Excellent food and service

I have an Accor Plus Gold card and eat here with my partner regularly . The service is outstanding and the food fantastic. When we go out with friends from out of town we always bring them here as we know how impressed they will be . The seats in the front part of the restaurant have a better ambiance then the new areas so try and be seated there . If you want a great night in Cairns and to be treated like royalty come here for a meal and some of the great cocktails

We are Accor Advantage Plus Members and were recommended by them to dine at this Restaurant. When we checked into our hotel they also recommended that we should dine here. Given that we came with very high expectations we definitely were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the Staff were so friendly and welcoming and extremely professional and efficient. Their knowledge of the Menu and their understanding of each component for every dish was impressive to say the least. We ordered one of their cocktails - their signature Mojito - and it was delicious. The perfect Mojito! The experience just continued to impress as the meal progressed. The combinations of flavours and textures on each plate was just incredible. Every mouthful was a treat. The serving sizes were generous but not too much. Every dish we were left wanting more but only because of the delicious flavours! We have dined in some very elite restaurants including Michelin Hatted venues and we both agreed that this was one of the best dining experiences that we have ever had. Thank you to the front of house staff but more importantly thank you to the Chef and all kitchen staff. We will travel to Cairns just to return to this restaurant!
