Had lunch here on Saturday on a day trip to the Port. Obviously there are many places to eat in PD, and we walked in off the street and glad we did. Food was delicious, myself having the smoked salmon with artichoke salad for entree and fish and chips for main, plus Italian meringue for dessert. Great young waiter who... More

On our first night in port douglas we walked in without a booking and were given a nice table.We had to be out after 90 min.but that plenty of time as we were pretty tired anyway, The food was good and the waitress was very polite and promt to bring some water.We found it to be a little overpriced.

Walked in here for our last meal in Pt Douglas before heading home. We were lucky to get a table as others just after us were turned away. Tip - book ahead as Bel Cibo is very popular. We had the Seafood Taster for entrée which was excellent (though a little over priced for what it was). The prosciutto on... More

We ate here on the third night of our stay in Port Douglas. They food was beautiful and the staff were exceptionally friendly. We did hear complaints from the table next to us about having to wait an hour for a seat, however they had not booked. I would strongly recommend booking (book a table on the deck!) as it... More

A friendly greeting as we walked in was the start of a lovely dinning experience. The menu well catered for our family. The food was delicious and fresh. The wine list impressive. Will definitely visit again.

We arrived with no booking. Were told we might have a half hour wait but were seated in 5 minutes. Everything was superb - service, food, atmosphere. Prices are some of the most reasonable in Port Douglas for the quality cuisine.

We didn't even get to a table because the wait staff members were extremely rude to us. As soon as we entered the restaurant (near the bar) staff members were walking directly past us without saying a word. We were standing there waiting for just over 5 minutes. Finally someone came over and very rudely asked us if we had... More

Thanks for your review but I must say I find it rather an odd tale, we are far from terrible & considering you didn't eat here it's a unfair rating. We are an extremely busy restaurant & we simply cannot accommodate all the clients we would like to. If the staff member stopped & greeted you & asked if you... More
