This is a very special restaurant, especially in Cairns. As a tourist town restaurants tend to cater for those who may pass their way but once. As a local it is difficult to find a restaurant that has consistent quality, a caring professional staff who know they will get return visits from the natives. We are one of the natives... More

The wonderful staff are always so welcoming at this lovely and stylish restaurant. Together with swish decor, great food and wine, you can usually be sure of an excellent dining experience. If there is an occasional "blip" and you inform staff, you will be taken seriously. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend Nicolas, Lina and Kevin, always greeted with a smile, professional but unobtrusive service and very attentive to detail. The Food I love, I have frequented this restaurant on a regular basis for many years and never has the food been better. I was a Chef for 28 years and consistency and quality is the key for me...

Having been a client for many years, and a Cairns local at that, C'est Bon is my favourite Cairns restaurant. I find their fare innovative & beautifully presented on a fresh white tablecloth with good china, cutlery and glassware so you can appreciate not only the food, but their extensive wine list. Have a chat to Lina who works the... More

I am a Cairns Local and have been to C'est Bon many times. I always look forward to the experience. It is a restaurant that I always sit down at with the intention of enjoying a three-course meal - which is always sublime. The staff are welcoming and friendly. I generally have a seafood entree - my favourite being scollops... More

For many years now C'est Bon has been our favourite restaurant in Cairns and we go there for all our special occasions. We have never been disappointed with the food - always delicious, carefully prepared and beautifully presented. We often have the opportunity to try really different dishes that we would not find elsewhere. The staff have remembered our names... More

My husband and I have just returned from a three week holiday in France and can honestly say that although the food was fabulous it still was not as good as our favourite restaurant in Cairns....C'Bon.

I went there hoping to show to my italian boyfriend the good french food and i was a bit disappointed. First because the "coq" au vin wasn't a "coq" but just chicken. Apart from that, the "wine chicken" was quite good. My boyfriend took beef and said that it was amazing. Second, because, when i saw "creme caramel" on the... More
