This restaurant caters for seafood lovers
Our meals were exceptional from entree to desserts.
Customer Service is one of the best that we all experience in a very long time.
We are from Townsville and friends from Victoria. I oversee McDonalds Stores in Vic and Townsville.
One of the service staff (Nobby) came over and surprised us all by singing "Happy Birthday " to my husband.
We definitely be back soon :)

we went the first night we were in Cairns and went back the next night again as the food was simple so delicious.
We had the seafood plate for 2 the first night which was cooked to perfection and the 2nd night we had the thai fishcakes and the spring rolls. A must to visit when in Cairns.
Also staff was so friendly and professional.

Disappointing meal. Crustaceans were floury and mushy, mussels were dry, oysters were average. Fish, calamari and crab cake were nice. Service was prompt and attentive. Staff need to be more informed of the origins of the oysters and mussels. Don’t think they farm them in Port Douglas!!

Hi Fiona. We are very sorry to hear your meal was not up to our standard. Thank you for your feedback, just a clarification for you which I am sorry that the waitstaff did not do is that the oysters are from Port Douglas, Coffin Bay South Australia. We hope that you will join us again at some time in the future.

Tha Fish. They offer you a 4 option choice here of how you'd like your fish coooked. What a find. This is one of several restaurants along the promenade. Here you won't be slugged a fee for paying by card. Be careful along the promenade as some have higher than normal prices yet still charge you a surcharge for paying by card. Avoid those that do, ask before you enter, here though no such sneaky fees. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and the wine. Fantastic fish dishes.

Portion size has dropped significantly and so has the drink size but the price has risen, I had lunch special fish and chips and was not enough to eat, very disappointed last time was much better, soon there will be nothing on the plate for $50 bucks, no photo was not big enough to take a pic.
