Having been a bit underwhelmed by the other restaurants, we took a punt on Perrotta's - thank goodness we did. Top shelf meals with excellent presentation - my 8hour lamb shoulder was pullapart tender with middle eastern flavourings and presented artistically. Dessert was the almond pannacotta - also a great combination of flavours and visuals. Could do with a broader... More

The place is nice and food is tasty. However portions are rather small taking into a count the price of the meals.

I wanted to like this place. I ordered the calamari salad, I couldn't finish it - something about it wasn't right. The chips we good - and I liked the vibe. Maybe I just ordered wrong.

Perrotta's is always a good address for great Italian food, lovely coffee, refreshing smoothies and of course cocktails. Absolutely great staff, especially Jimmy, always very friendly, courteous and has a good sense of humor :) Definitely a place I highly recommend!

I have been going to Perrotta's for years. I love the setting - perfect for people-watching. The service is wonderful and the food is interesting, well-presented and delicious. A top spot in Cairns. Good for group bookings as well.

Looks pretty fancy for far North Queensland. My group escaped the waterfront restaurants thinking they'd be tourist traps. Well.. We just walked straight into one. Breads and chips for starters. Uncooked small serving for $10. The bread was toasted in a toaster and the garlic flavour was absent despite the fancy name. Flavour free pasta prevented us from risking another... More
