    Slow and inattentive service, wait staff did not seem to care. The food was below expectations for the price: cafe level quality entree and mains.

    Was a lovely evening. Had the chef's set 6 course and can highly recommend. George was a attentive but not intruesive waiter . Easy to chat to and knew the menu. He definitely made the evening more enjoyable as we chatted about his home country.

    Fruit platter for dessert was hardly eaten the watermelon tasted awful - very disappointing was a very standard platter Service was below average Also there was a set menu for our group booking. Half of the menus on our table read for Lunch not Dinner which was confusing We would’ve much preferred the extensive dinner menu to order from which needs to be specified for group bookings online that there is ONLY set menus. Great cocktails The chilli beef meal was awesome for flavour however the beef was chewy which was disappointing

    The set lunch menu was nice, more dinner food than lunch food The wait staff were very inexperienced After the food was cleared we were left alone ... no offer of another bottle of wine no offer of coffee no cleaning the lunch debris from the table We are a group of 7 women, we all dine out a lot in cairns, this was my 4th visit to Papercrane we were all very underwhelmed
