We ate seafood chowder, barramundi and Morton Bay bugs - they sound disgusting ( very " I'm a Celebrity..." but they are delicious, like lobstertails. Service was VERY slow 50 minutes for starter) and another 1/2 hour for main. However staff were very apologetic and gave us free garlic bread and free drinks, we weren't in any hurry (apart from...

Wife and I enjoyed dinner here last weekend dining on the Lemon Barramundi, Lemon Pepper Calamari and drinks. I have eaten here many times over the years when travelling through Cairns for work and having previously lived in Cairns for over 30 years and I believe it is the best by far of the seafood restaurants on offer. The service... More

;We liked sitting outdoors watching people go by. We had prawn and scallop risotto and Coral Sea tuna and both were excellent. We went back for lunch two days after and it was very good again.

My other half and I arrived in cairns yesterday afternoon and after a quick look around we decided that we would come back to have dinner at splash. The service was incredibly prompt and friendly. Meals were brought out in very good time but not too fast 😉 We had the dry spiced calamari which was to die for, the... More

Well what can we say about this fabulous restaurant, we headed along the esplanade and spotted Splash. The menu offered a varied choice of seafood and other options. The staff attended to us with a smile on their faces, made us feel very welcomed. Once seated we were given time to choose our meal, order our drinks and then when... More

The evening started of great, we had to wait 10 minutes for a table, but received a complementary glass of wine to make up for the wait. After that we had to ask for the Menues ourselves, it took around 30-40 minutes until we received our appetizers. When it came to the main, they came with a wrong dish, so... More

Disappointed after reading reviews the Meal was nice but so small serves for what you paid. Garlic bread was burnt dry couldn't eat it. Waiter didn't charge us for it. Crumbed Coconut Prawns nice but $34 for 6 Medium Main Meal over the top prices better deal at the Fish and Chip Shop down the street. Would not go back
