The food here is very delicious, especially the steaks, but the service is not great – although I soon realized this was the norm everywhere in Cairns.
It’s in a great location, right on the waterfront at the marina. I’d recommend booking a table, although you can wait at the bar with a drink until one becomes available.
I could tell some of the staff were very good – and it was obvious who the owners/managers were, but our waitress – obviously a British backpacker – couldn’t care less. In fact after a few cocktails we decided to have a competition to see who could make her smile first!
But because the food, cocktails and location were so good, we actually went back here the next night. And guess what. She remembered us and smiled. Didn’t improve her service though.
