Called in for dessert and coffee. The coffee was very small. Dessert was nice. Very dark restaurant, hard to see menu or food.

My husband and I both had the half rack of ribs. Nicely cooked but have had more meaty ribs in my time. He ended up finishing mine

Went here with work colleagues. Our table ordered 3 steaks, 1 ribs, 1 burger, and a vegetarian meal. Reasonable wait for the meal but service was outstanding. We sat indoors and it is a charming zebra/animal design with beautiful wood throughout. The pork ribs were fantastic a little pricey for a half rack but well worth a try!

Oh my, that was the tastiest steak ever! Just so delicious! We had the squid as a starter which was nice but not extraordinary, but the mains made up for that. Would highly recommend.

We had a chance to dine here for both dinner and lunch during our stay in Cairns. At dinner we had both the steak and the ribs. The ribs were definitely a highlight. For lunch we had a chicken wrap which was surprisingly tasty. Service was friendly, attentive, and unobtrusive. One of the best spots along the marina!

Now I don't often write restaurant reviews unless I am really impressed or really disappointed. This place just blew us away; it was so accommodating. We dined here on the last night of our family holiday in Cairns, as a special treat. We had out 1 year old with us, which we told staff about when we made a reservation.... More

We were fortunate that we were too late at another nearby restaurant, so wandered on and found the Waterbar. The layout and ambience was good and the view of the full moon rising through skimpy clouds from behind the hills, and shining across the water through the boat marina was inspiring . There was a nice breeze to offset the... More
