“Excellent place to stop for lunch on the way to Port Douglas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Food and service was impeccable. Every thing on the menu was tempting and the three dishes our party chose were delicious. Tuna, lamb and crab were all cooked to perfection.

“A regular local eater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

As a regular diner at this restautant & in no way connected to the venue I can certainly recommend this place to locals & visitors alike. I eat here about every 2 months for lunch alone or with a friend. A warm welcome & delicous menu is always on offer with daily specials & new dishes to try. With several nooks to settle into & a view through the swaying palms out to sea, one is never hurried along & lunch can last for hours. This is a place to enjoy a coffee or have a suberb 3 course evening meal. Palm Cove is magical at night. Looking forward to a meal again over the Easter break...............

“Beautiful view and surrounds. Big Prices, small serves”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The main advantage of this restaurant is the position it has in Palm Cove, superb view and surroundings. Food is Mediterranean 'with a twist' and much of it isn't Mediterranean at all. Prices are above average, serve sizes are below average, food is about average. Wine list also average. Overall didn't fulfil expectations.

“Wow - Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Loved this restaurant. Had the best gnocchi I've had in....well ever! All courses were top notch. Service was pretty fast considering it was almost at capacity. If we are back in Palm Cove this will be one of the first stops!
