“The Best Food Experience Ever !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Delicious meals. Fantastic service. Absolutely value for money. Have had long relaxing lunches and dinners as well. Go there every time I visit family in Cairns, which is often. Have decided to share my main so I can indulge in the mouth-watering desserts. The staff are top notch and Nathan and Rosa work hard to create a lovely atmosphere. Well done, see you next time I visit.

“Nice Pasta. No Parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Well cooked pasta in nice surrounds. We decided to drive as there had been light rain but Restaurant Parking (clearly marked) at Mecure Rockford was full once again despite no crowds. Last parking spot was taken just before us by someone who entred the resort (& not one of the restaurants) with a suitcase & slab of beer. It's such a shame because we've stayed at that Mecure before & parked in allocated parking at the rear of the resort & in so, leaving the spaces free that the businesses & their diners rely on. Still, it was an enjoyable meal when we eventually got there.

“Large range”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had dinner here on a recent trip. With such a massive range of meals it is a little off putting - however we were pleased with the food. Friendly service and a quite surprising wine list also helped the evening. Certainly a good option for dinner.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

The food was delicious, and decently-priced. Despite how busy it was on a Thursday evening after 8pm our food came out quickly and was very fresh. The staff were very friendly, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful. I would definitely eat here again.

“Best Italian in Palm Cove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Have dined here twice on our visit to Palm Cove and both times we have said "we'll be back", if you are looking for the true Italian experience then this is the place, it's loud, busy and the food is great . Not to be missed
