Lovely spot since they moved from lake St which wasn't good at all!! Problem with this restaurant is the owner, he is arrogant and unpleasant. Food beautiful but pricy for what you get. Such a shame as I would go more often if he wasn't there all the time.

Since trying this pizza I have been back numerous times. The pizza is by far the best in Cairns and is absolutely delicious. I have both had pizza delivered and pick up myself and each and every time the staff are always friendly and super helpful. A great little family takeaway that is Definitely worth a try.
