“Speechless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

Wow what an amazing night we had on the 23.08.2014. The barramundi deep fried whole was out of this world, I have never ever tried something as mind blowing full of goodness in my life, bravo to the genus who created that dish, I will never forget it. For entree we had the mussels and octopus yet again another successful dish, just amazing.
And finally thank you to the staff for making us feel relaxed at your restaurant you were all very professional and helpful, you looked after my family and put a show on for my son's birthday, what a great bunch of people. So will we be back? You better believe it, by far the best in cairns.

“#2 in Palm Cove...? I'm not sure how?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

If you read the reviews on Tripadvisor, you think wow, must be great. The reality is something else. Ambience 1/5: and that only because at night coloured lights mask the experience of tatty plastic chairs and tables, not a tablecloth in sight. Menu 4/5: reads really well, some attractive asian seafood. Food 2/5: bbq octopus salad, very small serve, barely warm when it hit the table; crab & prawn spring rolls, generous filling but again barely warm when placed on the table... where they sitting somewhere for a period before they were brought out. Mains, bali prawns and deep fried fish pretty good - but have had better (pretty hard to stuff up a whole baby barramundi). Desserts, give them a miss, pre-cooked. And when a papaya salad is bulked up by being placed on top of a pile of rice (??! what were they thinking?) Seems like a cost and quality cutting measure to me. Have never encountered that at any asian/thai restaurant ever!! Service 3/5, started well but as additional staff started working the teamwork let them down. Overall, when you are paying to $100 /head you expect something a bit special, that's not the case at Beach Almond. As we discovered, there are definitely better options at comparable and even cheaper prices.

“Amazing Live Chilli Mud Crab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

My husband had the Live Chilli Mud Crab and he said it is the best he has ever had.
The service and pricing at the Beach Almond was fantastic. Would highly recommend.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

The food here is superb. From the starter to the dessert it was all excellent. If you like seafood with an Asian twist this is for you but even if you don't, there is steak and chicken and they delicious too. The staff are friendly and the service is good. We loved it.
