Good food, staff, ambience. Janet was amazing and attentive. We really enjoyed ourselves. We didn't have to wait long for drinks or food.

Stopped here for pre-dinner drinks. Lovely spot overlooking the harbour and yachts. A combination of live music and friendly service we stayed for dinner. Expecting pub like fare were very happy with great food, beautifully presented and delicious!

Upon arrival at a very busy Saturday night we were told there was a 15 minute wait on food which was fine - as we were quickly shown to the bar where we got some amazing cocktails at a reasonable price ! By the time we got them our table was ready. The service was quick and efficient. When the... More

Their $19.90 lunch deal is fantastic. The menue leaves plenty to choose from and includes a drink. Once we had to wait a bit for our dessert and were offered a coffee on the house by the very attentive and friendly waitress Joy. The view overlooking the marina is beautiful and their windshields makes having a meal a very pleasant... More

Selected North after checking out all the other Marina Eateries, and this one looked the best for seafood and pricing.. We ordered the $120 seafood tower between 2 adults and a child.. We were a little disappointed the tower did not come with chips so ordered them on the side.. We thought the tower looked a bit sparse when it... More

We enjoyed a very delicious meal at North Bar and Kitchen. Mushroom ravioli, barramundi and seared duck. The only downfall was that it took 1/2hr for our cocktails to arrive, and then another 20 minutes for entree. The main meal came out in a reasonable time. The staff were friendly enough - but I wouldn't say the service was amazing.

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.
