With the Pacific Ocean right on its doorstep, it’s not surprising that Cairns serves up some of the very best seafood in the country. Whether you’re craving calamari or a simple crab sandwich, here are just a handful of the great places to sample fresh seafood during your break.
Located on the Esplanade, just a short stroll from our Cairns holiday apartments, Barnacle Bills is famous for its fantastic beachside location and delicious seafood dishes made from fresh Barrier Reef produce. With everything from Kilpatrick oysters to child-friendly fish and chips available at affordable prices, this popular eatery is sure to be a hit with the whole family.
Splash Seafood Restaurant
Another Esplanade favourite, Splash Seafood Restaurant serves up the finest Tropical North Queensland produce in a stunning Oceanside location. On a warm summer’s day, you will love their light and refreshing chill salt squid salad, while nothing beats their warming prawn, fish, potato and leek chowder after a dip in the ocean.
Rush into this restaurant in Cairns Central for a quick sushi hit in between bargain hunting, or sit back with a relaxing cup of green tea and watch all the delicacies pass under your nose until you spot something truly tempting. Menu highlights include favourites such as Tempura Prawns, Tuna Salad Rolls and scallops. Enjoy!
