    Oak and Vine Restaurant on the Roof top of the Oaks Hotel, Is a great place to chill and relax high above the Tourist trap - that is the Esplanade. For a nicer meal without too much more expense than McD"s on the Ground floor below, try this place, a good variety of share plates and meals that are Modern and exciting, A huge selection of beverages from cocktails to Beers, and views that are not surpassed. I tried the Tuna Poke Bowl, it had all the condiments you would wish for, and it was certainly a good size meal for $17., however I would have been more than happy to pay $10.oo extra if I could have doubled the Tuna Quantity. the flavour's and condiments were plentiful, just would have liked a bit more Tuna!! But My Partners Barra was perfect and right amount, Could not fault service or ambience, the Boys were busy but managed to keep tables turning over.

    It’s a great location with probably the best views of Cairns. The food was really excellent and everyone in our group was impressed with the venue.

    Food was nice but over priced for what you're getting. There wasn't a large selection and no kids menu. Drinks where super expensive and tring a bit to hard.. bottom shelf liquir, top shelf pricing.. You're paying for the view which is awesome.. great place to have some basic drinks before you go some where better for dinner.

    It’s a beautiful view. The service is very friendly. We ordered 3 things from the menu that they had unfortunately run out of (entree, wine, dessert) so we had to make another choice. We weren’t brought any water which should be standard in FNQ. Food quality was average. Again, the service was very friendly though and that can make up for all the other things.

    Friends had visited previously so when a birthday celebration for 4 of us, The Oak and Vine was suggested. None of the rest of the group had been before. We LOVED it. All the team were super friendly and efficient, took pics for us and even brought out the cake - and sang with us. Couldn't beat that. Second visit yesterday saw us getting a bit wet - Cairns may necessitate some roof adjustments with it's tropical downpours. We enjoyed our lunch although servings were a bit small but they were tasty and reasonable in price accordingly. The view of course is awesome ! Thanks everyone, we'll be back.

    This has so much potential. Amazing location, views, space and terrific staff. However, It does not seem to know what it is! Is it a bar, restaurant, cafe, pub? It feels like the owners have had a vision but then skimped on it at the end. I'm guessing Covid might have had a part in this. There is absolutely no atmosphere, the lighting is awful, the fans in the dining area are set so high they really don't provide their guests with moving air and the dining furniture is just awful! The wonderful team were working under the worst of conditions, no air conditioning of course because it's open to the weather but the owners have put no consideration into the welfare of the team in the bar and preparation area. It was so hot and no fans were in this area and all of the team were dripping. And I mean dripping, wet uniforms, wet hair, perspiring and doing their best to look after their customers whilst looking and feeling uncomfortable. It's almost and OH&S issue. The food was pub food, soggy chips and a bit on the small portion size. Would I dine there again? No, but I will venture back to see if the owners have worked out what they want it to be and see if they look after their staff. Such a disappointment!
