Delicious food, I had the barramundi which had a lovely citrus sauce, highly recommended. My husband had the chicken which he really enjoyed too.

“Best in port douglas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We ended up going here by accident but glad we did. The beef I had was great and my fiancée loved her duck! This was all for a reasonable price and we both agree that this was our best meal in port douglas!

“Best restaurant in port douglas - a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

No booking but lucky to get a table as we got there early before six and started with the lounge bar for drinks with $10 cocktail drink. Best food in town and the floor staff was the most professional as well - gave a generous tip and I rarely do that. Music was the classics from the 60s to the 90s. The bathroom is a must - worth the visit and would be top five bathrooms I have ever been too! Also got fireworks across the road at seven - about ten minutes of fireworks. Best night in port douglas!

“Super food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Pouring with rain and after walking up and down the high street, jumped in here. Thought it was going to be a disaster when the waitress misheard me saying 'zinc salad' and thought I said 'side salad' as a starter. It then was a 15 minute wait for mine to arrive and meanwhile hubby 's bread with his chicken liver was cold and our wine had not arrived with our starter as requested. However.......our waitress apologised profusely, put things right on our bill, and we went on to have one of the best meals I have eaten. The Zinc salad with kangaroo was Amazing. I also had the carpaccio, hubby had the pork escalope cooked as he wished without the frills, fabulous chips. Honestly, would eat here again, but as only here two more nights, want to try elsewhere.

“great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

This place is right on Macrossan street and worth a visit while in Port Douglas. My partner had the pasta and I had the fish and chips, we enjoyed both.
