Food was simple but great. Staff were friendly. Has a great reputation with the locals.Less stuffy than some of the other restaurants in Port Douglas.

Loved this place, found it quite by accident upon arrival in Port Douglas late evening and needed food so we ordered a takeaway. The pizzas were scrumptious so we went back a few days later for a sit-down meal which didn't disappoint. Go there, it's beautiful and enjoy either a fab sit-down experience or on the hop and grab a... More

We were recommended this place by Oaks lagoons staff. It has a lot of character with sand on the floor and an acoustic live set on Friday night. Not too loud so you can still carry out dinner conversation. It's also hidden away near the beach away from the main street hassle which was nice. The staff were amazing! Cannot... More

As we were staying out of town at the Sheraton Mirage, the Beach Shack suited us fine as it was close by.Our group of 12 were seated at two table, and the sand under our feet was a nice touch. My Sri Lankan fish curry was exactly as the waitress described, my partners fish dish was fantastic, as was the... More

Interesting menu without being too fussy and "tizzy"as, in my opinion, is the fashion today. Delicious pork belly and unusual, but very tasty spring rolls on the entree list. It has a great buzz about it, without being too noisy and takes its name seriously as you dine with sand between your toes, although it is some way back from... More

We stopped here on our way back to Cairns after a day in the Daintree Nice and relaxed with a sandy floor, though it does seem to be in a residential street, but there is plenty of on-street parking. Food was good, though, if like me you're intrigued by the "Raspberry Lemonade" on the soft drinks menu - don't be.... More

If you like to dine amongst some sand then this is the place to be. The pizza which was served was excellent and made for a wonderful relaxed dining experience.

I just had to experience the Maca Stack (macadamia crusted eggplant) and it didn't disappoint. Couldn't even fit in a dessert all which sounded delicious. Great service and atmosphere.
