Good family pizza

We dined here with our young children during our stay and Pizza's were great. It's in a good central location, raised above the street and service was also good. We had the Pizza but menu was quite extensive and all the food that came out of the kitchen looked good.

This restaurant is mine and My wife's favourite in Port Douglas. We go there at least once every time we go to port. It is in an excellent location elevated above the Main Street. The food is amazing each and every time. Is a little pricey if you want to go three course with a few drinks but it's worth... More

My friend and I went out for some lunch and cocktails, and we're not at all disappointed. The food was delicious and the cocktails were amazing. Not to mention the staff were very nice and well mannered! Will be returning there for sure and would highly recommend.

This restaurant has a prime site on Macrossan street, elevated from the street with inside and outside eating areas cooled by overhead fans. On every visit the food has been delicious but service is questionable. On our recent visit our waitress was totally non chalant, brought mains with starters and waited for us to clear the table for her, so... More

We thought that this looked like a nice place from the menu and decor but were very disappointed. The service was complacent and all the staff looked bored and disinterested. The food was below average. We wouldn't go back.

We decided on a Mother's Day lunch in Port Douglas as a change from Cairns and liked the sound of this restaurant's menu. Both my husband and I ordered the reef fish and chips which were excellent followed by desserts of Tiramisu and Flourless Chocolate cake both equally delicious.... compliments to the chef! However, the servers seems uninterested, never got... More

Food great and a good selection. However if it is busy in town you may be pushed to finish meal so they can turn the table over.

Loved our dinner here, we shared a few entrees to give us more variety. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented, great elevated location but still has open air feel. They offer a great 2 course lunch deal but unfortunately we didn't have time this stay to try it. Would definitely go there again next visit to Port Douglas.
