“One of the best meals I have had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

I attended Seabean this evening with my partner. After 5 days in Port Douglas with bad customer service and average food, Seabean was a superb find. Our waitress was very and friendly and lovely (Dutch lady, we didn't catch her name). I don't understand the previous review about the staff rushing them. We say here tonight for a good two and a half hours and did not feel rushed once. The opposite really, we wanted to stay longer. The tapas were reasonably priced and sensational. All up we had 8 different tapas between us with very nice Spanish beer and wine. The food was absolutely delicious and the combination and contrast of different ingredients and flavours were amazing and complimented each other well. The only disappointment is that we found this place on our last night here otherwise we would have dined here daily. Thank you to all the staff for a great evening.

“Truthful review”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

On one of many visits to port douglas . We found sea bean very ordinary in food and service . Feel we were rushed through our meal. Impression from staff they were in a hurry to move us on even though they were not busy at the time were there. Would not recommend to visit , there are many more places to eat .

“Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

Great little restaurant on waterfront in wharf street. Read the reviews and gave it a try. Our second time here, we loved it so much. Great choice, good size servings and good value. Crispy prawns are the best, very tasty and great presentation of tapas. Do yourself a favour and try it.

“Great tapas meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

Stopped in for quick meal after a day out on the reef. Luckily we were there early as it filled up pretty quickly after 7pm. Was nice to be able to sit outside with a little bit of breeze, even if it was basically on the footpath as the road and footpath were very quiet in the evenings...

Food and cocktails were great, with large tapas selection on the menu and a number of special items on the blackboard that changed every night. Food was very tasty, quick to arrive and good sized portions for the prices.

Staff were friendly and attentive.

“Great informal dining experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Lovely, informal. Great service and super tasty food. We went back a number of times. My favorite was the Pumpkin risotto balls. I enjoyed the experience as much as the Nautilus experience. First class and a different experience to the "finer dining" establishments.
