This is a very busy restaurant but it... More

Approximately 40 of us dined at Linga Longa for lunch, yesterday. I couldn't wait to get onto this site to sing it's praises! The owner is a magnificent host and, prior to the meal, he had his chefs come out and explain the African themed fare. It was very obvious that the entire staff truly cared about the quality of...

Went to Linga Longa for a Friday night night with friends. The atmosphere when we arrived was buzzing. The service we received from the owner was exceptional. I cannot say enough about the food, the duck was absolutely delicious. My husband had a South African curry which I believe was on the specials board, he was still singing its praises... More

I wrote a review a while back after our second visit. We have since returned several more times (always Sunday lunch, quiet and intimate) and we are still constantly blown away by the food and the service. I cannot think of a single criticism. Elie is a real treat, makes you feel like family. It is by far our favourite... More

You go out for dinner for the food, service and overall dining experience. Yes, Elie has it down to a perfectness that should be the "template" of more restaurants in Cairns, Australia and the World...................and my wife... More
