L’Unico Trattoria started life as a small BYO in 1994. Set in an Idyllic location on the waterfront at Trinity Beach about 20km north of Cairns, the word soon spread, and L’Unico quickly became a regular dining spot for tourists and locals alike.In 1997, after three years at Trinity Beach we moved just 400 metres further along the beachfront to take advantage of even better ocean views and new, larger premises complete with wood-fired pizza oven and cocktail bar.

We ate here our first night in Cairns. We Had arrived late in the afternoon, and after checking into the resort, needed a bite to eat. Ordered a few appetizers to share, instead of a full meal. The oysters were fresh, the calamari was delicious, and the cheese dip with crustini was very good also... read more

This is a unique place and not one to be missed. It has a stunning view overlooking the beach. We went there for lunch and ordered the pizza and pasta as well as a couple of beers and spent most of the afternoon talking about how fantastic the service, location and quality of food was. You simply must visit!

This restaurant is located a stones throw from the sea so the location is good. We arrived there at 9pm just after peak time. The restaurant has a chatty atmosphere that isn't too loud. The staff were friendly but I didn't get the drink I wanted as the waitress couldn't understand me, just a minor point against this place. The... More

Took the wife out for a romantic meal. Great atmosphere, great food, awesome personalised service. My wife has food allergies and they not only catered for these but double and cross-checked our choices to make sure the meal was suitable. We are locals and have been before, we will again, and recommend to anyone for a sneaky glass of wine... More

My partner and I called in for a drink on a Friday night. It has a beautiful atmosphere and a variety of interesting cocktails. We decided to order food and we were not disappointed. Great service to compliment everything else. A must visit!

Great pizza, designed our own and no problems them doing it. Great spot on beach front to watch the world go by and the sea views are wonderful. The bar was great and the barman suggested and mixed some great drinks. Friendly and fun staff. Highly recommended!

Having lived at Trinity Beach some 15 years ago L'Unico was always the place for a long lunch, celebratory dinner or a quick cocktail while waiting for a take-away pizza. Back in FNQ on holiday a return visit was high on my list of 'must-do's'. We were not disappointed and are delighted to report that the same excellent and friendly... More
