The food was delicious. The service was really good. I would recommend for your starter the cheesy garlic bread. We come to cairns once a year and always visit this place. The kids love the food.

Nothing fancy, just very good food with a friendly staff. The caprese was excellent. My wife's pesto dish was really good (I sneaked a bite) and my veal was perfect. Highly recommended.
