Breaky buffet

On weekends this place offers a fantastic breakfast buffet. Good value for money! Service is always good and you get welcomed like a old friend.

We stopped for lunch and weren't disappointed with the food or service. The wait staff were very helpful and responsive. We had oysters kilpatrick and a calzone; freshly prepared, delicious food. Good value for money. Would go back anytime.

The ideal waterfront location, excellent size meaning more tables available for those without bookings, A+ service with a smile and the food was delicious! Dining at this restaurant was the highlight of my weekend in Cairns!

We came up from Melbourne, and found Villa Romana had the best service, the authentic Italian Risotto to die for. Compliments to the chef!!!!!!

$12.00 take away pizzas are great. Service was quick and very efficient. Staff were helpful and friendly and went out of their way to provide assistance if required. Not surprisingly the restaurant was full of people.

I had a superb Calamari for an entree and a Signature Seafood Spaghetti dish as a main course. They were just belisimo. There was no room for dessert. And to top it of, I got a 15% discount for getting there before 6.30pm.

We took a benefit of early bird offer (if you sit and order before 18:30 you get 15% discount). Really liked my pasta. It was hot and tasty. Service was a bit slow (you need to make an effort if you want waiter to notice you).

We had breakfast here twice, reasonably priced, good food and great location. You can also get a breakfast smorgasbord although we had individual dishes. Recommended.

We arrived around 4:30 pm so we got the 15% discount for dining before 6pm. Our lemon lime and bitters were a generous size, and not out of a bottle - nice... We had the surf and turf. The steak was tender, prawns were huge and sauce was beautiful. The mash and fresh vegetables were just a delight to eat.... More
