“Great Food and Amazing Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The location is great, you are right on the beach. The food was really yum. We had a special which was the local island fish which was nice and fresh, not fishy at all. Also, a cocktail to try is the little randy kiwi, so yummy!

“Perfect Valentine's Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We were seated right near the beach, it was so lovely being able to smell the sea and hear the waves crash. Our server was lovely, just the right amount of attentiveness but also left us to enjoy our romantic dinner. We went all out here with oysters to start with our martini's. My husband had the pork belly for entree while I had the seafood tian, we are still arguing about whose was better. For mains it was a close race, hubby loved the barramundi while I definitely felt the winner with the spatchcock. Desserts was divine, my choice of the brandy snap edged out as the fave. All in all we really enjoyed the food and service, the atmosphere seemed perfect for us celebrating a romantic dinner, highly recommend!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Had a great dinner last night at Far Horizons in Palm Cove, Cairns. Set menu was lovely especially the raspberry granita !Only suggestion would be, can we sit outside closer to the water next time. you have a great location being right on the water, take advantage of it.
Thanks for a great night !
