My husband and I ate here on one of our rare date nights. The atmosphere was inviting and we sat inside as it was cooler than the outside tables. The food was horrible though. We ordered an Avocado Salad plus prawns and Ribs. The salad was absolutely disgusting and for $26 we could not get ourselves to eat it. The... More

My partner and I decided to eat out here on a Thursday night, we started off with a special $15 cocktail each; espresso martini and a fruit tingle. Both were delicious and well presented. We ordered some wings, pork ribs and the chicken po'boy. The wings were tossed in a spicy sauce and served with blue cheese sauce. Delicious nibbles... More

We decided to eat here as it was hot outside and most of the other restaurants had eating on the footpath. It was air conditioned, they had all beers and cocktails, pizza and a great menu. I had a chicken Caesar salad and hubby had lamb rump. They were large serves, well cooked and tasty.

It's such a pleasure coming here. Ita so relaxed. The pizzas are OK but the drinks are cold. The atmosphere is friendly with music and tv,s playing. It's not a loud place but a place to go for a date or with friends

The woodfire pizzas and great to taste and the thickness of the pizza base is perfect. Out of the 5 nights we stayed in Cairns, we dined here 3 nights in a row. If you are after cocktails though they are pretty poor with their service. We ordered a Margherita and an Espresso Martini, it was a busy Friday evening... More

Nice place with the perfect location on the esplanade just by the lagoon and by the night markets. They show some sports events on the big screen as well. Good beer prices.

Had the best Pizza and a cool beer on a hot wet day. The pizza dough was sensational crusty fresh and the pizza topping was creative and just a perfect balance of flavour. Reasonable pizza price .

I was septic all of this place as a tourist trap and have walked past menu times over my visit to cairns- now I can't go anywhere else. The hospitality is good, the drinks are cold and the food great. The specials well worthwhile and the entree servings HUGE. Located well in the strip- well worth the visit.

Self service, order at the bar, worked fine. Outside tables were cleared but not wiped down, had to do it ourselves. Pizza was good and box provided to take home leftovers. Good wine. Overall decent value for an informal meal. would return.

Good range on the menu and reasonably priced. I had the salt and pepper squid which was divine. the wife had the nachos but wasn't aware it... More
