We visited this restaurant on passing last weekend. The food was awesome. The service was also very very good. The waiter was exceptional. We are locals and were not disappointed.

We shared a mix of their entrees and they were quite stunning. The calamari was fabulous as were the mixed oysters and coconut prawns.

We head to Cairns every couple of years and are always happy to see this restaurant as busy and as popular as ever. Amazing service, brilliant food and good prices for quality bottled wines.

Had aSunday free night on a tour. Wanted to try a different seafood place and I found this. Great atmosphere and I had the mixed grill. It included pawns, bugs, Bermunda fish with pineapple salsa, side green salad. Service was good, and staff were friendly . Price was reasonable.

We just had our Christmas break up at Raw Prawn. There were 20 people and we were in the function room upstairs. The waiter who attended us couldn't have been more helpful and nothing was too much of a bother. The food was excellent the atmosphere was brilliant and we plan to go back again next year.

With a party of eight (mainly NZ visitors on their first visit to Cairns) on a busy Friday night in Cairns we were accommodated with no fuss. We were told that a table would be available within ten minutes and it was. Food was excellent and service great.

This restaurant is situated on the Esplanade and one can eat either inside or out. The menu is very varied, ranging from sea food to steak to pasta etc. and looking at the starters one can ask for them as a main meal, for the less hungry. I especially enjoyed the seafood chowder which was a very large helping, and... More
