“Cheap and nasty”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

So we went to the Casino on our last day and decided to have lunch there, that was a bad idea. I ordered the grilled snapper with salad, I had to send it back because it was soooo over cooked it was inedible so the head chef (she said she was not the one to cook the first piece) cooked another piece for me, when a new one came back it was tougher than an old boot. I didn't eat it, so my lunch was chips and garnish. To cook seafood like this in tropical north QLD is disgraceful. YUK YUK YUK!

“Quick inexpensive meal”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is located in the Casino. There is a fair selection of basic meals and snacks. If you want a quick, inexpensive meal then this is it. It is noisy & crowded but that is expected since it is located in the Casino.

“Reasonably priced but dour service”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

By joining the Reef Club (for free) meals can be purchased for $8 on certain nights of the week. These are plain meals but of reasonable quality and quantity and considerably better-priced than anything else on offer in Cairns. However, the serving staff could do with some lessons in customer service as the cashier was particularly surly.

“Best Value for money.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We ate here several times, you just can't go past the great variety and such bargain prices. Everything we had we delicious too. it's just a casual restaurant in the casino, but we really enjoyed eating here.
