If you eat before 6 you get 15% off everything, the food was amazing and the service was excellent. There was nothing I disliked about this restaurant, it was wonderful.

This is a restaurant we always visit when in Cairns. We had a few drinks late afternoon looking at the wonderful views. We ordered one of their seafood dishes, which was absolutely delicious, and was served with a slice of ciabatta bread to soak up the additional juices. Absolutely fantastic meal

Ice cold glass of sauvignon blanc with exceptional food. along with the ambiance and terrific views of the ocean, makes for a great afternoon. The staff could do with a little more training in friendliness.

We had dinner here during our stay, we went early and took advantage of the early bird saving. The food servings were huge, both kids pasta and pizza. The prices were really comparable to others in the area and the food was fresh and delicious and service was friendly and attentive. A lovely choice along the esplanade.

This place although in a nice spot on the esplanade is a little pricey for what you get. The food is not bad but the portions were small, the drinks were expensive. There were people smoking just outside of the railing separating the eating area from the street. It turned out that one of these people was staff at the... More

We dined several times at this restaurant, breakfast, lunch and dinner and we were very impressed with the variety of choices on the menu and the really down to earth and friendly team. The food was fresh and tasty and the service quick and friendly. Highly recommend for all travellers.

It was hot (as usual) on my first day in Cairns and I was looking for a light lunch featuring the perfect salad. I trawled the Esplanade with my 11 year old niece and we read and discarded until we got to the corner when I remembered a previous pleasant lunch at the Villa Romana. Again, I was not disappointed.............. More

In a corner setting on the Cairns Esplanade, this restaurant provides clients with not only a large and varied menu, great service and food but, also, a great location with sea views. An added bonus is the well-priced lunchtime meals.

Brilliant restaurant right on the front. Paying a bit for the location I think as it was on the pricier side, but not unaffordable. The wine was lovely and the lamb even lovlier. The staff were great too, very funny. Dry, just like I like my wine.
