    Lovely setting on the Cairns Pier boardwalk. Tasty pizzas, enjoyed by all and good service, would highly recommend. Adequate social distances measures in place.

    Seating is cramped,if you have 2 & anyone moving vibrates your banquette seat. Oysters were fab, the risotto was poorly presented & very bland, seafood pasta has 2 prawns & little taste. Limited menu unless you like pizza. Noisy, staff forgot drinks, long wait for our meal after the entre, & there is no point when I've started my meal to ask if I'd like Parmesan cheese. All up would I recommend it. No.

    Look we were so excited to try a new restaurant and be on a double date kid free. To arrive and be told your table is over there with a point of a finger and not get taken to your table was pretty poor. It took forever for our drinks to come. We had entrees which were good. It took us 3 goes to get a bottle of water. Our mains well took a long time to come and the pasta was raw. Im an Italian myself and have grown up eating freshly made pasta that my mother makes. The pasta was not cooked to aldente it was raw it was like eating raw noodles. When we finished we were asked how the meal was and told them how badly cooked the pasta was and was told that its because it is freshly made Italian pasta and cooked to aldente.... well it wasn't. Overall they need to learn some customer service skills and how to cook pasta properly.

    Group of 5 guys out for steak dinner. Service friendly on arrival. Nice busy atmosphere. First course we order 3 pizzas to share and they were just excellent chewy delicious wood fired crust and quality ingredients. Main course was steak to share (each portion meant to feed 2) and an extra lamb rack - here Is where thingS fell apart. First the waiter forgot to put through the lamb rack and when The steak arrived the portion sizes were a joke - might have been adequate for one person but when you pay $80 for steak you expect a reasonable portion. We had to order 2x extra rump steaks to make up for the missing lamb rack so we didn’t leave hungry. Overall good-great food but terrible value for money so can’t recommend

    We have never been to this gem before, since the lockdown we have been searching food venues that we would like to try, this was our first choice and WHAT A CHOICE! The staff were lovely, cocktails 10/10, and the food - having lived in around the Lygon St, Carlton (Melbourne) region - Ollies was even better! Highly recommended, will tell all those who will listen, and will definitely return. Thank you for offering Cairns such divine food!

    Great restaurant with excellent food. Staff were fantastic. Small issue getting one of the meals out but restaurant manager sorted with an extra desert.

    Didn’t get given the specials board. Food was over priced for the quality given. Place was nice but service was probably the worst part of the experience. Shame really.. could be a lovey restaurant if they had more attentive waiters..

    Great location with nice view. Friendly and attentive staff. We got free champagne when they found out it was our wedding anniversary. The food was really nice, the cost was acceptable for the level of restaurant. Would go back.

    Staff was amazing, wasnt a moment our group of 6 felt unattended. The food was great also. Lovely restaurant, was a Saturday night and didn't feel rushed to leave after our meals. Will definately come back again. Thank you

    Had a lovely lunch at this beautiful waterfront restaurant today. We had the steak sandwich, salmon, and a side of prawns, all of which were very fresh and delicious. The staff were friendly and took good care of us. Particularly recommend this restaurant for those who are gluten intolerant as there are plenty of choices.

    1st time at this restaurant, was greeted by name by the matre'd on arrival. Having mentioned partners' birthday on line was seated on the best table in the house. We both enjoyed the evening, unique cooking style, attentive service and as locals will return in the future. Well done to all. S&P

    Great atmosphere and the pizza was very tasty and light, like it should be. Service was very good, attentive to details and the staff was very friendly, the only thing I would change it is the quantity of the pasta. My friend took a carbonara, it was delicious and it looked good, but for that price I was expecting a bit more.

    Everything was superb, a few staff coming to the table for orders and things. Could probably use a bit more structure in who is the server as we did ask a few people a couple times for the same thing and still waited for it. Other than that it was a great night.

    Seated in the wind made our food go cold very quickly. We asked for our childs food first and it came last. Food was good but expect better for the price.
