Stopped in at this seafood restaurant last night as the reviews were all very good and highly recommended by locals. We were not disappointed. The seafood dishes were well prepared and tasted great and our waitress from Western Australia was lovely. The wife had the prawn linguini plate with wine and I had the mackerel plate with wine -- we... More

We liked this place so much we ate here two out of the three nights we spent in Cairns. The "lunch" special lasts until 6:30 so it's a great place to come for an early dinner, at twenty Aussie dollars the best deal in town for a main course including wine/beer/soda. One night I had the prawns over linguini and... More

So me and my sis, who was up from Brisbane, went out to dinner at Splash last night, we didn't book, it was just a Wednesday night at about 6:30. However it was full but because we really enjoyed the meal here last time she visited, we arranged to come back in half an hour. So we booked a table... More

I've been dining here for 5 years and never been disappointed, the service, the food, the view across the harbour is amazing. The servers are always friendly and efficient, the food is always served quickly and is tasty and fresh. It leaves you wanting more each time you eat here. Value for money definitely. Fresh prawns (shrimp for you Americans)... More

We decided on this place after hearing that the owners have their own fishing boat. Talk about fresh! Two of us ordered the coconut prawns - delicious. Another of our party ordered the risotto. We shared the bugs app. Everything was tasty and did not disappoint. There are so many spots to choose from and most are very touristy. This... More

For our first meal in sunny North Queensland we were very disappointed, with the 4 prawn serving of our entree. The calamari salad was lovely, the dukkah tuna was average but staff were friendly and service was good.

Local and visitors can enjoy a feast of fresh foods while sitting in a gentle breeze off the ocean. The restaurant offers a good choice of lunch specials for under $20, which include a glass of house wine, beer or soft drink, early bird dinners or a casual dining experience. They have an a la carte menu and goods drinks... More
