Quiet bar and grill near the marina in Cairns - far end of the Shangri-La Complex. Nice ambiance and friendly bar staff late at night. This was pre booked for a late night gathering. Only food was on platters and drinks stopped soon after midnight - last drinks.... Good atmosphere and not crowded or over noisy

Pleasantly greeted upon arrival my husband and I were given a table overlooking the Marina and mountain views of Cairns. Deep sigh, lovely. Our wobbly table was adjusted within moments, drinks offered and menus provided. Upon advice that there was indeed a dessert menu we opted for starters and small plates to save room. We should have chosen big plates.... More

Break included in choices for staying at Shari-la. Wouldn't pay extra for it but as an inclusion it was good. Pancakes, waffles, toasts, danishes, fruit juice, make your own juice, coffee, tea to make yourself. Self serve soupsetc. Yoghurts and muesli too sweet for breaky. some healthier options would have been good.

We visited at the North Bar and Kitchen a couple of times, once for drinks & snacks and the other time for dinner. Very relaxing place for a drink and the food from the restaurant is exceptional. Absolutely no complaints and great service. Highly recommended

We had lunch today here with a group of 6 of us. We were served by Emma and we had a wonderful time! Such fantastic service and nothing was a worry for her. The food was delicious especially the New York Burger. Unfortunately they forgot to put fetta in the grilled chicken breast salad but it still tasted very good.

Cook Your Catch option was fantastic. The attention to our freshly caught Coral Trout was outstanding. Cooked and presented perfectly. A meal which will be memorable to us always.

I eat here my second day at cairns. The service was outstanding. I had the barramundi it was outstanding. Also had the 6 natural oysters farmed in Southern Australia. They were also yummy but they did not come cleaned of outer membrane and separated from the shell. Other than that this would have been 5 stars. Most like will come... More

Perfect steaks every time we have visited. This time was no different. Catch up dinner with friends who have also had good, high quality consistent steaks. Keep up the great work team, we as locals love the place, and the locals Bar8 card is a winner! Did I mention the views?

Enjoyed a very pleasant evening dining on fine food and good wines. The view of the marina from the dining room was attractive.
