Great food, service and location

Visited on the 15th of March 2015, I had ordered the Calamari and chips with a side of salad. Calamari was top notch, and the salad was of high quality. Extremely filling and satisfying to the palate. Some complain about the wait time, but it is a restaurant. It takes no longer than most other... read more

A complete and utter steaming, hot, runny ring-burning turd. I don't know how this place still operates. Pre cooked everything and when requested a different bread for steak sandwich was arrogantly denied and made to feel stupid for asking. Soggy chips, brown avocado, dry bacon on stale bun. Just a tourist trap, no regard whatsoever for customer satisfaction and no... More

I had a chicken Caesar salad. It was the worst Caesar Salad I have ever eaten. Chicken had been pre cooked and was luke warm and dry not juicy, the bread crumbs were out of a packet and hadn't been freshly deep fried and worst still the poached egg on top was completely hard and also pre cooked and pulled...

The menu looked promising but unfortunately our meals were below average. We had the steak pie and the kangaroo pie, both with chips (even though I'd asked for wedges) and it just reminded us of pies from service stations. The pastry was soggy, the filling was like dog food and the chips were obviously freezer ones. The service was average.... More

Being locals, we thought we'd try a new Kuranda Restaurant and were not impressed. We had lunch for two. Fair service, not inattentive, limited menu, food came out at an average time. The food was below average and very premium priced. My husband asked for no chips, just salad instead, he got "no chips" and was charged for a very... More

This place had so much potential. "Seasonal Fish & Chips" turned out to be overlooked I&J with Kraft sauces. Service at the table was good, but that was it. I'd rate this zero stars if that were an option.

Expecting a good view and food to match, that was a big mistake. Overpriced, badly presented and staff that really did not care about you the customer. It was very quickly noticed that all they wanted was your money not your custom.

If you want to have a drink then DO NOT give your cash to these extremely rude people, we had a cool drink here and on paying was treated with no common courtesy, the girls waiting tables were very polite but the women taking your hard earned cash had no manners, she was rude sullen and absolutely no people skills,...

I've lived in Australia for 6 years and this meal was the worst I've ever had to pay for! We ordered a kangaroo pie, the pie didn't even taste like kangaroo and it was just reheated in the microwave. I've had better pies at the servos!!! For what we got it was extremely overpriced!
