Many seafood eateries to choose from in Cairnes you couldn't go pass this one, it's worth your hard earned dollars. Waiters are great and interact well, and they know their menu. We had the seafood platter everything on that was cooked to perfection along with the fish and chips. Prices are reasonable if you get there before 6.30 you 15%... More

Excellent food, we dined here twice for dinner during our weekend in Cairns and enjoyed our meals immensely both times. The staff are friendly and helpful. It can get a bit chilly, even when sitting inside the restaurant. It would be nice if they made it a bit cosier with nicer seating or heating in the cool seasons. I'd say... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Fantastic location with plenty of sights and sounds but still quiet enough to hold a conversation. Food was amazing.

Didn't have to wait long for a table even though they were so busy on a rainy night. Food was delicious. Bugs and prawns were perfection and I really enjoyed most of my hop, skip, swim and jump. The croc, roo and emu was delicious. The desserts were also wonderful. Would return if we are ever back in Cairns.

We rocked up early! Sat at the front! The guy servi g us was friendly and helpful! Ordered beef dumplings which I probably wouldn't order again! The Crayfish, chilli crab, bugs, prawns, Oysters Kilpatrick, salmon, was truly amazing! If you got some spare cash and want to go all out its worth $300 for two people to share! Wiuld recommend!
