A beautiful seaside location, intimate dinning or great for small groups as limited seating only and for most nights you really should book or run the risk of missing out. Your host is very talented at making you feel warmly welcome and also respecting your privacy and the food speak for itself. The banquet gives you a taste of everything... More

The food was truly amazing!!! My husband and my 7 year old son dined at Star Apple we had the most amazing meal which all three of us totally enjoyed. Ray is just wonderful - he offered to cut up my little mans meal for him - that kind of service never happens. The Rendang was to die for and... More

I came here to celebrate three of my friend's birthday at different times of course and thought it was great. The food was brilliantly done and the service was just fantastic. It is quite a romantic spot as well if you like with a stunningly quiet location. I have been back a couple of times since and still enjoy it.... More

I have been to this restaurant now several times...... From the moment you enter to the time you leave the service is personable, friendly and welcoming..... The food is absolutely AMAZING.... The menu lends itself to tantalising all taste buds and addresses the needs of all patrons who are dining.... If staying/living in the city as we do, the BYO... More

I recently had what was quite possible one of the best meals I've ever had in a suburban restaurant. Apart from the delicious Indonesian food, the ambience and service were excellent.

If you haven't been to have dinner at this delightful restaurant, and you enjoy Indonesian food (although there are other, equally good non-Indonesian dishes available), then you haven't sampled the best food Cairns has to offer! This delightful restaurant (The Star Apple), is tucked away at the southern corner of Sims Esplanade, within the relaxing and exotic sound of the... More

Interesting Asian inspired menu, well executed, with warm and friendly casual service. All set in a beautiful tropical garden setting (so consider some personal insect repellant as you'd expect in the tropics, although on our visits it's never been a problem). The people behind Star Apple also had Lemonade Tree in Cairns some years back, so locals in the know... More
