A lovely intimate cozy resteraunt. Every time we go there is always something new on the menu to try. Reasonably priced. Ed is always friendly and happy to help/serve. Unfortunately we can't get cocktails. The girls will be back again and again

Had a most pleasant and delicious lunch at Linga Longa. Serge, the owner was welcoming and most attentive. My confit duck was juicy with a crispy skin and a delicious sauce. Couldn't fault it. The fish and chips ordered by my friend was super crispy with the best chips. Desert was wonderful. They have a good comprehensive wine list. A... More

Duck Steak Chicken and Lamb all were amazing and could not be faulted. Then came the sweet sensations. So reasonably priced. Pulled together by the impeccable staff and service. Thanks for a wonderful night.

I had snails for entree. These were possibly the blandest snails i have EVER eaten - disappointing. Needed a little more salt, garlic and parsley.....one chewy piece of cold toast to soak up the virtually non-existant sauce...sad Orange duck was ok, but not amazing. Citrus tart was beautiful. Feather light pastry and perfect lemony tartness. Service was not as genuinly... More

My partner and I were in need of some intimate dining for a special occasion. So, why not return to one of our favourite dining spots. Again, Sergey and his staff, particularly Eduardo, were their normal professional, friendly and hospitable selves. Great atmosphere, great food and excellent wine selection.

My Husband and I ate dinner here on New Years Eve. The food was exceptional. The sesame prawns were incredible. Unfortunately the service was very slow and our waiter while lovely was inattentive. We ordered a second round of drinks which never appeared. I appreciate it was New Years Eve however the restaurant was not full - maybe more staff... More

We couldn't get into this restaurant until 7:30 - an hour later than we wanted. We were told that it was because they were booked out. However, when we got therefore, we could see several spare tables. Our very easily prepared entree took over 30 minutes to arrive and the extra bread that was promised didn't come. However, it was...

A stop at the Linga Longa International Restaurant in the Edge Hill area of Cairns is a solid break away from the overly touristy sections of Cairns. The food is phenomenal and the service is top notch. Take some time to make it out to this location and you won't regret it!

The Atmosphere and Service is lovely. The Menu and Food is very tantalizing to the taste buds. You have to try the Tobiko Pasta. Certainly the rose amongst the thorns when it comes to restaurants in Edge Hill.
