This was a great experience from checkin to checkout. The staff was amazing particularly Jess. The food particularly good. Never had Kangaroo before but it was awesome and they said no animals were hurt in the preparation. We highly recommend the chocolate soufflé!

We dined here our last night in Port Douglas. The restaurant is open air with little ambiance creating rather loud environment. The food was excellent, check the specials as there was a great selection. The wine list was good. The dessert topped an excellent meal....More
