we always take visitors here to eat, food is always scrumptious. weekends we take the grandkids to Jezzine walkways and either breakfast or lunch there depending on the time . To sit back and look at the oean view, watch people enjoying the beautiful rockpool makes for a great atmosphere and most enjoyable time.

We visited here on the weekend for a late breakfast...2nd time in four months. Great food, great prices, amazing service. Everyone was lovely but Jess waited on our table and she was amazing. A genuine smile, happy, nothing was too much trouble and if I were hiring, I'd take her on in a heartbeat. Thanks to all, but Jess, you... More

We ordered the fish for four people. What great value. It is served with loads of chips and calamari and a piece of fish for four people. We also ordered a side salad each even though it does come with a small salad. The setting is amazing and the staff were welcoming and efficient. One of the best views on... More

Although the service girls were friendly and helpful it didn't make up for the below par food in taste and looks. Chips were oily and soggy and the fish was just about the same. Partner had grilled which saved from the oil but was tasteless. For a town that is coastal you'd hope for better seafood.

Have eaten here twice recently showing Townsville to friends. Location is stunning and beautiful set up to restaurant. Lunch one day was Barramundi Tacos, delicious and light. Breakfast another day was Buckwheat crepes - amazing. Most staff were friendly and helpful but some need a little people skills practice. Enjoyed the experience overall and would definitely go back.

At the end of Strand is restaurant called Fish Inn. It's located very nicely next to salt water pools so the views are very nice. Menu contains mostly seafood which is a good thing. Portions were quite nice, tasted fresh and were well made. Pricing was bit high! Service was adequate! Although the food came quickly, other portions were totally... More

Staff hanging about doing nothing, but service was terrible. Waited 1/2 hour for a simple lunch, but the restaurant was not busy. Glass of wine ... $11. Seriously disgraceful. Go to a cafe or pub. While there, another nearby table had a major confrontation with staff over the quality of the food on a platter for 2. But the view... More

G'Day Peter and Thanks for your feedback. As far as I am aware we had a very busy lunch and hence there was a bit of a wait as we have regular bookings for large tables and encourage bookings all the time. As for the $11 glass of wine we pride ourselves on our wine selection and we also have... More
