Were most accomodating with our request for a salad sandwich.The food came out in good time, was plentiful and enjoyed. Meals ordered were a beef burger a seafood platter to share and of course the salad sandwich. There is... More

Since I'm not a big drinker, I was very happy to find their juice/smoothie selection! A little pricey but definitely worth it. I also had the Coconut prawns, which was so good. Convenient location in the centre of town.

Only one thing to say about this restaurant "THEY NAILED IT!!!!". Best seafood in Cairns, hands down. There seafood tastes so fresh, it melted in your mouth. The salad was fresh. You can go to the fancy seafood restaurants on the esplanade, as I did, but this seafood was unbeatable. The only thing I would like to see added to... More

The service was kind but the product was less than expected. The crumbed fish and chips had a thick bread part which was fried too much I think and you could taste only the fried bread and not the flavour of barramundi (I tried a couple more around like This and they were better) . Fried chips are good but... More

We were looking for a light snack. The boss received us very nicely. We took a big bowl of fresh fruits with smoothie under, it was delicious! And the price is ok for the size. We were very happy walking a little far from the lagoon to find a better restaurant !!!
