Liked outdoorsetting at the wharf, but Your Lemon and Lime Tart With Berry compote was tasteless NO lemon and lime taste at all. Your beef burger was as tough as old boots that included the roll as well. The girls serving were rather slow. Girls should of course, as part of being a waitress, look at their aprons they wear...

We thought we'd drive to Port Douglas from Cairns to see how the other half live. Having heard about it being a 'Millionaire's Playground' we were under no illusions as to whether we could afford to eat there. The first surprise is that Port Douglas in not a 'Millionaire's Playground', in fact it is a very pleasant and reasonably priced... More

This restaurant overlooks the marina at Port Douglas and is one of the key attractions of the restaurant. The menu is modern Australian with a bent towards seafood. We went there for lunch on a glorious sunny day when the marina was at its best. There were 5 of us and we had the prawn linguini, the calamari and the... More

Requested a seat outside for lunch on a quiet Wednesday for the 5 of us. The waitress was reluctant to do this as we'd take up two small tables but we agreed to use one table which wasn't too squished. Our 5 year old spotted a children's menu/colouring on a neighbouring table and asked for one. Nothing much on the... More

Got there at half 8 to have breaky before the cruise to GB. We should have guessed when one cup of tea took 20 minutes this place was understaffed ..... 9.15 I went up to enquire about our order and they couldn't find it! And couldn't give a toss that they had forgot to put the ticket thru to the... More

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.
