I dined here with my partner and son.it wasn't busy.As it was a Thursday night. I was recommended to go there for my birthday dinner. I found the service very slow.so slow I wanted to leave. Drink service slow.oh $11 for a glass of bubbly..overpriced. Food was edible..just. prices should be adjusted to meet the standard of the food.staff need a attitude adjustment. Oh and the owner who wears thongs and a day dress does not help the overall presentation of the restaurant. I as a local could only cringe.Maybe staff should paste a smile on their face and pretend they are happy.If that is what it takes. Too make the customers feel welcome.Such a disappointment. Oh and my friend that recommended this restaurant is in trouble.

Came here today for a business lunch with some friends. had one of the specials which was Barramundi and it was superb. Service, ambiance and location all very good. I would highly recommend it for lunch and am eager to try it for dinner.

Dined here with friends - bit of a mixed bag. Food was very expensive for what it was and took a long time, even though restaurant quiet when our order was taken.

I want to give 5 stars to the flavour of the spinach and ricotta ravioli - something that can be very ordinary - this was so divine, unique, tangy, one of a kind. Was regretting only ordering entree size :-( Spaghetti Amatriciana (I think) was dull. Chicken parmy was delicious and looked lovely.

Entree breads just ok.

Would go again, but just for the rav. :-D

The food was very good.
Would have liked to see the staff wearing shoes instead of the one girl wearing thongs. They don't have full bar service so drinks were limited, but the food was definitely worth it.

Have been here a couple of times and although not one of my favourite restaurants in Cairns, I decided to try it again. The food is consistently good although the wait time was a little long for the food to arrive. All in all it was an enjoyable dinner and the service was adequate and pleasant but as I have experienced before, there is a lot to be desired from the owners when it comes to service. If they improved in this area it would do wonders for their business.
