The new extensions are a surprise when you first see them.   They are tasteful and I am looking forward to spending some time there.

Dining is still on the deck overlooking Dickson's Inlet and the mountains beyond giving one of the best outlooks of any Port Douglas eatery.
We had a Fisherman's Basket and the Fish and Chips with the Rothbury Chardonnay for about $70 all up.

We had been looking forward to dining in this new quirky restaurant where Fins used to be.

What a wonderful place to watch the people go by on a day when Macrossan Street was buzzing with activity.
We are not into the tourist season proper and yet there were lots of people enjoying the various dining experiences on offer in Macrossan Street. All this was on a Tuesday on a not brilliant day with the odd shower and lots of wind.
