This restaurant is on the Esplanade overlooking the ocean. It has fantastic fresh seafood, the atmosphere is refined and friendly and the service was exceptional. We had a table of 10 plus a 14 month old in a high chair. When we asked about food for the baby they offered several things they could make her and once we settled on sweet potato mash with veggies and gravy it was out in minutes, allowing her dad to get her fed before his meal came out. When our meals came all 10 were together and not one single piece of food was left on any plate - delicious. Most of us had fish/seafood but the two steaks on the table were good quality and well cooked to order.
Prices are standard for Cairns.
Wine is a bit expensive here and $15 per bottle corkage makes BYO prohibitive, this is the only minor negative I have for this restaurant.

We stopped for a quick lunch. Every restaurant on this strip had a luch deal and this suited us. Service was prompt and food came quickly.
We sat outside and watched Cairns go by.

Came here based on recommendation that the crab was fantastic. We went for a seafood banquet and it certainly delivered. The best lobster and scallops I have ever had as well and I have a lot. Would definately come again.

Very good located restaurant close to the center and on the main walking area.
It was recommended to check this place out. Was a good idea.
Very fast service, good crowd and a helpful waiter was the key for this.
I had sea bug for the first time and they were delicious.

In front of the sea there are a continuous choice of restaurants you can choose from, but this one was our favourite one for the staff, the service, the plates (fish above all) the wines the cost.
