We had waited 25 minutes to be seated while the lady offered us two free drinks (which is nice). My boyfriend and I had ordered a garlic bread, garlic bug and scallop and prawn risotto. The garlic bread is normal, it's very crispy but that's not the type that I like. The mains were nice, good quantity of bugs and... More

Had the lunchtime / early evening menu which is under $20 for a main course and drink. Peppered beef wrap and prawn spaghetti were excellent and service was really good too. Worth going before 6.30 for good value and quality eating

I was on my own and looking for somewhere to enjoy a nice meal and people watch. The menu looked good and reasonable and certainly lived up to my expectations. The service was great, the meal was excellent and it was reasonably priced.

Loved our meal at Splash. The staff were very friendly and the service fast, despite it being a busy Saturday night. The food was divine - there is nothing like beautiful fresh seafood. My friend and I chose different dishes but both of us absolutely loved our meals. Great ambience, it was lovely to sit outside in the balmy evening.

The quality of food is average at best. Oysters are fine, fish was average and so was the fish and chips. Nothing more than what a local fish & chips shop can't do but at twice the price. The service is poor - forgotten drinks, even when the waitress came back 2 mins later to confirm the drinks. Didn't turn... More

What fabulous food and wine! A very casual yet smart restaurant, on the esplanade in Cairns. Even though you can dine in the footpath with pedestrians beside you, it doesn't matter. Choose inside the restaurant or close to street. Food is fabulous, can recommend the Spanish mackerel. Entree of calamari was just wonderful. Friendly staff and great menu choice.

Does not look anything special from the outside, but good food - very nice barramundi, and very friendly waiters made for above average evening meal. Recommend!!
