I had bugs dinner on the boat. Bugs taste like a cross between a crab and a shrimp and served cold - not bad, not bad at all. Another plus was cheap beers. A nice experience on a clear night

We live in NSW and have travelled to Cairns a bit over the last 4 years. We visited the Prawn Star for the 4th visit, this time with locals. We were very disappointed. One selection of white wine, and limited beers. The oysters were awful,...More

Had a meal here with colleagues, menu is pretty limited but the quality and value for money is good. Possibly best on a calm night as it was for us. Great relaxed atmosphere. Vegans and vego nothing much for you

Fresh, fabulous local seafood caught for you for a dinner that really satisfies that seafood craving. That is all that is on the menu. No veg, No meat. Just great crab, prawns and bugs in a lively atmosphere. So fun!

It is not a restaurant as you may think 🤔 Actually they only serve seafood, which is really excellent. It was unexpected that they do not serve any sides. But the dishes are big so you won’t need any.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. I cannot believe this place has 5 stars. My prawns were far from fresh and difficult to peel, despite their claim they are ‘straight off the trawler.’ They were still slightly frozen. Also doesn’t help their claim that they were dumping dry...More
