Our Favourite Restaurants

For the best steak in town book a table at the Waterbar and Grill.  If you are feeling like French Cuisine C’est Bon is the answer.  While if you have a desire for Thai food the pick is upstairs on the Esplande at Iyara by Sakare.

Next make a booking at Ochre Restaurant along the Waterfront its a fantastic choice no matter what the celebration.

Family fun can be enjoyed at Grill’d and Schnitz both on the Cairns Esplanade.   Fetta’s Greek Taverna is always fun with a fantastic set menu.

For Breakfast lunch or dinner head to Edge Hill and Noa.

Looking to impress book a table at Tamarind Restaurant at the Reef Casino the Duck Curry is outstanding.

We love La’Pizza for the best Pizza in town the Zucca and Da Montania are our favourites.

Vegans will love Root and Snoogies Health Bar

We are rounding our Cairns restaurant page up with  Dundee’s with two locations we love the calamari, apple and rocket salad.  Dundee’s is always great and can cater for big groups and celebrations.
