“Delightful to your tastebuds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

I had the seafood pasta and it was great. The service was pleasant and prompt like most service along the Esplanade in Cairns. Prices are high but no different than the rest of the city.

“Delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

Dined here as a couple on Monday 21/7. The view here is amazing. We were seated before 630pm and so received 15% off. The maître de (a pretty blonde Emma Freedman lookalike) and our waiter (a tall good looking man with a man-bun) were both friendly and helpful. We had garlic bread as an entree, fish and chips and Cajun thread fin as mains. All were delicious. The threadfin was light and super fresh, probably my favourite meal of the whole trip. I also had the passion fruit mojito which was amazing. All in all an enjoyable experience, and hopefully we will return one day soon :)

“We don't like overall!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

They got our order wrong and never apologize!! The male staff even said that he's been in the industry for 15 years??? What??? Is that how you say sorry for a mistake. He insisted its a miscommunication and have told him that we even confirmed our order and he confirmed back. Where is the miscommunication on that??? But apart from that, the food did not meet my expectation. They are not consistent when it comes to food quality. The pork belly???hard as rock!!!

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Had the hop skip swim and jump to sample a range of meats and they were all cooked very nicely. Its was busy but not too busy and the service was attentive. The only issue was there was a discrepancy between what one of the cocktails was listed as and what was charged but it was quickly sorted.

Have been here both times I've visited cairns now and would come again.
