We ate here 3 times during our stay in Cairns and each meal was sensational, super fresh salad, excellent seafood, great lamb. The lamb souvlaki is so delicious that I couldn't go past it and ordered it each time. Their baked potatoes, salads, sardines and stuffed calamari are also delicious. The location is fantastic with inside and outside dining overlooking the marina. Great cocktails. Friendly service.

Thank you for your review. I am like you when I go on holidays - if I find a great restaurant to eat at when I am away from home, I go back again and again! People love the way we cook our lamb but our steak and seafood as well is hard to go past! Thank you for the compliments on the cocktails - I will pass it on to Robyn!

Had a great dinner here and the service was amazing. Shared a seafood platter and there was plenty of food for both of us. The food came out fast and the staff were lovely and attentive. Really pretty spot on the pier. Would definitely recommend

Thank you for your review. I am glad that our service was "amazing" because that is what I want us to be known for. We are getting a lot of positive comments about our seafood of late, so I will pass it on to our chefs and seafood suppliers!

Went to Piato for a lovely father's day dinner and it was so good. My husband and I had the Greek feast with our little one tucking in too, it really was a feast, did not feel rushed, just took our time savouring all the delicious food and admiring the view. Great restaurant adding a little something different to the Marina.

Went with the family for Father's Day dinner. Mum had the Alaskan cod which was was fantastic. The rest of us has the feast. The feast started with the most amazing dips followed by melt in your mouth lamb cigars, calamari and scrumptious zucchini fritters. The saganaki cheese was outstanding. Even though we were now feeling full it was only the beginning! Swordfish, prawns, potatoes, salad, kofta and lamb chops, all to die for. Thanks to Elie and Ed for their Outstanding service and to the chefs for a brilliant meal. Loved it and will be back soon!

Thank you for your review. The Greek Piato feast is a popular choice on the menu and we've received lots of glowing comments about it. The Alaskan cod is another popular dish that people are loving right now.
