I've been coming here since I first came to Cairns in April 2015 and always order the juicy $16 lamb shank with vegetables and mash.

If you're looking for a delicious meal at a reasonable price head a couple of streets back from the foreshore to the Crown. The curries are delicious and for around $13 they're great value.

We had T-Bone steak at this pub for lunch. It was a large piece of meat that was tough and had quite a lot of fat and grissle in it. We asked for the chips to be well cooked but they came out undercooked and soggy. You had to pay $2 for gravy on the steak. The salad was very... More
