“Good casual dining, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

I visited for an early dinner and was able to grab a prime spot just inside the front windows - lovely ocean view!

The service was friendly although the waitress seemed run off her feet when I was there. She was new but very friendly and helpful.

I ordered the duck spring rolls and the hand cut chips. The rolls were nice enough but not the best I've had. The chips were
good.

“An Easy Place For A Lazy Sunday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It has casual ambience with yummy food, great wine and helpful staff. Great value and the outside dining is gorgeous becuase you have views of the Coral Sea and "Scout Hat Island".

“Great Cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Order the Mango Tango cocktail and you will not be disappointed. The service here is fast and efficient and even if it wasn't, you can day dream while looking at the ocean through the palm trees of Palm Cove.
