Loved it. Food excellent, service excellent, great ambience. Really enjoyed the night. Can recommend the lamb rack (which was an evening special) and the chocolate fondant! The trio of seafood was also delish.

First impressions were good, I liked the look of the place. A noisy little restaurant with staff moving tables around during the night to fit different groups in. Probably not the best place for a couples night out due to the noise and the amount of movements going on, however we did have a bit of a laugh with other... More

In over 30 years of living and dining in Cairns I have seen the ebbs and flows. In more recent times I have seldom be anything other than disappointed by the fare presented by all but a very special few establishments in Cairns. Until now I had never found a restaurant that ticked every box and ticked it very well.... More

We just enjoyed our first meal at Linga Longa, and all I can say is Wow! Literally from the second we arrived, we were greeted like the most loyal customers of the restaurant. It only got better from there. The service was attentive without being obtrusive, and our waiter (we did not know he was the owner at the time)... More

Once again Linga Longa have shown their commitment to maintaining their friendly and welcoming standard. From the time we walked in the door the staff were friendly and helpful.

Your an idiot, do you not understand that I am a potential customer. You were so rude.....terribly sorry for using your toilet, it will never happen again... More

A central location with ample parking out the front in downtown Edge Hill. The food quality is very good and also very tasty but I'd have to say a little overpriced. The menu offers a great selection of all types of dishes from entress, mains and of course deserts and coffees.

If that's what you are looking for and you are prepared to pay a... More
