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

Thank you for your review. I am the owner to whom you referred to in your review. I'd be happy to talk to you in person about your experience but as it was almost a year ago that you visited I don't think I will remember the night you came. I see you came in August last year which was... 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...

So it was date night tonight and we'd heard so many good things about Linga Longa we decided to give it a try. Lovejoy had looked up the menu online and had already decided on the pork belly but I wanted to see the specials board. When we drove into the car park we were greeted by a very enthusiastic...

I have had my first experience visiting Linga Longa as a local and it was fantastic. I must say my meal was tantalizing... cooked to perfection. The staff were very attentive and friendly. This restaurant located in Edge Hill is a winner for local and visitors.

Just had a great night out at Linga Longa- Service started with the owner helping me into a car park outside the restaurant and finished with a fantastic meal, with yummy desserts and a small glass of port to finish. Our night was a special family celebration and the staff at the restaurant were super attentive, helpful and friendly. We... More

This restaurant is a hidden treasure in Cairns. The staff were amazing, the atmosphere was lovely and the food was perfect. I couldn't recommend it more. As a local I am extremely surprised that I have only experience it once and I was taken away. The price is also reasonable.

Linga Longa would rate as one of the best restaurants in Cairns yet so few people living in Cairns seem to know it. We are locals and often mention it to other food lovers and to our surprise they dont know it. It is located in Edge Hill not far from our beautiful botanical gardens and you could easily drive...

Being a qualified chef of nearly 20 years and having travelled over 45 countries and countless cities on our pale blue dot. I have experienced a vast variety of cuisine, but I was surprised to find such a gem in my own backyard. The food and service at Linger Longer was second to none, after having experienced Michelin star restaurants,... More
