Apparently there has been 2 "THE KITCHEN" at port douglas, the one I went to is located at the surf club, not on the main street. I could write thousands of words praising "THE KITCHEN" @ the life saving club, but I will try and keep it brief. The best service, the best atmosphere, the best value, the best outlook... More

This restaurant is run by a very competent husband (Chef) and wife (front of house) team with international experience and their food reflect this experience. All meals are prepared using fresh produce and are extremely tasty. This restaurant is located at the Port Douglas Surf Club on Four Mile Beach, probably the best location in town.

We had lunch at the Kitchen when we first arrived in Port Douglas as our room wasn't ready. Lunch was great, with good service. We've just been back for dinner this evening. Staff were completely different to our lunchtime experience, and we're equally good. Food also a good quality and an interesting blend and choice on the menu. The Kitchen... More

Me and my partner were staying in carins and decided to take a day trip to the port, upon arrival we noticed that it was quite a small place so we decided to just eat at the first place we came across, lucky for us it was 'The Kitchen'. It's right on the water front which was nice, we ordered... More

We were walking back from the beach and came across this small cafe - run by the local life-saving club - which we thought would have some standard fare for a quick lunch. The menu was more extensive than we anticipated and the Tempura Prawn Sushi was both generous and delicious. My husband had the "bucket of cooked prawns" of... More

My husband and I were very pleased with our meals last evening. The Kitchen uses unusual food combinations that work very well and our meals were delicious. We wish we had found this place earlier in the week.

Didn't expect much from here - we came here for a late lunch, as most other places seemed like they had finished up lunch service for the day. We were blown away by how good it was - we ordered wonderful garlic prawns, tasty mushroom arancini, salt and pepper squid and a garlic and cheese pizza. All items were served... More

View of the water while eating delicious food and listening to soft music.....pretty nice. Everything coming out of the kitchen looks like a work of art.

By far the best breakfast we had in Port Douglas was served to us here. After trying two other places on previous days we were thankful for place that offered campos coffee - the best! And service with a smile as well as good quality produce offered on a range of menu items. Do yourself a favour and go straight... More
