We attended this restaurant as part of a group - which was pre booked and on a set menu. Needless to say it was obvious that the 1 1/2 hour wait for the entrée meant they couldn't cope. Main was even slower, and then they got meals wrong which is pretty poor given we only had 3 choices. The food was ok but the service really was poor.

The chef showcases local North QLD produce in an exciting and tasty way. A 3 course meal here is a must to experience the flavours... loved the bugs with prawn mousseline and ginger soba noodles.... and the dessert platter to share is to die for!!!

As for the price... as there is no view, it costs about the same to fine dine here as it does in one of the waterfront restaurants on the boardwalk only the food is much much better!

Very good service, the waitress was very helpful. We were there only for 2 days, would have gone there again if had more time, interesting dishes, very nicely served. Taste was great, presentation was great, good for vegetarians as well.

We came on this website before and decided to go throw the comments...
And we were very disappointed because yes the food was very good but you have nothing to eat!
We tried the taste of Australia and the seafood platter in main (I can't imagine the size of the starter!)
And for us it was quite a budget and we had 2 very small plates!
We were still hungry after which is difficult to believe as we took mains!

A couple behind us took a desert after a main and as they were still hungry they decided to take another meal!!
I remember the plate of pasta! There was only ONE spoon of pasta in their plate!!! So okay it is maybe very good but 35 dollars for one spoon of pasta! You should be kidding!

When we spoke with the employees they were not very nice and said that what is written on trip advisor was only lie!
I can swear now that is not lies!!!!

So yes it is very good but for less than 200 dollars you will still be hungry!

We booked for a table of 6 through internet as it was recommended by friends. Service was terribly slow. They just couldn't handle so many customers. Food portion incredible small, the pork was packed with fat ... :(
