My wife and I went to LL for dinner on Sunday(9/8). Elie was there as usual. We had wonderful grilled S&P calamari as an entrée. Main course: I had an eye fillet(medium rare), pepper sauce, mustard on the side and crisp fries. Mouth watering fillet. Great value for money. My wife had a baked barra. Absolutely perfectly done. Nice and... More

Cairns is truly spoilt with this gem! The staff are attentive, the food is well rounded with quality choices for all tastes, great wine cellar and it's lovely & quiet. You can have a conversation in comfort without talking over hub-bub & loud music. The atmosphere is perfect. I don't think it will be a secret for much longer and... More

Lovely night at this small but excellent restaurant. Menu is varied, good choices. Duck was moist tender and very tasty, pork belly to die for, just how it should be cooked, crispy crackling and yummy juicy meat. Vegies tasty and all well presented. Service excellent, good wine list. The desserts - I had creme brulee which was torched to perfection... More

I've eaten at Linga Longa a number of times, & have always enjoyed the delicious meals & hospitable ambience. This time we wanted to try the tapas side of the restaurant. We were delighted. Each selection was perfect. The service was charming. We couldn't have asked for a better night out. Thank you Eli & family. We'll be back.

The accompanying vegetables were interesting .We have continued to... More

We visited one night to meet over some business strategy. The food was good and the service was also very good however the owner exuded a certain attitude which made us feel alienated to an extent. He strutted through his establishment like he owned the place, which he did, however this put me off and gave me a sense of... More

First timers to this restaurant but certainly not the last. From the street it's unassuming, but the ambience inside is warming and the staff so welcoming.. The menu is exciting and our wait staff were knowledgeable on wine selections for pairing. The owner visited our table for a chat too, he's a lovely genuine fellow who really puts effort into...
