My daughter and I were there in March and we had a meal that was a gastronomic delight and when we return we will certainly seek this restaurant out again absolutely awesome for service too. Nothing was too much trouble despite the inclement weather which was why we were there in the first place. Queensland Rail could not have chosen a better place to take us to dinner.Thanks to all.

What can I say - if you want to eat fish in Cairns, go to Pesci's on the Water. Had a lovely family meal here, good food, good service, good wine, and beautiful location.

I would like to pass on my sinserest thanks to Lou and his highly professional staff for their flawless service and quality food during the state dinner at a conference held in Cairns recently. It is so rare nowdays to have professional service combined with a quality product delivered with a side of good humour under enormous pressure.
Lou and his staff are to be commended for delivering all of the above. I recommend to anyone looking for beautiful food and excellent service to head straight for Pesci's as I will when next in Cairns.
