We had two meals and a bottle of wine. The pasta with seafood is particularly good, if you are into garlic. The medium rare ordered rump came exactly as ordered. The pepper and mushroom sauce are very good.

I got a chicken wrap, what I received was a juicy, tightly packed wrapped of absolute delish! My wife had the steak and it was mouth watering. If you come to Cairns, you can't miss this place, overlooking the marina!

This is the Best steak I've ever had. You do not need a side of sauce with your steak. Highly recommend the mash over the baked potato or chips. Can't wait to go back next time.

I booked a table at this restaurant for my hubby's 40th and was not disappointed. Our table had been reserved outside overlooking the harbour and mountains. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. The food was as had been described to me, delicious. The steak was cooked to perfection, the ribs were superb. We had a 3 course meal with... More

This is in the Pier shopping center where there a few other restaurants so it was hard to find. We had a filet and porterhouse and they were incredible. We don't usually like a sauce on our steak, but they put something on it that really enhanced the flavor. They had a good variety of steaks on the menu.

Great food, and a lot of it, in a picturesque location. On the water with a great view of the harbor. The portion sizes are very large and the food is great. The ribs are amazing!

The food portions are plentiful and very tasty. I recommend sharing the ribs with someone, unless you play rugby.Steaks are cooked how you like them,not how establishments think they should be cooked.the outlook over the Marina is pleasant to dine in some comfort.

If you like steak you will not be disappointed in the fillet. It's one of the best steaks in Cairns. Don't expect great service with the $$$ food. It took 25 minutes to be acknowledged by wait staff upon being seated. It provides great views, however, don't be in a hurry.

We arrived in Cairns and after checking in wanted to find a nice restaurant to spend the evening...what we didn't realise is how busy these restaurants get! The manager was at the front desk when we asked for a table here, but we didn't hold out much hope as others were being told a 2hour wait (for slightly larger parties... More
