This night at the Raw Prawn was our first meal on an Australian tour and it was wonderful. We had delicious appetizers, and I ordered the Hop, Skip and a Jump which was crocodile, kangaroo, and barrramundi. Dessert was included and good also.

A very good barramundi dish with good and reasonably priced (for Cairns) wine. Very helpful and friendly staff. Noticeable that the manager (owner) kept an eye on what was happening without being obtrusive. Highly recommended!

Just OK food, another tourist trap where you pay for the Esplanade location. Another one visit only restaurant. Must do better.

The waiter we had was excellent and very efficient ( I don't often tip a waiter but did on this occasion). A great selection of meat and seafood options available. We could not fault the service or the standard of food as it was excellent....More
