My partner and i had 3 night time meals here firstly because on our first visit we wanted someone away from the noisy busy main street eating and there was plenty of room inside. The meal was delicious with creamy tasty sweet potato and lamp rump that was beautifully tender. We went there again because of its close location to... More

Meals here are good though on the expensive side. The place was packed but the meals still come out pretty fast.

Situated on the Esplanade, service is good except that if someone orders from the Pixzza section someone else at your table orders from the kitchen food arrival time may be very different (20 minutes apart once for us). My latest experince was the rib steak, we had a total of 4 between us as rib is always tender and we... More

Good service and great food. The meals were ready within 15 minutes, despite being well patronised. Nice cold beer.

good but expensive pizza, the rest of the pub fare was also a bit touristy. chicken schnitzel for $29 when i can get the same meal for under $7, must be the tropical version.

The food is really great, although a little overpriced. The pizzas and wedges are always my favourite. Waitresses are quick to clear tables. Good service. Great atmosphere with a real mixture of people, you'll find families, backpackers and locals here.

New menu has not as many Gluten Free options as previous menu. Rattle N Hum in Port Douglas have a much better menu & service to help accommodate allergies.

Ate here today & it's our second time experiencing it. We sat outside this time to people watch & look out at the esplanade. This venue seats a lot of people but table service would be appreciated especially if you order several meals as the walking to & from can be annoying especially during conversations.
