Called in on spec one afternoon, warm welcome, not at all stuffy as you would expect a boat club to be. Had a bar snack to share which turned out to be enormous! Much to the amusement of the bar chappie I asked for a 'cold beer' (as a really sweltering Pom it seemed necessary to ask) he assured me... More

Had Chicken Parma and crispy salmon here on a Tuesday night. All meals came out in reasonably good time. Chicken Parma was quite good and a well sized dish. Salmon was also nicely cooked and tasty. Haven't been for a while but going by this visit we'd visit again. A nice setting but beware of mozzies, they were thick! Staff... More

Just making the reservation was a sign of the level of service. After waiting a full minute or more on the phone (and it was pre lunch time so not during service) the phone was answered "hello", i had to check that I had the right number??? What about, "welcome to Driftaways restaurant, how can I help you?" once seated... More

When you visit Cairns you have to have lunch at Yorkeys Knob boat house just North of Cairns. Saturdays they have a special $12 for a dozen oysters, so we had to have a dozen each, service is friendly and exceptional, relaxed atmosphere. Great view of the marina and ocean, yum, yum, yum.

Enjoyed a lunch here with family and friends. NO complaints with any meals, all were enjoyed and a decent size. Lovely view overlooking the ocean and blue waters of Yorkey's kNob. Good service and were very accommodating of a big grop without a booking. Kid friendly with a playground and colouring stuff is an extra $1.
