I had the lamb salad for lunch and it was one of my favorites of all time. This restaurant has a water view and great lunch prices.

We had a burger and the house special; the barbeque speer thingy.. Espatada. It was all very good, but the steak espatada was over cooked (asked for rare).

We dined here for dinner on a Friday night. It does get very busy here so if you would like to eat at this restaurant I recommend that you book ahead of time.

Great seafood including prawns and fish & chips. Relatively expensive starters but large portions for the main courses including a huge Waterbar Burger and Goat's Cheese Wrap. Good value kids menu for A$16 including a drink and ice cream - A$6 extra for ribs but this is a large portion. Overlooking the harbour and next to the ferry terminal.

We had a very good time with our family (13 pax) for dinner. Menu is varied and offer great value for the quality of the scenery. Service was friendly but a bit slow.

This place was very busy so book early. Well worth the wait. The steak was cooked to perfection, cannot fault the food we had, waiters were very tentative to making sure the glasses are full or if we needed anything. Do the entire 3course you won't be disappointed. Great view of the harbour.

Some of the best table service I have ever had in Cairns worthy of 5 stars alone. The food is good too but like all grills have to watch the quality their butcher gives em.

Thank Zacuba
