    This restaurant had great food, but the service was slow and the waiter hardly said a word making us all feel unwelcome. Hiring happy and jolly full staff combined with good food will make a huge difference

    All meals were delicious, but a little on the $$$ side. Cocktails were nice too. Great wine knowledge from our waiter. I had crab. It was lovely. The scollops, arancini, fish of the day and steak were also very well received. Steak (medium) was so soft and delicious.

    The service was very slow and the waitress serving us couldn’t even squeeze out a smile and very slow. We ask the man / host for some cutlery, he said: I will get your waitress. You are in the service industry. Why don’t you just bring the cutlery over? Then we asked for some lemons to go with the sparking water. That took asking 2 waitresses and 18 minutes. Then ordered the most expensive item on the menu: the seafood tray. We understand that it’s cook to order so it will take time, but it took more than 50 minutes. When it arrived, the oysters looked shrivelled up and “warm”. It is suppose to be a combination of cold and hot seafood items. Turns out that others were the only cold (but turned out warm) seafood.

    Great food, good friendly service. Predominantly sea food, cooked to perfection. Location at end of shopping strip means ample parking and easily accessible.

    Poor welcome and service, obviously were short staffed. Food was good though food drenched in oil. Least favourite dining experience in Port Douglas.

    Sassi has the best (warm) seafood platter in Port, and probably the best one I have ever had. And we keep coming back here and the quality never varies. Service is intelligently attentive.

    Astounded by our meal last night. We booked a late time (8:30pm) considering it shuts at 9pm. We did not feel rushed in the slightest. The staff were so friendly and extremely acknowledgeable on the food and the wine. The quality of the food was amazing and has to be one of the best meals I’ve had in a long long time. I would 100% recommended going there to anyone. There’s something for everyone. Thank you so much for making our first night in port Douglas one to remember :)
