Ate here twice on our recent holiday to Port Douglas and both meals were enjoyable. A little bit pricey as you have to add sides of salad and chips with main meals. Fresh seafood and delicious drinks.

We went as a family of 5 looking for a quick easy tea. What we got was a very expensive salty over cooked yuk! We had the calamari which if not so salty would have been ok, but the chips were so over cooked they were not edible. Very disappointing for first night back in PD in 12 months. Will not be coming back.

The food was not bad but the portions were so small ! I got such a tiny piece of fish that I thought it was a joke! It tasted good but a little ridiculous for the price.

Tried this place on recommendation one night. Whilst the food tasted ok, it was the service that was a let down. The counter set up is not conducive to being served properly, with customers ordering, customers waiting for their takeaway all vying for the same space as the one waitress who is trying to work her way through the crowd to get the food out. They will happily take your order but good luck with finding somewhere to sit! The water barrel was there but they'd run out of glasses to get a drink! Our food came out to us in stages, so one of us had practically finished before the rest of us had received ours. Not worth a second visit.

Ordered a smoked barramundi burger which was a processed rubbery patty on a bed of saurkraut and mayo. Inedible patty and when I mentioned it to the staff, who responded, 'sorry about that'
Paid $15 and expected a good quality burger.
No offer of a replacement meal or refund. Won't be coming back!
