Breakfast and lunch were good value, dinners much less so. We didn't go for a room+meal backage, so we packed our own breakfasts and had a light bar meal in the evening, which was perfect for us.

The food was plentiful and delicious, with a very broad range of varities and choices. We were never left hungry, if anything we had to buy bigger clothes when we got home from the weight we'd put on from eating so much.
The Executive Chef, Ali, was fantastic. His love & passion for food was intoxicating. An absolute delight, just like his food.

we had 3 meals there and they were all cold. I did advise staff but nothing improved. I filled in a complaint review when I left the island a month ago but nobody has had the courtesy to respond

I believe you are trying to review the Palms Restaurant located on Long Island?

We are located in Airlie Beach on the Mainland, so your review is for the incorrect location.

Ate here 3 times.
Food was the best I had in Airlie.
The duck is fantastic.
Cant believe this is a restaurant onsite at a motel.
