As a local I often bring families, friends and work colleagues up to PD it's the first time I've been to Lure and probably the last. The staff were slow, rude and an embarrassment to the Far North. As our server was an English girl I can only presume they are all backpackers. It could be a gold mine with... More

Really great salmon bruschetta, great location prices pretty good. Just gotta work on the service get that right and you will have everybody raving about the place. Staff are so slow , chat a lot, walk without purpose & direction. We will all return for tapas.

The most disgusting and disrespectful service I have ever encountered. Coming from a hospitality background it is unfathomable how they are still in business with a manager who is incompetent and rude to the point of telling me to “shh” and picked a fight and made it personal. Never have I ever felt so victimised by a dining experience after... More

Went to Lure on Friday night after a lot of nearby places were booked out. It was just what we were looking for after a long day, good food at a reasonable price.

Our family was here for the Tapas/ Happy Hour. Our food order was lost and finally arrived after several different staff went to 'check with the kitchen' and long after our drinks were finished. The food was ok but nothing special and we were not offered a complimentary drink or even an extra serve of fries. I understand that orders... More

We had lunch at lure as a group of 4 adults and 2 kids. We were seated right away and drinks orders taken, I had a piña colada cocktail which arrived in a really cool coconut shell with tropical decorations. We had the crab salad, calamari rings and steak sandwiches, the crab salad was absolutely delicious and a steal for... More

At 5.40 we ordered drinks from the counter an these arrived quickly. However we were told that the kitchen were not preparing any more snacks and we would need to wait til 6:00 pm to order food from... More

Unfortunately was only open some nights though open all meals throughout the day. Located on the Marina Mirage which of itself is fairly run down, this restaurant was a pleasant surprise and is suitable for families and couples alike. Beautiful setting next to the boats and beach. Great children's menu which whilst $12, was a good size serve for my... More

We recently visited this restaurant for lunch. We both ordered the fresh tiger prawns. There were a couple of large fresh looking prawns but overall the majority were soft, dull in colour and tasteless. When the waitress collected our plates she how our prawns were, we told her we were disappointed. She returned about 5 mins later and told us... More
