“Great food, good wine selection”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Food here a cut above many of the restaurants along the Palm Cove waterfront which can be pricey without delivering good quality. Wine selection was excellent.

Friendly service and yummy food served up at The Rising Sun! The setting isn't the greatest, but this wouldn't stop me from going back.

“Marinated fall apart Pork Ribs & Onion Rings!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My girlfriend and I recently dined at the Rising Sun and it was a really delicious meal. We walked along the beach front road trying to decide which restaurant to have dinner in. The previous night we had been to Nu Nu and the staff informed us they had a partnership with Rising Sun. So we decided to eat here on night 2 and it did not dissapoint. I odered 3 of the entree/share dishes for my meal and my girlfriand aordered the Thai beef salad. I ordered the Marinated Pork Ribs - thay are a must to share between two for a start. Almost enought for a main.But eally really good the cheifs are doing something special out the back with the marinade of these ribs. I also got the salt and pepper calamari and that also was really really good. This was topped off with their onion rings which are top notch. There was more then enough but I could fit any more in, so took a doggie bag home with the calamari for a snack the next day. Do go to rising Sun and do order the Ribs, Calamari and onion rings, just bring you appretite.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I took some friends to the Rising Sun and they just loved it - 2 of us had the Chicken Parma's and another had the Reef Fish. The comments were "why have we not been here before"!! The Food was scrummy, the service was very friendly & attentive and the music was great!! All in all I will be heading back there again.
