Lovely lunch overlooking the marina

Our waitress was lovely. Very friendly and accommodating. Lunch was tasty (maybe slightly on small side). They had toasted sandwiches for the kids. Prices were reasonable. Can get busy and people tend to take a seat without waiting (but the staff politely told them to wait). Lovely atmosphere.

Took the time to have a breakfast before going snorkelling on the reef. The whole family decided on an egg meal of some description except for the little guy who got pancakes...... The food and the coffee were top notch no problem there. However we were undoubtedly 'rattled' by a 30 min wait for such basic offerings.... Any longer and... More

Welcomed by very attentive waitress with a great attitude. Different food available for all day eating-breakfast, morning/afternoon snacks, lunch & dinner all very reasonably priced considering location. Really good drink selection from tea, coffee, beer, wine, cider, cocktails/mocktails. Would recommend to all patrons. Thank you

We went to Lure 2 for breakfast I had the Mushroom trio both times & it was delicious. Not a huge serve so if your hungry order a side dish or something else, i'm not a big breakfast eater so I found it enough. Service was good first time, second time a bit slower. Your on holidays just enjoy view... More

We dropped in for drink after a trip to the Reef but ended up enjoying a great seafood meal. Friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend this restaurant/bar to all.

Relaxing atmosphere, great food, generous servings and reasonably priced. Variety of foods to suit everyone. Fantastic views of the marina. Seats outside and in. Good for families, couples or even if you were on your own. New owners took over in March and have made this a great spot to eat or just sit back and have a drink.

Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely people at Lure Restaurant. There were several different oyster options but of course I wanted something slightly different. One choice was three different oysters, one of which had wasabi mayonaisse and a plain oyster and something else. I asked if I could have all three with the wasabi mayonaisse and they accommodated...

We came here for lunch on the Sunday. The service was excellent we had to wait for a table but the waitress was super efficient and found us a seat overlooking the water. The prawns were superb followed by the fish and chips. Great setting by the marina.

Lure is located a the wharf where all the cruises leave from. We had lunch on two occasion and highly recommend the seafood tasting plate and wasabi oysters. Absolutely fresh and cooked beautifully. There web page didn't say they were open for dinner but they are Wed-Sat evenings. Staff were friendly and efficient which is a rarity in a town... More

Dropped in for an impromptu light lunch. Had the calamari. Friendly, relaxed service. Food arrived super fast and was delectable. Companion had a piece of pretty good carrot cake. Outlook was great. Overall, a very good spot for an impromptu light lunch.
