Fodor's Review

Rub shoulders with local foodies and visitors-in-the-know on the deck of this lively waterside institution. The large wooden deck overlooking Dickson Inlet becomes an intimate dining area after sunset. The tropical Modern Australia dinner menu features kangaroo loin, smoked duck breast, herb-crusted barramundi, yellowfin tuna, a house Jambalaya loaded with yabbies (local crayfish), tiger prawns, squid, and crocodile sausage. There's an extensive Antipodean wine list, and happy hour comes daily between 3 and 5, just right for a tropical daiquiri or two. Prebooking's strongly advised.
