Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

In Cairns for a few days, found this bar and grill on the Esplanade for lunch. Service absolutely fantastic, steak best I have ever had and Beer very very good. This hasn't been open for too long, but deserves to have a brilliant reputation for...fantastic food and service.More

Generally the food is good (ish) however steaks across our table overcooked - let them know and they really didn’t care.. I am guessing no management on Sunday nights. Ribs ok

Wonderful spot to eat. We didn't have a booking, just walked in. We were greeted by happy, friendly staff. We were told there may be a delay due to short staffed, honestly it wasn't an issue. We were very happy with the time of service-...it was actually nice not to feel rushed. Food was amazing- fresh and hot.More

We were so lucky to be here for Christmas dinner. Food was fantastic. The jerk chicken salad was light and flavorful. I'm going to be craving the coconut dressing for sure. Burgers and steak were outstanding.

We ordered two plates of ribs. Never ate such ribs - with so little beef on them. When we left the place we were still hungry.

We were walking along the Esplanade and chose Copper's just based on the menu and the vibe. Great choice. 3 of us a great dinner with great service. Prawn tacos, Mediterranean salad, and pasta w/ shrimp and lobster. All excellent. A very enjoyable dinner

Poor service, wrong food delivered to table. Manageress said we were wrong, which we weren't. Small meals and so terribly salty it was not edible. Perhaps the chef's tastebuds got destroyed during his illness but seriously the amount of salt on the pasta was horrendous....Expensive for what it is. Went to Maccas afterwards to have a feed as we were all hungry still. Squid was tough and chewy with extremely sweet sauce. Pasta to salty and way to much garlic. Barramundi was dry and tasteless. Paid nearly $400 for 6 people for miserable food, only 1 drink each, poor service, rude manageress and salt overdose poisoning.More

The wrong cut of steak, incorrectly cooked with wrong sauce. The waitress acknowledged the mistake but didnt offer to rectify anything. Upon payment we were charged for what we ordered and not what we actually got.

This was a nice stop for tea. The location was nice and the food and pricing was the usual for the area. They have a kid’s menu which is a plus

Fantastic food and service and sitting outside on a balmy night was just magic. The prawn entree was great. Jerk chicken main course was perfect. Nice food, wine and staff and would love to eat there again.
