The staff were amazing with our two handful toddlers and the food was tasty. We ordered a range of different things - pizza, lamb, salad, gnocchi - and everything was really good. Thanks!

This place is genuinely beachy and a fun place to dine. We enjoyed the food and the service is casual and friendly. A definite good option to eat if you are visiting Port Douglas. Pays to book as it is very popular.
