A perfect spot for afternoon drinks

A great bar with a good choice of drinks and food. You will see lots of tourists and locals here. The wood fired pizzas are great but drinks have pretty standard pricing. There isn't any live music here and the place dies not too late into the night. There's big screens with all the sports... read more

Food in Cairns tends to be over-priced, but I found Rattle n Hum to be much better value than most places in town. The food was good and comes out pretty quickly. Bar service was friendly and attentive, and they had some good drink specials.

Central location on the Esplanade, great atmosphere with quirky decor, quick service, reasonable prices and the best steaks we've had for a long time.

The atmosphere at this restaurant was pretty good. It was very busy, and very very loud! The wait staff were young and a bit uninterested,smiling seemed to be off the menu. Our food came out quickly, and was pretty typical pub grub. it took a while for empty glasses and plates to be removed from our table. I wouldn't really... More

Had the margarita pizza which had a good crispy crust and tasty toppings, though certainly not anything special. We had no service since we went to the counter to order food and drinks, but I think they do have servers because I saw them walking around. This is a good place for people watching, and is suitable for families early... More

Food is good, beer is cold and there's big screens if you're into sport. Have been a repeat customer when I'm after a no fuss kind of place to have a feed and a beer. Chicken Parma 7.5/10

The service we received was of a good standard. You could tell that the waitress was a little flustered but she explained that it was her first night so that is to be expected. The food on the other hand went downhill. The steak which was ordered rare was more like medium - medium well there must have been a... More

A large bar / restaurant that caters to the mass market - mainly typical pub food, and in our case - pizzas. Attractive and efficient young servers were kept busy as patrons turned over fairly quickly. We had a table adjacent to a busker and enjoyed his routine, as well as our pizzas and Central Otago Pinot Noir. An outside... More

This place is a good spot for a casual lunch or dinner with a pretty good atmosphere. The food is typical pub food - nice without being amazing. We would definitely go there again.
