Food is great and they have delicious cheap pick up pizzas

We get pick up pizzas here when we don't want to cook. They are delicious and there's a good selection for $12.00. We've also dined in before and had a pasta and mussels with a couple beers. If you got a little before the regular dinner time you can get an early bird discount -- we have a bubba... read more

We ordered the Signature dish and we were flabergasted ! A wonderful selection of seafood served on a Spagetthi ! One of us ordered the flouerless Choclate cake and cried out "waaw" on the first taste. You should really try this one !

Two dinners and two breakfasts here either side of a cruise to the Great Barrier Reef. Good quality, quick service, pleasant staff although very crowded on a Monday night and staff rushed off their feet and whilst initial service OK, getting the bill took time.

We picked this restaurant because it was the closest Italian restaurant to our hotel. We are so glad we did. The service was quick, friendly and professional. The food was delicious and good sized portions. I would definitely go back.

Some of the best pasta I have ever had!!!! Came here the first night of the holiday and made sure we were back again for the last evening to top the holiday! Seared tuna was fresh and the soy dressing was extremely tasty. The bruschetta was enormous and delicious. Strongly recommend, will be the first place we visit next trip

I visited this restaurant with half a dozen friends, and had a great time, with good food and wine. The special seafood marinara was absolutely gorgeous, with tonnes of seafood in the dish and the pasta was cooked perfectly. I'm not a huge fan of pasta, but I ended up having this dish twice in one week - as it... More

Another of our regular haunts only to be disappointed. Passing traffic was much more the focus than actual paying customers. Hard to get a drink and certainly nothing special about the food. it was ok but I will seek alternatives next time first before giving another go.

We went for breakfast on three of our five days stay and it was great. Alice served us and she was friendly and professional. An all you can eat breakfast for around $21. Staff were so helpful. It is nicely positioned on the corner of the street near the esplanade and it is generally busy throughout the day. That shows... More

We visited recently with our 3 kids. Despite an empty restaurant at 4:30, apparently no tables free outside.....despite the next 3 groups of adults getting outside tables immediately, who also had not prebooked. Overpriced menu, overpriced kids meals. Average food, average service. Difficult to get an extra bowel or spoon. If you don't want kids, we'd prefer a sign saying... More
