You MUST order the calamari, it is simply the best I have ever had! Great service and a great location by the beach.

Average dinner in beautiful surrounds. Sweet potato chips were not what I was expecting at all, they were cold chips, not hot which I thought they would be and fish tacos were average as well, too much batter on the fish. It's a REALLY beautiful spot to sit and have dinner though, just need insect repellent because once the sun... More

Really nice spot for Lunch, good for a Cairns local wanting a day out. Nice and clean with a lovely view. Meals are reasonably priced for Port Douglas with a better than average range on the menu. Tasty food and a decent serving size. Drinks - are nice and cold. The best part is the Great Staff-- Friendly and efficient.... More

Port Douglas surf club is highly recommended. Good food. Lights partially shine onto beach. Take mozzie repellent if you sit on tables on the edge of deck. Been there several times:)

We had an early dinner at this great beachfront surf club and it lived up to our expectations. It can be very hot during the day so we timed our visit for a later afternoon which worked out perfect. The food is typical surf club style and quality and the beers are very cold. You do have to order your... More

The customer service here is absolutely terrible, I ordered some battered prawns and he told me they were shelled and battered so anybody would presume that means shells removed before they are battered but when they arrived they had shells on, I pointed this out to them but they wouldn't swap them for something else so I asked if they...

We went for lunch and were very pleased with the food. Our daughter had the sushi and said it was the best in Port Douglas. We also ordered the Fish Tacos and pork Belly which we loved. We would have gone back but ran out of time. It was nice to go for lunch so you can see beach through... More

This is such a great place to visit. We had visited it before because it's right on the beach and great for a cool drink. This visit we got caught in a thunder storm so decided to stay for dinner. It was fantastic. Highly recommend the tempura prawn sushi roll and pork belly buns. Delicious. We had a young child... More

Good, simple and welcoming ... service friendly and efficient, menu is fuss free and good tasty. All this place needs is a better 'fan solution' and we would not leave. The sweet potato chips are a must have and the salsa yum. The corn wonderful and buttermilk chicken same. Love the mexican influenced menu. ... ... just pls try and... More
