An absolutely delightful seafood lunch with a view of the warf. Service staff were friendly and helpful. Had some of the best calamari in Australia.

Hello Marek,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your seafood lunch with us - our calamari is one of our most popular dishes with many of our diners returning just for that. :)

We hope to see you back on the water front in the future.

Have a great day!

Best regards
Dundee's Management

Visiting Cairns on our 3 week holiday to Australia.
Went to Dundees with friends. Food was good, but some of it was cold, as it took over half an hour to arrive and was only served when we asked our waitress for it.
When paying we were charged extra for using credit card, and challenged this, were told new policy as they are a small business and can not afford to bear the charges imposed by the card company.
The restaurant must have had a couple hundred guests.
I do not call that a small business.

Its a lovely spot overlooking the water . The food was ok. I didn't think the calamari was worth the money. We went so we could try the crocodile.

Hello Sandra,

Thank you for your review and we are sorry on this occasion our food was not to your liking. Our calamari is actually one of our most popular dishes and many people return to dine just for that, which is reflected in many of our reviews, but we understand it's not everyone's taste.

Have a great day.

Best regards

Poor service over lunch, 2 of 5 mains arrived while still eating entrees, 3 remaining mains arrived 15 minutes later, 1 dish was wrong and had to be rectified (10 minutes)..... Not really a lunch together.

Watch the "SURCHARGE" on credit cards, staff did not advise and obviously the signage is not sufficient to notify all customers.

Food was ok.

Thank DanielE1466
