First class food, wine and service. Both for lunch and dinner. Overlooking Macrossan Street. Pasta to die for. Best prawns ever.

We had their lunch special: two courses for $29. Lovely! It's a great location; overlooking the main street. Service was excellent too.

Whilst the main meals were quite nice, volume and taste we found the deserts to be overpriced and ordinary. $11-00 for a glass of wine is bearable the "tap water" ( we were offered mineral water at a cost ) was surprisingly chloriney. We stayed 200mtrs from the restaurant on the opposite side of Macrossan and the water there was... More

Lovely introduction to Port Douglas dining. The food was superb and the service was excellent, friendly, fast and nothing was too much trouble. The others at the table had seafood and really enjoyed it. I had the handmade Pappardelle, highly recommended. Overall a lovely dining experience.

My wife, daughter and I stopped here for a meal on our first night in PD and were pleasantly surprised. The prices might seem a little high and the barramundi portions a little small, but it had nice atmosphere and was just what we needed after a day of travel

A beautifully appointed setting. We sat in the open air on a beautiful evening. A great, easy to read menu with enough options to choose from. Pretty handy wine list too and lovely, efficient and unobtrusive waitresses on the night we were there.

The food was quite nice. Both my friend and I had wished we'd gotten pasta however. The desserts on the other hand were very delectable and I highly recommend to anyone dining there.

Well..should of just gone to Coles and treated ourselves to the deli section. Every item on the antipasti platter was either from a jar or a can. Where's the passion? At least chargrill your own capsicum, or cure your own salmon. Not saying this was a awful experience, but chefs, where's your skills at!? Put down the can opener and... More

Where's the Passion Chef Bryden? Whilst I would love to cure my own salmon & make my own cheeses there isn't enough time in the day & while I can source great products through quality national & international suppliers I will, so please refrain from writing WAFFLE in your review like your are a GURU of Cuisine.
