As a Cairns local that works in the service industry I have eaten at many restaurants in Cairns and overall have found them average if not below.

"No off nights here" - no, just regular, ordinary pub grub. Gosh, I go to these Cairns restaurants with on open mind, so ever hopeful that I'll experience something that I can truly say that I've eaten food that's produced with gastronomic flair. Food that will impress me. I've dined at Linga Longa three times and not once have I... More

Firstly, thank you for your feedback. Everyone is entitled to their opinion which is what Trip Advisor encourages. I'm sure you fully knew and would not like it yourself for your food to be called ordinary pub grub. As you stated, we do pride ourselves on great customer service but we also pride ourselves on quality food. Whatever it was... More

This is my third review of this restaurant and I still can't fail it. 5 stars every time. My hubby and I have lunch there on a Sunday on average 3 times a month.

We've been regulars at this restaurant for a number of years now, for these reasons.... consistently good food (simple dishes well cooked and presented), unfailingly excellent service (even on the busiest of nights), and an ambiance that apparently fits the demographic perfectly. Value? Absolutely. This is a place that wears its professional heart on its sleeve and you won't see... More

This beautiful restaurant has a fantastic specials menu which to be honest is what keeps me coming back to this place.

We are currently in the works to relocate to Cairns from Sydney. While up looking for property my friend said we must eat at Longa Longa in Edgehill.

Heard some stories about how good this place was. Somebody was talking it up. Thought we better give it a try. Firstly, the menu didn't suggest much choice, maybe more of a pub menu....with the specials in the same boat. Secondly, the wine list( while I will drink almost anything) was a little short on imagination. The service was ok... More

Dear reviewer, thank you for your feedback about the menu and the wine list. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I am not sure what informed your opinion that our menu was "more of a pub menu"? Which pub serves the variety of dishes we do: duck, lamb, chicken, steak, fish, seafood, pasta and risotto, quail, pork belly, vegetarian.... More
