Ate fabulous mussels overlooking the water and sail boats with a few friends. Our Italian waiter was fun and obviously enjoyed his job. Returned 3 days later and seasonal mussels taken off the menu, so disappointed, but soon found another favourite. Give them a try

We stopped in at Lure on our first day in Port Douglas for a late lunch. We were seated on the balcony immediately after the waiter asked for us to wait a moment for him to clean the table (COVID requirements). He then took our...drinks order and returned shortly after to take the food order. Our food arrived promptly and it was delicious! The sushi was just unreal, soo many flavours and incredibly tasty. The bugs were a touch overcooked, a minute less they would have been melt in your mouth rather than meaty. Still good though, and would definitely order again. We will be back. Add to Lure your list when stopping by Crystalbrook marina.More

The person who said he is the current manager is the rudest most unwelcoming person I have met in hospitality. We have attended this restaurant several times over the years years which is now a clearly deteriorating as a business, the attitude of the manager...probably explains why they are not longer open for dinner. Never again.More

A huge shout out to Kelly, Adam, and the staff of Lure Restaurant for making our wedding night extra special! We were a relatively last minute booking for our May wedding, but Kelly really stepped up. Nothing was too much trouble, she worked with us...really well and helpfully assisted us in finding vendors and putting together decorations. The staff on the night were lovely, very attentive and super helpful. Big thanks to Adam and his team for looking after us and our guests, many of our guests commented on how wonderful the service was. In terms of the kitchen, Kelly and her chefs did phenomenal job! The food was amazing and again, many of our guests complimented the food, with some saying it was some of the better wedding food they've had. An amazing effort from all, thanks for making our special night that more special!More

Don’t you just love it when you arrive at the entrance to a café with a sign “please wait to be seated” and you are then studiously ignored by two staff gossiping close by? That is what happened here and when I drew attention to...my presence I was asked by one of the culprits “Are you right?”. “Of course not, I am waiting to be shown to a table” I replied. The waiter seemed annoyed with my response and we were then grumpily shown to a table, which overlooked the marina with delightful views to the distant mountains. To make up for the initial offhanded treatment our coffee was excellent, the generous servings of cakes were delicious and the quality of the service improved.More

Waited in line for 10 minutes for a coffee, was told when I got to the front of the line that regardless of the medical exemption that I produced I couldn’t order without a mask. The waiter at the front was rude and walked off...on us standing there waiting telling us it’s his choice. If that’s not discrimination I don’t know what is. Would not recommend.More

Swift service and good food and coffee in this quayside diner. Menu is good and service was strong. Good for takeaway coffee before say sailing trip.
