Description: The Green Ant Cantina is Cairns' best kept secret and has become an institution among its regulars since opening in 2001. We are unique in that we are a bar, a restaurant, a music venue and can cater for functions and parties. Our food takes inspiration from South American, Caribbean and Baja Californian cuisines which showcase the amazing fresh produce available to us here in Cairns. Margaritas, Mojitos and Sangria will quench your thirst along with a beautiful little wine list that focuses on vegan, organic and sustainable wines. We began Green Ant Brewing Co. in 2012 with our ethos to brew small batch craft beers that are additive and preservative free. Our ever growing range boasts a Pilsener, a Pale Ale, a Premium Lager, a Ginger Beer, a Honey Wheat Beer, a Strong Brown Ale and an Imperial Stout.

Good mexican food with big portions. Expensive main menu, but they have deals for backpackers/students most nights, and check with your hostel for vouchers.
