The oysters were delicious and so fresh. All the food we had was cooked perfectly. And...cold beer. Situated right on the Captain Cook highway and views of the beach. Definately a must do!!More

We stopped in here for lunch on our way from cairns to port Douglas. It had reggae music playing and a great beach vibe. It was reasonably priced with everyone enjoying their meals. The mesquite chicken salad and beef nachos a real hit. Ordered a...jug aperol spritz good value for $25!More

A short walk up from the park, cross the road and there it is. Good service simple menu, but tasty food.

Fantastic nachos and other meals were great too (including burger and fish & chips). Vibe was pleasant for a relaxing late lunch

Completely unassuming but food is first class. Cocktails are great value and the food looks amazing and tastes even better! Highly recommended.

Service was prompt and efficient. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The menus are amazingly good - and huge - for an establishment of this size. We had salt and pepper squid (as a starter) - which is usually a good indication of the...quality of the kitchen staff/chef. NEVER in my life have I eaten such incredibly well prepared squid. It was excellent and worth every cent of the $19.00 we paid for it. My wife then had a Mesquite Salad and I sampled their steak dish. Both were excellent. We live only 50 km from Ellis beach and had heard that things had improved - from a culinary sense - in recent times, so made the trip to find out first hand. And we're so glad we did. We will now go there regularly and give the tired old Cairns restaurants (with never changing menus and surly service) we've frequented for the past decade a BIG miss.More

This is a must do when travelling the coast road north of Cairns. The view of the beach is good, the service is good, the food is good. Perfect.
