Great place to come for a meal if you want, great food and a relaxed atmosphere.
After 9, it starts to pick up with all the locals coming for a drink, and a band or DJ kicking off.the music.

With the only late night entertainment in town it's
definitely the place to be

The food we got was ok for 10 bucks, I am glad I didn't get anything too much more expensive. It seemed like our food took forever, but we were also pretty hungry. Our server was nice but got pulled into the bar towards the end of our meal. The drinks and the ice cream/liquor/espresso dessert I got was good but the creme brulee was like a sponge. It was nice and cool inside but the live music left a lot to be desired.

Hard to find better than this for value and service. As a group of four, we ordered the $10 specials which were very tasty and served promptly, and the drinks were amazing (thanks).
BYO also available which makes it the best deal in Mission Beach.
Having enjoyed ourselves so much, we returned the following two nights and ventured into other dishes on the menu. I don't know what the previous reviewer was expecting, but the grilled mackerel was the best I have ever tasted and beautifully presented with potato, pea puree, bacon. The salads are also different and each dish we tasted was delicious. Their pizza also makes the perfect shared entrée.
Thanks to all the staff - please don't change. We will be back!!

Called into the Zenbah for a drink on Sunday, beautiful day and a lovely drive from Cairns, chatty Waiter who told us they had the best Chef in Mission, so after a lovely laze on the beach headed back to sample his delights, firstly we were the only people in there eating and thought fish and chips could not take that long, but hey chill out relax, then it arrives where was the batter on the fish - grilled instead let that go probably due to the shock of presenttion, four slices of boiled potato under the fish and plate scattered with a third of a tin of mushy peas, now come on Best Chef I can do better than that, second dish of grilled atlantic salmon, cooked very nicely but packet chips and just a salad, not overdoing it eh, so in all approx $25 per meal, not worth it and pretty poor show for travellers both local and overseas, Mission Beach has had it pretty hard since Yasi this sort of show will not help.
