It is mit what we have booked

Nice Place with a lot of Noise from the Street. Service was poorly Bad. We had to wait for Dome noodles over 45 mins. After complaining we had to learn that there are some Special People who have to be served first. Taste of Food is soso Never ever again.

This place is popular with tourists and with the locals - deservedly so. Service is friendly and efficient - although for the first time on our trip to Australia the food order arrived before the coffee as they were doing such a take away business. I had two perfectly poached eggs on toast. My wife had the grilled lemon pound... More

I have eaten here for years (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and have always experienced excellent food & service here. No other restaurant in Cairns compares. The menu is interesting and exciting without being pretentious and the staff are just fabulous.

As a local, we visit here often. Perrotta's offers a street side atmosphere for casual but elegant dining. The food and service are always consistent, with a menu to suit all tastes. Prices can sometimes be a little hard to justify, but across the board, fair value for the location.

I was looking for something besides eggs, beans and toast. Perrotta's was an excellent choice. I had the fresh orange juice and the french toast, which was fabulous. The service was prompt and location easy to find.

Delicious food in a sweet outdoor cafe. Despite it being alongside the road, the atmosphere is nice and you don't really notice the traffic. A little pricey but totally worth it for the yummy brunches!

My wife and I had lunch at Perrotta's in Meyers in Cairns Central shopping centre. We had bacon and vegetable soup followed by prawns on toast, with a slice of chocolate cake to finish up. My wife had a pot of Earl grey tea, while I had English Breakfast tea. The food was delicious, and served by courteous, helpful waitresses.... More

Perrotta's at the Gallery is in the heart of Abbott Street and the restaurant has a trendy feel to it. The Manager made us feel welcome and the wait staff were polite. The seats are a little hard being cast iron. Maybe some brightly colored cushions on the chairs would be a good idea. My large dish was the prawns... More

Its a decent place. Nothing bad, pretty good outside cafe in Cairns in the busy area, you can sit here for some time, enjoy a good cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a couple of beers. Service is good, staff is very friendly. Their wine selection is good. but that's where my praise ends... Their menu is limited... More

My favourite thing here was the pulled pork benedict. Just awesome. Brilliant Tapas on the lunch menu also. You could close your eyes, put your... More
