“C'est tres bien!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Wow - boy am I glad we ate here! I was attending a course at the Pullman Hotel (behind C'est Bon) and we had the set three-course menu one night for dinner. Firstly, the service was fantastic - our meals came out perfectly timed (despite 30+ people at our table) and everyone was really friendly and topping up our water and wine efficiently. The atmosphere is delightful too - we sat outside on the deck with our large group but it wasn't too hot or too cold, just right.

The food was exceptional! I tried veal sweetbread with potato puree for entree for the first time - delightful! I had the porkbelly for the main which was a bit tough but worth persisting with as the flavours were delicious. Dessert was chocolate mousse - yummy! And all $45, so very impressed.

Would highly recommend a visit to C'est Bon if visiting Cairns!

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Visited the restaurant last month on our last night in Cairns. Beautiful meal in lovely surroundings. The chef is very passionate about his food. Service was excellent. I ordered a bottle of Chardonnay which when I tasted it I didn't like. No problems it was changed for another bottle with no fuss at all. Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent French cooking in tropical Cairns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

My uncle, a gourmet and wine expert, reserved a table for us at C'est Bon. The food exceeded our expectations, the service was great, the wine list outstanding--all making for a perfect evening for six of us (ranging in age from 13 to 73). My boys will never look at food the same way again--they now know what is possible!

“Function”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

I had my admission as a solicitor function here and I cannot sing the praises for this restaurant enough. I have eaten here on many previous occasions for work lunches and it was my top pick for my function.

Everything was without fault. The food was beautiful, the service was impeccable and the hospitality was above and beyond.

Thank you to Nicolas and Kev for providing such an excellent function. So much attention to detail.

They even took photos for us.

We loved it so much we having my Nonna's 90th birthday function.

“Excellent service and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

We ate dinner here twice on a recent trip to Cairns. On both occasions, the food and service were excellent. The waitstaff are friendly and efficient without being overbearing. Every dish we ate was excellent. Authentic, tasty and reasonably priced. The wine list is also pretty decent. Nice overall atmosphere. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Cairns.
