The food at the Bayleaf is always of the highest standard. The only negative aspect of the experience was how hot it was inside. We requested to dine inside as we are well aware of the heat up here. It was probably cooler outside. All in all the food out ways this minor negative aspect. This place offers the best... More

Our first visit to Cairns. The Bayleaf was recommended by a shop owner in the CBD. Busy night (Saturday) so we were only able to get a table outside, which was okay, except that we did tend to notice the constant traffic on Lake Street just a few metres away from the table. Nevertheless, the food was wonderful, and the... More

I have been going to the Bayleaf for years and although the menu doesn't change, it is all so delicious. The servings are ample and it's very hard to finish but you keep trying because you can't believe how incredible it is. It is so authentic and all the courses are well balanced. I have never been disappointed

The Bayleaf was recommended quite a few years ago and I have visited a few times. The food is always interesting, tasty and that little bit out of the ordinary combinations. Last night was no different, our meals were well presented, tasty and just that little bit quirky in combination. Unfortunately the drinks were still slow in coming. I often... More

Excellent tasty food. The set menu if you are hungry is amazing. You get to try quite few different dishes with a wine perfectly suited for it. Service was of a high standard. Probably better to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

In Cairns for a few days on Business. Walked to this restaurant on a recommendation. I found the service to be good and attentive. Waitress told me her name and to just ask if I needed anything. I enjoyed the marinated fish in a banana leaf which was delicious. I received water and my wine promptly but the fish was... More

My second visit to this restaurant, it was great the first time and just as nice the second. The food was lovely and balanced and fresh. We chose a banquet which gave us the chance to taste a range of their lovely food. The only small criticism was the service , whilst very friendly it was quite slow..we waited about... More
