Not easy to review this place - the food is very good, but some aspects are unsatisfactory. Our waitress was a lovely young lady, but had a limited command of English. So, our request for the order in which we wanted the dishes delivered to the table was completely wrong. (Of course, this could have been the kitchen's fault.) The... More

We stopped in for a few tapas and a drink. Service was very good and tapas were very tasty - but perhaps a little pricey.

We did a long lunch for 13 people at Seabean, the tapas menu was fantastic, the service great and it was very good value too. One of the highlights of dining in Port Douglas.

We came her for a light tapas lunch and ended up coming back for dinner, it was so good. Very friendly staff and service. Tapas is awesome for a light lunch and the paella just as nice for dinner! OMG - You must try the creme brûlée served in a coconut shell for desert, just divine!

Could not fault Seabean. Every tapas dish we ordered was amazing!! We've got two young boys and they loved it all as much as we did. The scallops were a highlight (they were a special on the night) but everything was great. We rolled out of there very satisfied and best dinner we had in Port Douglas.

Tapas are good sized we had the Soft Shell Crab Sliders (very large sliders), the Albondigas (meatballs) and the Patatas Bravis (potato) plus the Churro for dessert, the quantity was quite sufficient for us (3 women). All delicious. Churros came with chocolate sauce, but no... More

We had a really nice selection of tapas this evening. It was genuinely as close to real Catalonian as you can get I reckon. Good selection of specials and drinks also. Well recommended!
