About Barnacle Bill's Seafood Inn

Named after the infamous pirate with a penchant for seafood, Barnacle Bill’s Seafood Inn is one of Cairns’ most popular and long-standing seafood restaurants. For more than two decades this restaurant on the Esplanade, set right opposite the water, has reeled in the crowds – passing tourists and local regulars alike – with its relaxed yet upbeat vibe, friendly and efficient service and top quality catch. Choose a spot indoors or out by the Esplanade and plunder away your hunger with the likes of a seafood pasta with fish, prawns and mussels served in garlic cream sauce, with a side of crunchy garlic bread; or opt for a meat dish with the likes of Chiang Mai pork belly - grilled and served with vegetables and rosemary butter. Bookings at Barnacle Bill’s Seafood Inn are essential.
