If you're looking for a well assorted bar, with a service minded staff, and a hot hype, this is they place to go. Try their nachos, which is the best I have ever tried. Goes well with the plenty selection of beers or their fancy coctails.

Great, cheap food there, we managed to get taco Tuesday, $5 tacos which was a great score. Drinks are pretty standard prices to the rest of cairns. The place seemed to be popular as it was always packed every time we went there.

The setting is lovely, with views across the ocean, and always great music playing. Only walked past at night-time , it looked bustling and obviously very popular with the young set, whereas on weekend nights it... More

This place is opposite the lagoon & has views out over the ocean. Food was good,in particular the oysters which were soooooo fresh! We had lunch there & enjoyed the food. Parked in the paid parking area & also took a stroll around the local market that sits alongside the lagoon.

Really liked this place, they had decently priced drinks, a good happy hour and lots of cocktail specials. My friend and i shared a pizza there (AU$15/pizza) and it was really good!
