We had just completed a sunset tour when we decided to have dinner at Lure on the harbour right at the end of the boardwalk after our cruise. Friendly staff and great table overlooking the harbour with ceiling fans keeping us cool. We were delighted with an unbelievable $29 special including a main, dessert and a drink. Food was amazing-... More

The Lure was recommended by our resort manager and it did not fail to please. Excellent varied choice for breakfast, very pleasant efficient waiting staff and most of all a beautiful location overlooking the marina. Will definitely be back.

Heading out on quicksilver to the barrier reef today and stopped in for brekky at Lure. Awesome friendly staff with nothing too hard. Breakfast delicious poached eggs and bacon good, scone with clotted cream was out of orbit but best was the piccolo - best coffee I have had in Oz. Will return if time allows on our trip.

You return from your boat trip and you're looking for place to eat. Lure is waiting at the head of the Marina to serve you. Good (not great) food, friendly service and a wonderful location overlooking the harbour. We took the tempora trout and tempura zucchini flowers. Both good, although if you're really hungry there was not enough on the... More

We are Port Douglas residents and it is the second time we have attended the restaurant and have taken friends from interstate. We have found the service to be friendly and very professional. The food is excellent, particularly the slow cooked lamb and the seafood platter. Very pleasant sitting outdoors at the marine. Price is extremely good value for Port... More

How RARE it is nowadays to receive genuinely friendly and professional service. Respect to the owner Kelly who obviously is passionate about her business and providing a great service. We were heading out to Barbados Restaurant last night but were put off by the loud DJ and ended up at Lure next door. Intended to go out for drinks only... More

Lure is a great place to just sit at the Marina and have a cold drink and watch all the big tourist boats and other large boats move around. It was nice to just sit and relax. Service was very good and a great location.

Thank Steve C
