Where do I begin there are heaps of restaurants to go and quite a variety from seafood to Thai.
Vegetable lasagne with chips and salad @ PJ’s O’brians $6.50 backpacker meal deal normally costing $13. Menu changes every night so there is always something new to eat. Meal also comes with a glass of beer.
Another meal deal here in Cairns will be The Pier bar & grill with their $5 pizzas but only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Tolsa’s restaurant in Cairns Central shopping centre on the top floor. But sitting out on the balcony you don’t feel like you are in the shopping centre . Great atmosphere and yummy pasta and the Flat White coffee is marvellous.
Reasonable priced. Found it funny at the cashier they had a tip jar; even though it’s not customary to tip here. And they clearly do not work for their tips; compared to how North Americans work for them.
A relaxed dinner is having a BBQ on the esplanade. All you need to go to woollies (woolworths) and buy what you want to cook and if you share the costs it all works out well.
Want something fancy!? Head on down the esplanade to the Holiday Inn and have Fabian or Hank cook your meal for you – very yummy!
