We stopped by for an early, light dinner. The chowder (potato, leek, shrimp and fish) was delicious! Brushetta was good, too....and you can't beat the view of the Esplanade.

Had the opportunity to enjoy a meal again at Splash while holidaying in FNQ. This place has never let us down. Super friendly, accommodating staff & great value for money meals. Always great.

We had dinner there tonight. One of the things we were told we had to try in this area were the bugs.(mortons bay lobsters). They were very tasty, the service was great, the side dish was a sautéed greens and fried potato dish that was fabulous.

I booked a table at Splash for NYE based on the reviews I had read, and I have to say that we were not in the least bit disappointed. They were very busy, but that didn't take away from the food or the service. We shared the most delicious calamari starter I have had in a very long time. My... More

We had lunch here and it was a little hit and miss, they didn't have a few things that were on the menu and one of the dishes arrived and wasn't what we were told it would be but up on the upside the manager was very helpful and the rest of the food was good. Its a nice laid... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner after reading all the wonderful reviews but I must say the food was very average. We ordered Cajun Spanish Mackerel and Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi, both were very dry and overcooked. My partners plating looked like it was dropped and just hurriedly put back on the dish. The server apologised for the horrible plating... More

We had a light dinner at Splash. We found the staff very helpful, and the menu had a diverse selection. Slightly pricey and limited air conditioning on a hot day, but we enjoyed it.

They were able to fit us in on New Year's Eve. The service was great, didn't have to wait log for anything. The staff were friendly, inviting and had time to ensure we were looked after. Food was fantastic! Highly rate this place!

First of staff, staff were very good, attentive and asked us a few times if everything is ok. As I was ravenous, I needed something to be served quickly while the fish was cooking so ordered garlic bread. It came 10-15 minutes later and I scoffed the.whole lot. It was not garlicky. Much. The best garlic bread I had was... More
