Ate at Grill'd on a recent trip to Cairns for work. Essentially this is just a burger bar which is also licenced to sell liquor, but it is actually so much more. The service at Grill'd was exceptional and as I am a bit of a fussy eater, I ordered my own burger made just how I wanted it with... More

If you consider American burger places like Fuddruckers and Beck's Prime as great burgers, then you'll likely find Grill'd as average. BUT - as far as the beef I sampled in Australia went, the burgers were very good, well prepared and reasonably priced. Worth the time if you want a burger, as long as you understand it may fit your... More

We first visited this food delight a few years back with family, we loved it because it suited all of us, from youngest grandchild to us oldies. My personal favourites are the salads, the only thing missing for me was a great cup of coffee to finish off the meal. We always go back when visiting Cairns.

Grill'd is on a very nice spot along the Esplanade and has a great look and feel to the quirky little joint. Their range was fabulous and each burger could easily be tailored to ones requirements or needs. After we had ordered we had to wait quite a long time to receive our burgers. In fact longer than my family... More

Good, but too much pepper in one of the sandwiches that my friend asked and she wasn't told about that.

Having eaten in many "Grill'd" throughout Aussie we were expecting the usual good quality however both of us were extremely disappointed the buns were stale, my partners beef burger was grisly & the veggie patty on my bugger was so bad I removed it. The table was dirty although the waiter did wipe it down after he delivered our burgers.... More

Really delicious burgers. Loads of options--beef, chicken, lamb or vegetarian (and all veg burgers are vegan too), plus gluten free options as well. The chips have a great spice to them and all the burgers have really amazing flavor combinations. Went back multiple times in my short trip to Cairns!

There are so many options along Cairns esplanade! Chose Grill'd because of the awesome kombi we spotted walking down the esplanade enroute to finding dinner No its not cheap. But when you look at the number of staff, quality of ingredients and the location you can see why the prices cant match mcdonalds ;) The food is delicious, you feel... More

Had a great burger, can't remember the name but it was something lamb with goats cheese and halloumi, one of the best burgers I've had in Australia. Prices are reasonably expensive, $12-$15 for a burger, extra for chips and drinks.

I wasn't disappointed by my first experience of Australian restaurant cuisine! Great service, great atmosphere, great burgers! I have a soft spot for chips too, and the chips at Grill'd are great! Though bear in mind they aren't included with the burger itself.
