This being my first trip Port Douglas with friends I was eager to soak up the relaxed atmosphere but this restaurant seemed overly relaxed as they were hardly busy and were unable to take a group of six lunch diners without so much as an explanation like we are terribly sorry but the chef has taken ill. The view looked... More

After a midday cruise out on the Lady Douglas, my wife and I headed out for a lunch. Nothing else planned that day, so time wasn't important. On the way past we saw it on the Lady Douglas, and thought "why not give it a try". Took us a while to locate the place, but when we did, we were... More

We have been to On the Inlet a few times in previous visits and booked in again on our latest trip to Port Douglas. We had remembered a rustic and honest seafood restaurant - we were so disappointed this time. We had the laska and the fish curry. Both quite bland for what are generally spicy dishes. Laska definitely better... More

I was first introduced to On The Inlet over 12 years ago and I fell in love with the stunning view and beautiful food. I manage to visit Port D. every two years and this is the first place I return to each trip. It has now become my custom to arrive in Port, check in to my accommodation and... More

We had a lunch of calamari here which was so excellent we went back for an evening meal. I had the Laska and my husband the fish curry. Both were outstanding. The staff here are also very well trained, helpful, friendly and efficient in a very busy restaurant. They also serve some excellent draught cider - makes us feel very... More

there were a group of 7 of us, we all had great food, everyone loved what they ordered but what made it special was the staff. He was a tall quite slim guy but really helpful and nothing was too much for him despite him being really busy with other tables, he is a great credit to you. The place... More
