Rattle and Hum offers a good variety of fast food choices. (Burgers, Seafood, Pizza, Steaks, Salads,) along with a reasonable bar range of beers and spirits. The best value is the outside dining right on the footpath where "people watching" and observing the procession of vehicles cruising past is best enjoyed. Inside offers A/C dining with appropriate music and TV... More

i really enjoyed eating, and drinking at Rattle in Cairns, spent a few days, and nights here, right out the front of Global Backpackers on the Esplanade, right opposite the Lagoon, great atmosphere, food, drinks (too many) service, a top spot, and spent time at Rattle in Port Douglas too, also PJ's, and the Pier in Cairns, all really enjoyed....

Echoing many of the reviews below - if you're on the esplanade, just keep walking.. :) This place is confused, as if it wants to be a bar or a restaurant. It has the potential to be a nice restaurant, maybe something in the vain of outback steakhouse/outback jacks/ chilis... Wait staff were okay, but seem to be hired purely... More

Awesome meals and cold drinks. Great location, very good prices, and fabulous choice from Pizza to Barra and everything in between. The decor delivers that rustic feel, and plenty of staff on hand to serve.

I have eaten alot in restaurants, but if have never seen such terrible place. It seems to be a place, but when sat on the terrace it was too loud, so when sat inside. Apparently they where confused, because when got what we ordered. We had to wait, wait and to wait. They kindly gave us free drinks, but it... More

Only went to this restaurant because me and my partner were walking down the street near the beach and really wanted salmon, saw that this place had salmon, wish we just kept walking. When our salmon arrived half an hour later, it was like a brick of charcoal, I couldn't taste any salmon at all, I took one bite and... More
