“Bit of a puzzle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Not sure where this place is coing from. Comes across as kind of trendy, yet beachy, with nice touches with the food. The coffee was good. Some of the crew were dressed conservatively, some beachy. It is wide open to the street with a nice view. Overall food was tasty and experience quite pleasant. Fairly expensive for what you get, but this is an American speaking.

“This place has a lot of potential!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Came for lunch with 3 friends after a funeral service. We wanted a quiet place to sit and talk over coffee/food. The coffee was made promptly and it wasn't that good . My Hazelnut Chai was too sweet. My Pomegranate salad with Chorizo on the other hand was super delicious! The view was simply breathtaking on that day. The service however rather scarce but in this case when all we wanted was to be left alone, we were thankful that there were no wait staff hovering above our table.

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I am a regular at Fratelli and have always loved the food and vibe of this cosy restaurant right on the beach. Went back after the renovation and it took my breath away. It looks amazing and the owners have done a great job opening it up with bi-fold doors and wooden louvres. It's modern and fresh but has managed to retain its appeal. It beckons and is highly recommended. I love this place.

“poor value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

The meal we had was very average and didn't showcase the ingredients at all well. We ate at a few places in Trinity Beach and this was by far the stand out failure.

“Food is ok and no service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Went for breakfast with friends. The location is perfect but as is the case with the majority of places in Cairns, you can't just rely on your location to succeed. It wouldn't be hard for starters for the owner to crack a smile! Service was ok but we had to keep asking for water and when they came over with our food we had to hold on to our coffee as the tables are small and the chairs are pretty uncomfortable and small too. We won't be going back as there are other places we frequent with much better food and service!
