Janey our waitress was very welcoming. The food was delicious. We ate early as we had a early start the next day. We received a 20% discount for being there at 5:30 & out by 7-7:30 bonus! The mushroom starter was a real hit.

My grandson and I enjoyed lunch at the North Bar and Kitchen, one of the restaurants in the Shangri-La Hotel on the Cairns waterfront. My wife wasn't hungry so she had a Sprite while my Grandson enjoyed grilled Salmon and I a Chicken Burger. Service was OK and the food average based on the restaurant meals we had during our...

Had the Flank steak which came with chips, onion rings and a drink of choice for just $19.50 for lunch, which is good value for a great location. There is a good selection of other dishes to choose from also. My only complaint would be I would have liked the food to be a bit hotter than it was, but... More

Quickly seated at a spacey round table for 6 with spectacular views of the pier. My work colleagues were impressed with the $19.50 lunch offer. A single course and glass of wine or something soft. Our waiter was friendly, efficient and competent. Everyone was happy with their choices and delighted by the calming surroundings. My grilled salmon had a perfectly... More

Visited with family and used our Entertainment card. Filet was very good as was everything else. Doesn't seat too many so best you book.

Ok, places to just sit and enjoy your breakfast are commonly associated with hotels, and North Bar and Kitchen are part of both the Shangri-La and the Boardwalk by the marina. So, what better place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and enjoy the passing tide of humanity ? What is good is the breakfast Chef who will cook your eggs... More

I came here before a birthday party at the marina. Great staff, great atmosphere, and the drinks are pretty reasonably priced for a hotel bar. The re-designed outside seating is really comfortable as well.

Caught up with some visiting friends for a drink. Wasn't very crowded for a long weekend. Splendid views of the Marina and beyond. Comfortable seating. Live music. Prices for drinks and nibbles were what you would expect for a bar attached to a 5 star hotel. Pleasant pre dinner session.

Dinner was excellent, the food was cooked perfect, the flavours great and the waitress Janie was awesome and so helpful. I had the buffalo mozzarella bruschetta, crumbed pork with potato mash and spinach followed by caramel cheese cake, my husband had the pate and the duck. Could not fault anything especially the service.
