Great for breakfast!

I highly recommend breakfast or the tapas as we have never particularly enjoyed our meals from the Lunch aspect of the Lure menu. This time we arrived right on opening and it's a good thing we did because the restaurant was full by 9 am. Prices are reasonable and quality of the breakfast dishes are... read more

Our mother/daughter weekend started off with lunch here. The seafood taster and extra oysters to share was just divine. The staff were so helpful, even asking if we would like our photo taken together. Love just sitting and watching the activity on the marina. We came back and had breakfast the last morning before I flew out. Cannot wait to... More

Went to Lure for lunch while on holidays in Port Douglas, food was an absolute disgrace, kids pasta looked like it had been sucked off the ocean floor, my pasta was exactly the same but was topped with the most foul tasting chicken and was swimming in oil, wasn't game enough to send anything back as the chef looked scary...

I literally felt being bullied in this restaurant. They made us order at the counter which is fine, but when I pointed our table and told the waitress it was the first table under the umbrella on the deck, she rolled her eyes and said well that's the last table not the first! When I order something on the chalkboard... More

Our group of 5 had varying meals from Eggs benedict, big breakfasts, mushroom valoute and coffees! The mushrooms were devine and the best I have ever tried! My friend had the half serve eggs benedict and was very pleased!

First time to Port Douglas and I found this place a bit to touristy for my liking compared to Palm Cove The restaurant was smack bang in the middle of the Marina and was quite pleasant watching yachts and boats coming in whilst enjoying some beautiful seafood. Would highly recommend the Seafood Plate for one as well as the tempura... More

I would eat here again though as its nice to look... More

Good selection of breakfast choices. Bacon and eggs it good. I also had smoked salmon omelete, very nice. Only downside, who ever ordered the tea/coffee cups has never drunk out of them. The handles are so small you burn your fingers on them, I have slight fingers but can't get them through the hole. Buy some different cups please.

The best views of the Marina, great coffee , reasonable to good food , fabulous service and outdoor seating. Some of the food is patchy in my opinion. For instance, yesterday my poached eggs were not fresh and hot , the chorizo over cooked and the added house relish too dry to substitute for a good sauce . They forgot... More
