Wow, this place was recommended by the locals and very well patronised by them. Best spot overlooking the marina and trawlers. Produce is fresh off the boat, cooked to perfection. Atmosphere the best. Highly reccomend, the bug tails were the best I have eaten.

We arrived in Bowen on a rainy day having visited two tourist information centres on route plus speaking to locals. All recommended this place. The two young ladies were very friendly and talked us through the different types of fish (apparently there are other fish than barramundi). They all looked very fresh, were offered grilled, battered or crumbed and were cooked to perfection. We tried three different types and the calamari. Even the chips seemed above average, although not our prime concern. The price was OK. I can't remember when I had a better piece of fish at any price. The tables around the back were basic but OK. If I lived in Bowen I'd be there every week either eating or shopping.

What can beat Sunday lunch on the deck overlooking fishing trawlers, whilst eating the most delicious battered coral trout? Great chips too. Food was prepared super quick, takeaway style, so don't expect anything posh here.
Limited selection of cold drinks, seems that most people there had brought their own. 50c for a polystyrene takeaway cup was a bit of a shock, but the food itself couldn't be faulted.
Definitely worth hunting out.

Thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful lunch out on the back deck overlooking the mariner this afternoon. Staff are friendly, food is sensational & the surroundings calming & relaxing.

We took our own drinks and sat out on the deck to watch the sunset over the water. Fishing trawlers were getting ready to go out and the whole scene was great. Birdies have lovely fresh local seafood and delicious chips. Would definitely come back!
