This place has great tapas, great selection of beers (although less than they used to have) and great location in the marina at Airlie Beach. Great spot for social occasions!

We came here because of several recommendations from friends but I wasn't very impressed with my fish and chips- slightly over cooked and the chips were more like wedges with a spicy seasoning that I didn't remember seeing in the menu. My friends meal looked great however and she was impressed with it. Mixed reviews from us- she would go... More

This is a beautiful atmosphere at the Port of Airlie. It's a little way from the town centre, but worth the wander. There is more beer than you'll know why to do with and the menu is plentiful! We ordered four entrees to share and they were each exceptional! The zucchini balls were my favourite, closely followed by the duck... More

Located under Mantra Boathouse where we stayed, we ate at Denman's on the first afternoon we arrived. Staff were fantastic. Soft Shell crab taco's YES. Zucchini balls YES. Beer selection a treat. Only downside, wine and sparkling by the glass very limited. Great news, the beer selection is in a huge fridge and you can take away. I would recommend... More

Delicious menu and a fantastic choice of beers and wines. There wasn't much happening along the front at Airlie Beach so it was great to find this little spot. Weird thing to say but.....seriously the best fries EVER. Will definitely revisit

We had the Steak Sandwich and chips as side dish and has to be the best we've ever had! unbelievable! We also had ice-cream with coffee and baileys for desert and was really nice way to top the night off. Highly recommend

Delicious tapas. We had the duck, calamari and crocodile. First time trying crocodile and it was quite delicious. Happy hour starts at 3 and is a great value for the quality of food. Plus it has a gorgeous view. Next time I hope to try their fatoush salad.
