals which were well presented, expertly executed and very tasty. We... More

Stopped by for lunch with friends. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent, but the drinks were expensive. Recommend if you want good food and not many drinks

This restaurant never disappoints. It sources the best and freshest local seafood to serve daily. When the owner is a fisherman, you know you are in an establishment that KNOWS seafood. It is situated at the far end of the Esplanade and thankfully is away from the noisy crowd taking time out from the lagoon. We sat outside and took... More

I can't believe I waited till the last night on Holidays to eat here! The steak was so tender you could cut it with a fork the fish and chips my husband ordered had crunchy batter and juicy fish. This place wasn't expensive and the staff were the loveliest people in Cairns ! We would have eaten there every night... More

Went here for dinner for our first night in Cairns. The meals were absolutely delicious (duck linguini special and grilled mahi mahi) and the service from all wait and bar staff was amazing. It was really a great way to start our holiday and as an overall experience it was my favourite place to dine in Cairns. Super friendly, good... More

It was a busy day at all the restaurants and splash had about a half full restaurant so we went in. Sadly it took a very long time for the food to come out, an hour and 15 minutes. The food itself was average, so sadly I won't be coming back to this establishment.
