Excellent location, food is good and in good quantity. Average price for our dishes (salads, chicken curry) was about 17 AUD per dish. A French waitress was an advantage.

We had our first dinner there after our arrival in Cairns. The food is ok, nothing special. The waitress is warm and attentive.

Very welcoming staff and owner. Eggs Benedict was excellent. Coffee good too. The location is superb. Opposite the lagoon on the Esplanade.
