Very good food, near the GBR terminal

Salads were very good, however it was a little bit more expensive than we thought it should be. With so many choices in the area, we found better value elsewhere.

Had breakfast here on our first day in Cairns. Staff were underwhelming but luckily the food and especially the coffee more than made up for them. Got the impression that it was all too much trouble to be served. A real shame as the chef clearly knows how to put good food on a plate and the barista how to... More

Located a little bit away from the main hubbub of Cairns gave this restaurant located on a terrace of the art gallery a laid back vibe. The service was okay, the food delicious. My wife had the duck salad which was excellent, I had the steak which was very good. The kids meals were fine. Would recommend this for something... More

Nice ambience by the roadside, but my dish of pasta lacked the oomph of a really good dish. The gravy seemed separate from the pasta and had a bit too much tomato for my taste. Yet my parents had pretty good food though, so they would have probably given 4 stars. They need to improve on their vegetarian options I... More

this place has always been 'cairns'. I've been coming here for over a decade, as a local and as a visitor, and it's always good. food is fresh and bright and the flavours are real. the smoothies and juices are wholesome and the breakfasts are imaginative but not over complicated. home made raisin toast with ricotta and jam and a...

This cafe is quintessential Cairns and there's not a better spot to eat breakfast in this beautiful city, The wide verandahs capture the morning breezes off the ocean and the food is consistently good. Perrottas doesn't have the absolute best coffee in Cairns but it's good enough to satisfy a picky coffee snob from the south and the meals are... More

Missed breakfast Sunday moring so walked up the street from Pullmans Hotel seeking a Cafe with Breakfast. There must be a god, since I stumbled on to Perrotta's. On the corner of Abbotts and Shield Streets in downtown Cairns, this Sicilian gourmet bistro is outragous. The breakfast was soooo good we returned for dinner where I was served one of... More
