Zephyr restaurant is in a nice location with an open air terrace overlooking the water. Staff at the restaurant are friendly, efficient and attentive. For an island resort, the menu is quite good as is the service and quality of the meals.

We haven’t expected much, as this was almost the only restaurant at the island + it did have a lot of bad reviews. We had a dinner there - with squid for entry, barramundi and eye fillet stake for main, and white mousse and cream...brûlée dessert. Mains were amazing !!! 10 out of 10. Entry and desserts were good as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Regarding prices - it’s not overpriced , mains are $ 29-45 , what is not much more expensive since than in Cairns restaurants. Desserts $16-18. Definitely recommend !More

Other reviews refer to the price of food, but the real issue is the sub-standard quality of the breakfasts and dinners. Just compare with that offered on the Cairns boardwalk (and the prices are similar). The courtesy and friendliness of staff compensate somewhat and also...that of the view. You'd be advised to bring some sustenance.More

MOst of the meals where quite over priced to be honest with a small seve for the steak which was $30 ,you want value for money if your going to pay for that sort of money ,most of the meals where delicious though ...

We had 5 breakfasts and 2 dinners there and it was always delicious! The personal is very nice and happy to help! There are several options for the breakfast so you can return several times and taste different things. Dinner's menu has less variety. The...price might be a little bit higher than on mainland but it's worth it, especially with the beautiful view from the terrace! I really recommend it if you are staying at the resort !More

We stayed on the island for 3 nights for my 50th birthday and enjoyed our dinner and breakfast at Zephyrs. The staff were lovely and accommodating and did their best to cater for our dietary requirements. Big shout out to waitress Sami B who delivered...the best customer service we've experienced. Sami offered warm friendly good vibes, knowledge of the menu, great energy and made our experience on the Island special. We felt really looked after. The only thing that would make it better is if it were open later, on one of the nights we felt we needed to rush to finish our meals by 9pm when the restaurant closed and would have loved to have stayed longer, over a drink, dessert etc The food was amazing, as someone who is restricted by a gluten and dairy free diet, the chef did a great job in modifying some of the dishes. We look forward to returning to the Island for more dining experiences at Zephyrs.More
