Given it's location within and part of the Cairns Hilton I have higher expectations than this bistro delivers.

situated on the ground floor of the Hilton Cairns, Mondo cafe Bar and Grill has the best hotel food menu I experience for a very long time. Head Chef Kulasekera and his team are masters in delivering quality fresh flavorsome meal to any one. Great menu, great choices,

Visited on a Tuesday night which was kids night. Lots of families can enjoy the experience with the kids being entertained and the adults can eat and drink and just watch them having fun.
