Star Apple restaurant in Yorkeys Knob is absolutely wonderful. The ambience is beautiful, the food delicious and the staff friendly and hospitable. Plus it's dog friendly!! I walk my dog and drop in for coffee during the day or go out with friends for dinner at night.

Six of us visited Star Apple recently for dinner. We were lucky to get in, as it is a small restaurant, and they already had a party eating. The service was very polite and helpful. We had a complimentary warm calamari starter to begin, which was a nice treat. Our kids each had a main meal as they were hungry,... More

Star Apple is a wonderful little restaurant hidden away on the far end of Sims Esplanade in Yorkeys Knob. We go often and have tried almost everything on the menu. High quality, flavorful and fresh. The prime rib fillet is excellent, the fish and chips are fantastic, and my wife cant get enough of their yummy beef cheeks. Last night... More

Good brekkie/brunch options (the quinoa fritters, eggs Benedict and breakfast burrito are all great), good coffee and fresh juice made to order. It's under cover, so you're protected from the sun and cooled by the ceiling fans. It's practically on the beach, so you can go for a gentle sea-side stroll after your meal if you wish. There were a... More

This restaurant really shouldn't be Cairns best kept secret. It needs to be shared with all! I have definitely been missing out until I had the fortune of being introduced to the staff and dining experience at Star Apple recently. Ben and Lucy are a dynamic duo, each a powerhouse for back and front of house respectively. They and their... More
