Had lunch twice and must admit I had the fish and chips in a cone, would have to be the best chips I've ever had and the fish was Coral Trout. Service was great and you had a lovely view of the harbour, the food presentation was also good.

Lovely spot on the mariner. BEAUTIFUL evening meal with great staff and service. Followed up with breakfast and the waitress recognised us from the night before and came up and spoke with us. Great service.

Its a must o wander around the marina and try out some of the restaurants and pubs, all of which have a great view of ocean or boats. Lure is a nice spot with good food and of course locally caught fish, where you can dine on the boardwalk deck right on the marina. The ambience was great and the... More

We went out for dinner here on our last night in Port Douglas. Unfortunately we were most disappointed. 2 of our party ordered the fish of the day, but it was not cooked. Could not get our knives to cut the fish. We told the waiter , so he returned it to the chef and returned another 2 meals, but... More

An idyllic setting in the Marina with breeze on a tropical night was a great start after a particularly humid day. The service was attentive without being in your face and the food superb. The oyster special was delightful; an interesting sauce which did not overpower the oysters which were fresh and plump. The coral trout with chips was a... More

We enjoyed eggs on sourdough toast and the three mushroom trio. The cappachio was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

We had our breakfast here while waiting to go on a reef tour, I had the mushrooms three ways which was delicious, coffee was good and others had eggs benedict with salmon, and fruit toast was another order we had, Very good service, great views of the boats in the harbour, would recommend this one.

We visited Lure on our third visit to Port Douglas, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food. I had the chicken curry, which came out with a chicken skin "chip" a la Masterchef and delicious chilli shredded coconut to offset the warm curry. The kids meals were simple but fairly priced and they loved the icecream bowls included... More

Lure Restaurant is located on the marina with great views across the dozens of boats that berth there. We rolled up without any reservations and had no probs getting a table. A large table was ahead of us and their orders were being taken shortly after we arrived. Uh-oh, I thought, this'll make for a slow evening. We were pleasantly... More
