“Food was a great surprise”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Went here based on a recommedation as it is near the beach. Went after dark, so we didn't enjoy a view, but it was open air and there was a nice breeze. Prices were fair and the food definitely was something special.

“Best fish taco's!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We went back 3 times over our 5 day stay in Port Douglas for the fish tacos every-time! They were amazing! The entree size was big enough for a main and the taro chips that go with were a yummy surprise.

The alcohol was also reasonably prices and made our meals out way cheaper that anywhere else in Port Douglas.
The location is perfect with a beach view; would definitely recommend!

“Absolutely fabulous”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

We have lives in Port Douglas for 4 years and never tried the Surf club until now......WHY DID WE WAIT SO LONG? This was one of the nicest meals we've had in Port and the prices are more than reasonable. We have found our new local favourite place. We will be bringing all our visitors here for a great meal. The Barramundi Taco's were to die for and the entrée serve was more inline with a main meal. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Do yourself a favour and have a meal or three when visiting Port. Buon Appetito.

“Super quality & best value”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Having teased our Daintree tour guide Rob about how expensive Aussie beer was, he recommended this place as somewhere the locals go so we gave it a try.

We got a really friendly reception and sure enough the beer was a lot cheaper. As we liked the place, we decided to have a meal here too. Good decision.

We were spoilt for choice with the menu but our dishes - calamari and salad - were of the highest quality and such good value compared with other Port Douglas restaurants.

Another feature I liked was paying up front when we ordered food so no having to attract someone's attention for the bill at the end.

We wholeheartedly recommend this place.

“A great place to be”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

What a lunch, what a HAMBURGER, yes with capitals. You will never have lunch like this so close to the sea in Port Douglas. Good service, but most af all, what a good stuff they serve you.
