From the moment we made our reservation with the very helpful and cheerful Danielle I had a great feel for this restaurant. Our waiter, Jean-Paul, was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. As Cairns locals we were proud of such great service and great food.

One of the better seafood restaurants we had tried in cairns. We shared the grigliata - delicious and the seafood was very fresh.

We ordered the seafood di mare. The meal did not contain any scallops nor a whole lobster as it was advertised to include. The seafood was obviously not fresh. Prawns were mushy, half lobster and morton bay bugs were dry and chewy. Overall a very poor meal. Would never go back nor recommend to our family or friends. Extremely over priced for what we were served.

We ate here several times whilst staying in Cairns. Being a large family group we were always unsure of numbers. The staff accepted this with good grace and flexibility, accommodating latecomers and extras.

The FOOD was great. The menu offers some really interesting exotic combinations as well as 'normal' dishes. Our group included some chefs and all enjoyed their meals.

Food was correctly cooked, presented well, moderate portion sizes, tasty sauces, exotic Australian game meats, seafood, steak, lamb, some vego options.
