Our first night in Port Douglas and we were lucky to get a dinner booking for the early sitting. Service was friendly and efficient. I had a green chicken and lychee curry which was delicious, a special of the evening that should be on the main menu. Hubby had the prawn and chorizo pizza, a good thin base and ample... More

Busy locals hangout but we still managed to grab a table and enjoyed pizzas and fabulous mojitos in the lounge.

Our large family went here early on a Saturday night to get a table in the pizza lounge section of the restaurant. If you sit there on a Saturday night (not on the restaurant side), you can order from a small selection of $10 pizzas, or order any of the regularly priced pizzas. The pizza was delicious! We got a... More

The restaurant has great decor- sandy floor and fairy lights, great vibe. My husband and I arrived to find out all the tables (although half empty) had been booked, so we were sent to the back of the restaurant where there was some casual seating. Whilst this wasn't ideal, nor as attractive and comfortable as the main restaurant area, we... More

Beautiful fresh delicious food but there was about an hour wait between entree an main Would come back and would recommend but not happy about that huge wait - people who ordered 20 min after us received their meals first

First night in Port Dougy and didn't feel like dragging baby out for dinner. Tried to order takeaway but phone constantly engaged. Decided to leave family at home and drive the few kms down the road to this place which was located more in the burbs. Well it was a pretty cool set up with its casual spread out tables.... More

This locally VERY popular restaurant sits outside the centre of town so, if visiting Port Douglas you will need to get a taxi or shuttle bus to get there. It is highly rated by Lonely Planet and therefore attracts many tourists as well as locals. We booked 3 days in advance and, on the night saw many people turned away... More
