Sadly an opportunity for a great dining experience failed to deliver on many levels. It took almost 2 hours for the delivery of 7 courses that left us wanting more in both taste and portion size. Strange pairings such as the rich mutton with zesty lemon and parsnip and white chocolate were as confusing as a jeans clad manager and a white gloved head waiter. It’s hard to understand how our simple chosen desserts of toffee apple and caramelised chilli pineapple could arrive tasteless and cold. There is nothing a diner could actually complain about, the service, whilst slow was excellent, the presentation was detailed and attractive. But in conclusion an opportunity to hero beautiful local ingredients was missed and we would not return or recommend.

Beautiful restaurant in wonderful setting. Excellent waiter. Fine food but expensive which makes it a one/off experience when we have our annual holiday in Port Douglas, we eat out each night for 3 weeks, so need to be careful of budget. Not a fan of degustation. Would prefer to order 2 or 3 courses without extras, for which we ultimately pay.

Beautiful venue, atmosphere and views. The staff were very hospitable. And added a lovely touch for my husbands birthday. Thank you. The food, although small portions, rather filling. The flavours were amazing. Such care and detail to presentation. Compliments to the chefs. Oh... desert, I wanted another 10 servings (even though I couldn’t possibly fit) increable. Flavour combinations and textures were stunning.
