We visited on a night where there was a little wind about, but were we well sheltered by glass. Welcoming staff. You are given a menu and shown to a table. When you have picked your meal, you order at a counter near the entrance. Drinks are available from the bar and you have to go to the bar to... More

We dined at the Port Douglas Surf Club 3 times during our 8 night stay, partly because it was just a block from our apartment and partly because it was reasonably priced, great food. We had a variety of meals including steak, calamari, pork belly steamed buns and salmon - all of which were very nice. Couldn't beat the location... More

Fantastic little layback spot for an afternoon beer. Food is quite good surprisingly as well. Right on the Beach front.

We went here on our first night in Port Douglas as it was only a couple of minutes walk from our accomodation. The location is perfect being right at the beach. We were able to go for a stroll on the beach after dinner. There is also a little fenced kids area at the side so they could play while... More

Would not expect such good food at a surf club bar. Not just pub food. Try the sushi, or a burger, or a salad - all were good. Service s good too and a nice location on the beach. Beers not so great though.

I went here with my family after a lovely long walk along the beach. It's a great place to just chill out with a nice cold glass of something on their sofas or to have lunch. My son had a duck doughnut! Yes, I know it sounds awful but it actually works! My son certainly enjoyed it! I was more... More

I was very surprised with the quality of the food for just a surf club. Well worth a visit and better than some of the restaurants. Great location just off the beach. Great for lunch or dinner.

Nice atmosphere by the beach with full moon view. Food very good and large servings. My mate's steak was 'sensational' so he will be back. Meal served promptly and staff very friendly and courteous. Like everywhere else in PD, take mozzie spray!

I can't believe we've been to Port a number of times and haven't stumbled upon this hidden gem until now. We had been for a swim and actually wer looking for the loo when we happened across this place. What a beautiful spot, filetered beach views, really upmarket, lovely food, in a relaxed atmosphere. We were a little disheveled but... More

The bistro caters for all ages and is a great place for a well priced but quality meal. Whenever we go to Port Douglas, we will always go there at least 2-3 times during our stay.
