I know there are steakhouses and I know there are restaurants that talk themselves up when it comes to cooking steaks in Cairns. May I suggest no-one gets close to C'est Bon's Eye Fillet. By far the best.....and try the Chocolate Fondant....Wow!

Ordered the set menu - sliiiight let down with the pork main lacking juice to make up for the saltiness (I say this mostly though because entrée and dessert were so fantastic, and I was jealous of the person next to me who ordered the beef cheeks!) Absolutely GORGEOUS service, our waiter was so kind and funny and terribly French!... More

C'est Bon Restaurant is always one of the first restaurants we choose for a special occasion. Returned last night and again the food, service, staff and ambience was first class. Love the 3 course menu options, as they are varied and always amazing value. Thanks and will continue to frequent your outstanding restaurant.

I celebrated my birthday lunch with my family at Cèst Bon. The food was delicious and the service could not be faulted. I will definitely be coming back again in the near future.
