Stayed in Bowen for 10 days and had 2 meals here. Lunch was great accompanied by a Mango Smoothie. Its the best smoothie I have ever had, a must when you are in Bowen. Went back for dinner on a Friday night and also had a fabulous meal. Would definitely recommend, but it is a little expensive

Food Freaks is located at the North Queensland Cruising Yacht Club in Bowen. You can sit inside or out to enjoy the sea views and lovely boats. The menu is large with daily specials that change for each sitting. We had lunch on the terrace, with a nice bottle of Sav Blanc. If you want alcoholic drinks, you buy them... More

I stopped here for breakfast before heading north again, the lovely lady who took my order was very attentive and gave great service. My salmon omelette was delicious and my soy latte was very good and had a beautiful swirl on the top which I have hardly seen since I left Sydney.

We had a party of 14, ranging from 3 to 71 years of age. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. They got the children's orders first and served them up while the adults had appetisers. The children could play outside on the grass or watch the boats in the marina while the adults ate their yummy food. The same process... More

This is a glorious physical position with 270 degrees of water views wrapping around the building. The personal touch and service by Tiff and her staff is supplemented with delicious food, beautifully presented, and add the extra service afforded by Zara from the Bar within this treasure-of-a-location, and you have a good reason to visit this establishment each and every...
