We came here last year on recommendation and it was fantastic. I didn't think it could get better but it did. Great service beautiful fresh food and everything was just great. I highly recommend. But book well in advance so you don't miss out

Came on the recommendation if a friend and TA. Had lunch on a Wednesday. We were seated promptly, offered water, and drinks ( a beer and a glass of house wine) arrived promptly. We ordered fairly promptly, (a salad and the fish of the day) and the wait began. We noticed two other tables nearby had ordered and were waiting from when we arrived. There was a pattern, you waited at least half an hour for your meal. We had finished our drinks before the meal arrived, no we didn't want more drinks - we wanted our meal!
The only exception to this pattern were some locals, who were in and out before our meal arrived. They may have requested a quick lunch?

Having said all that the ceaser salad with chicken was okay - not the best I've had, but not the worst either. Husbands fish of the day was a very small portion of mahi mahi and as the next table was offered the fish of the day as swordfish maybe his was the last portion there. His comment was it was okay - there was more rice than fish.

The food was lovely and the staff were all really friendly and cheerful. Service was really quick despite the restaurant being packed. Would definitely recommend to someone wanting to have a special meal while staying in Port Douglas! It's a little pricey though, but you definitely get what you pay for.

This is my favourite place to eat in Port Douglas especially for special occasions (bdays, anniversaries etc). Everything is always beautifully presented and delicious. The yabbi linguini is a must!
