Entrees were quite good however main courses were sent back. Only time both myself and dining partner have sent food back in over 20 years of restaurant going. Crab ravioli was super dry, barely identifiable sauce was powdery and pasta almost raw. Salad was simply raw ingedients finely cut and thrown into a bowl. No dressing or attention to presentation.
How was this handled by staff?...we were told they had served it up many times that evening without complaint. We were offered 50% off the pasta meal which was not eaten and was frankly inedible. Oh well...never to return and has prompted first trip advisor review ever. A night of firsts!! Wait staff were polite but knowledge of wine list was lacking . Thank goodness for a nice bottle of wine and gorgeous location.

I recently went to Far Horizons in Palm Cove it was the best experience my family and I endured with great food excellent staff and a manager who knows how to treat her staff and patrons with respect. The steak was amazing cooked to perfection and we will definitely be back next time we are in Cairns. I would also recommend anyone looking for a place to hold business meetings etc to attend here as I will be from now on. Beautiful location, Great food and fantastic staff.
