after reading a few of the reviews we decided to give the straits a try and were pleasantly surprised. the meals were substantial and very tasty. our lovely waitress jen recommended the mushrooms starter and the tempura prawns which i had as a main and it was scrumptious. thanks for a lovely evening.

we ate here on our last night and its a pity as we would have done so more often had we known it was good. I had a threadfin beer battered fish and chips and my partner had the linguini, both were good, i would also recomend a side of the garlic bread.

we couldn't have been happier with our meal. the staff were very helpful and the chef was quiet happy to cook my eggs and chilli tomatoes the way I like them, with his secret spice ;-)

Management needs to look at Kitchens and cleaning rotes. Quality of food poor Waitresses spending a lot of time apologising to guests. They deserve a medal!

if we had not been staying in rendezvous we would not have known there was a restaurant there called the straits. the breakfast was a nice mix of hot and cold, everything you would expect from a buffet. we will be back for dinner. there is a delightful view over the very inviting pool

Great coffee and great service. Had breakfast and didn't wait like at so many other coffee shops. Will be going there again when returning to Port Doughlas next Year.
