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

Nice location and service was ok but food was average. Menu was uninspiring so not sure why we stopped because we regretted it. Mum had the fish and chips which was ok but small, average for a simple dish. My brother and I both had the seafood taste plates, all very average, fish was mushy and gross, presentation was pretty... More

I didn't go snorkeling with my husband and son, and the reward was some nice drinks and food while waiting for them to return. Happy hour (4-5 pm) drinks were good value as was the delicious bar food available. Orders came to the table quickly and were hot and delicious. We especially enjoyed the Soft Fish Tacos, Fries, and Hot... More

We came here for lunch and it was nice. Sitting right out on the marina watching the world go by on a beautiful day is hard to fault and this place is in a prime location. However we found the food to be just ok, nothing spectacular. We had the steak burger (I think it was schnitzel) which hubbie said... More

We found this place on our third day there, after some pretty ordinary coffee up on the cafe strip of the shopping area. the staff and service is fabulous as is the breakfast. On our second breakfast there the staff were like family, welcoming us back and chatting to us about our adventures. The breakfast menu was great with a... More

I took advantage of Lure's afternoon tapas menu and had an early dinner overlooking Port Douglas Marina. The tapas menu, while not a huge choice, was really affordable for the good size serves. I opted for fish and chips in a cone (only $6, enough for dinner and delicious) plus a 3 oyster taster plate for $10. Other options include... More

A starter of calamari was excellent. Tender strips of lightly battered calamari served with a chilli satay dip and salad. Main dish of battered coral trout was a big meal elegantly served with tasty fries. The service was efficient and every staff member we spoke to was friendly yet professional and polite.

We had such bad service, we asked one staff member for a menu, all she could say was it's not my area, we found a menu on the other side of the bar. It took so long to be served at one stage the waiter bought over 2 off our 3 drinks over and left the other one on the... More
