Description: 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.

“Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

I went with my partner and we each had three courses. Each meal was excellent and service was great - a friendly and efficient waitress.

Cocktails were well made and tasty, with of course the view of Trinity Beach makes the experience hard to beat.

“The reason we moved to Trinity Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Well I have to admit it's not the only reason we moved to Trinity Beach, my inlaws live here too! When we would come to visit the first thing my husband and I would want to do is go for a long lazy lunch at L'unico's. Sitting out on the deck with a cocktail in hand gazing across the road to the tropical turqoise waters was the perfect way to kick off our holidays. Now we get to do this almost every weekend! We really enjoy the food, they always seem to have the freshest, creamiest oysters. Our favourite thing though would be the staff, they do seem to have a wee bit of a turnover issue, but the long term staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and easy going.

“Friendly and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Great view and friendly waitresses, willing to accommodate changing the menu up a little bit. Reasonably priced for that area.

“Relaxed meal in tropical paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a perfect place to watch sit out on the deck across the road from the palm tree and ocean at beautiful Trinity Beach. The menu is very broad and I found it hard to decide on a dish. In the end the pasta I chose was delicious and fresh. The service was very attentive.
