Having moved to Cairns from England, we were looking for a place that had a good atmosphere but didn't feel like a backpacker's bar. The Rattle n Hum is just that! It is such a good bar and restaurant, the portions are huge, so don't plan for a light meal. I would really recommend the Sea food rattler or the... More

When in Cairns there are so many restaurants to choose from but for value and to enjoy a few drinks in a great atmosphere Rattle N Hum cannot be beaten, makes you feel like your on holidays!!! A special mention to the great service from Bianca and Paris behind the bar who poured a taste of wine when asked what... More

Food was great. Have to order and pick up food at the bar but that's ok. Very busy but otherwise enjoyable. Big portions.

We stayed in Cairns 6 nights and ate dinner there 5 nights. The meals were excellent, the service and atmosphere was fantastic. The waitresses do an outstanding job. Tables are serviced promptly for new guests.

My husband and I dined here the three nights we were in Cairns. We had long, busy days sightseeing and didn't feel the need to look around for other places. The place was always busy but yet we were always lucky enough to find a spot outside so we could enjoy the water views and people watch. Order before 7:00PM... More

Decent pub food (caesar salad, calamari, and nachos were all pretty good for pub fare). Pizza wasn't the best however. Drink mix was expansive. Lots of room, good for kids, pumping music. So good we came back 2x!

We took a couple of friends from Sydney today. After waiting for 55mins our pizza was ready. It was a Zeus Deluxe however it was far from Deluxe, it was the most tasteless dry excuse for a pizza I have ever experienced. Never taking friends there again.

Exactly what it says it is - no pretence - this is were locals and tourists eat - busy venue with indoor and outdoor seating right in the middle of the Esplanade. Passing parade of people from every continent and walk of life from new babies to very elderly - depends on time of day or night. A must for... More

If you're looking for a bar experience then this place rocks! If it's food you're after, give it a miss. Cuisine is listed as pizza and grill. We ordered pizza (mine was the tandoori option), and without a doubt I rate this as one of my "sabena" moments - "such a bad experience, never again"!! Quality: tasteless, tasteless, tasteless!

Great atmosphere. Efficient service. Diverse menu. My daughter wanted a pizza. My husband a burger. They suggested Rattle N Hum. It was really crowed when we got there. You ordered at the counter and picked up yourself, but it was much faster than table service with the crowd, so that was fine with me. Laid back atmosphere, kinda noisy, but... More
