Maybe we were biased as we were totally in love with Port Douglas but this restaurant was recommended and it certainly didn't disappoint. Excellent range of food, Asian dishes, fish in abundance as you would expect, Aussie friendliness, relaxed dining, great location, just fab!

On a day trip to Port Douglas while on a cruise, we were craving a really good meal, preferably fresh seafood and a chance to spoil ourselves a bit. We certainly came to the right place!! Sashimi, coral trout and their amazing laksa along with a couple of ice cold beers and a lovely rose wine. Ah, we were in... More

Make yourself a promise and book in for dinner. Don't worry about trying to see George the Groper but rather go for the cocktails then stay on for dinner as you will not be disappointed. The only problem was that I had a huge problem deciding what to order as I loved all on offer.

We really went to town here. Impressed by the quality of the food and service. Most noticeable was that they were simultaneously serving fine dining and children's groups without fuss. Noise wasn't an issue either. There was food for all budgets. Very good.

Have been here a few times now over the years it's not fancy but the food and service is very much so. Great family atmosphere and the groper make it worth while going early to get a look if you lucky!

Great down to earth staff, and a great relaxing spot right on the harbour inlet. Top quality meals, but the standouts were the Sashimi plate, Sri Lankan fish curry, and Whole Fried Coral Trout. Still dreaming about that Coral Trout....... zzzzzzzzzz

There were 10 of us and all meals were fabulous. Everyone had entrees and there were mixes of seafoods & their specialty dishes on the night, I had their fish curry it was spectacular. Very reasonable prices for their dishes. Great atmosphere and staff were very attentative. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

Really attentive service to begin with indicated we were in for a good evening. The food was excellent - good choice of local seafood. Beware though - big portions! Lovely ambience down in the waters edge. Highly recommended

A farewell dinner for friends leaving town was enjoyed on a lovely mild Port Douglas evening. My husband and I shared a Whole Crispy Crimson Snapper with Thai Caramel, Asian Slaw and lime. The fish was absolutely delicious and we both thoroughly enjoyed a very generous platter of fish. I'll definitely return if I can find out when they have... More
