A tired couple arrived to a very simple restaurant.

Staff very welcoming and caring

We chose the barramundi. Well presented fresh and hot.

Right on the Esplanade worth a visit. We really enjoyed the experience

I chose my venue carefully as I wanted some genuine reef fish - not battered or crumbed. The menu offered a special of pan fried snapper.
I was not disappointed, the fish was perfectly cooked and topped with delicious little chips compiled of a mixture of pumpkin & sweet potato.
Very friendly service, and being able to people watch and look out to the gorgeous beach of Palm Cove is the icing on the cake,

Gorgeous location on the beachfront however sat at tables and chairs closest to rope barrier next to footpath and occasionally felt hemmed in by people walking past. We were seated very quickly and as we knew what we wanted ordered the tasting platter. Our order was taken and our waiter said he would be right back to get out drink orders which didn't happen. Eventually we ordered drinks which took awhile to come. Tasting platter was very nice and good value. Would go back as menu good and good value.

Went to Rising Sun on a whim, because I saw they had a $20 parmy + beer/wine deal that night. Food was great, service was very friendly. Good atmosphere - casual, relaxed. Interesting cocktail menu. Possible locals discount, but unsure of radius
