The atmosphere here is just gorgeous. Some of the most attentive and friendly staff I've ever come across! The food was good and the chef very happy to accommodate us when I had a request.

The food at On The Inlet is delicious. I ordered the tuna steak which was cooked to perfection. Lovely and pink in the middle. My fiancée ordered the fillet steak as she is not a huge fan of seafood. She was also very impressed with her meal. The waitresses are very nice and the location is beautiful. Fantastic restaurant!

Ate here twice with family, deep fried whole fish is great, deserts also fantastic. Kids enjoyed feeding the fish with the prawn shells. Great location on the inlet.

Don't be deceived by the look of the premises from the outside, as once inside you soon realise that it opens to a large covered deck overlooking the inlet.

Had Sunday lunch with the family. Food was good and stunning views. Only complaint was the bill included other people items, which we spotted and told the staff, but we received no apology. So watch you bill

We arrived here for drinks, and to see George the Groper. Unfortunately, George didn't want to come out and say hi. We sat down to a lovely waitress who was kind and understanding. The food was great, the service was quick and overall a very fun night!!

Had a lovely casual dining experience - we went in shorts! Food and service was good. Barramundi was absolutely delicious. Try and reserve a table by the water - you can get a better view.

As you walk to the entry via the narrow driveway and not so clean shared car park you may think twice and turn around. Don't leave.... Let me tell you once inside the view, the service and the food are on point... One of the Best restaurant position in Port Douglas.... Looking at the PD marina entry and watching the... More
