Haven't eaten in all of them but like most locals we usually go for Salsa's on Wharf St - however, Two Fish took out the most recent gongs for best restaurant in PD.

Salsa is excellent - we ate there twice when we were on hols last year. Also ate at Zinc which was up on the corner of Macrossan - food nice - pretty ordinary wine list considering the amount of good wine that is available in Aust. Another place that I have heard is really nice though not sure of name but sure your accom front desk will know is a restaurant half way up Macrossan St set back up on a hill amongst the rainforest. They don't take kids and we had our son with us at the time. Aparently it is a great setting amongst the palms. Port Douglas is such a nice place - we went in January and everyone thought we were mad - but we had a great time - hardly any rain - no tourists and on most occasions sensational weather.

Nautilis is the name of the restaurant up under the seclusion of the rainforest - the table area is all outside and they use the fire lamps which gives a great ambience. They don't take kids though which considerng the location etc - wise choice. We had our 8 year old son with us so Nautilis was not an option but he did come to Zinc and Salsa with us.

in 2004 we went to Salt n Peppa or something of tht sort on the water adjacent to the park. Had some great fish (Nannigai (sp?) and coral trout) and a friendly waitress, they had bicycles so you could pop over to the liquor store to buy your wine! As I remember, the corkage fee wasn't too much. Outside dining. I sure hope it is still there because we plan to go back when we are in PD in October.

One of our favourite restaurants in Port Douglas is "On The Inlet". It is situated right at the waters edge with lovely views and it is interesting to watch all the boats going to and from the barrier reef. They have fabulous cocktails, a happy hour and good food. You are in a tropical location so why be closed up in the sort of restaurant you can find anywhere, that's our opinion anyway. We went to Nautilus and although the setting was beautiful, the food was disappointing.
