Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent service, we sat out on the verandah. Staff were attentive. The food was delicious and big servings. We actually took home some of the pasta as it was such a big serve

Regularly eat here. Beautiful pizza, especially the margarita. Pizza and pasta use fresh ingredients and have not eaten anything that tastes bad here yet. Toilet facilities and under cover parking. Aircon inside nice breeze outside. Usually attentive service. One of our favourite places to eat...in cairns.More

Excellent Pizza, excellent customer service. I enjoyed a leisurely lunch with a few cold local brews. Also has ample choice of outdoor and indoor seating. Thumbs up!

Arrived for Breakfast, even though the cafe had few customers inside we were offered a table right next to another couple, we were eventually given one a bit further away. We were given the menus and asked if we wanted a drink - we ordered...two coffees. About 10 or so minutes later they arrived. We waited about another half hour but the waitress never came back to take our food order. I mentioned it when I paid for the coffee and the young man said “we’re you sitting at the corner table “ I said we were. So they were clearly aware of our presence but did nothing to assist us. The cafe was not particularly busy. We won’t be back nor will we recommend.More

Joanna and I, during the same week, had dinner twice at Hopscotch. The first evening, we ordered two pizzas. Mine, a margarita was very good but to my taste it was a little doughy. Jo's was enjoyable but not spectacular. Returning 2 nights later to...try something different, we chose Penne Amatricianna. Normally, we never order pasta out, but this night, it was 8 pm, and the kitchen was ready to close down for the evening, so we decided to give it a try. Pleasantly surprised, our dinner was absolutely delicious. Combined with a Shiraz from the Borassa Valley and a table on the outside terrace where we could sit next to each other, we had a lovely time. We will be back to gove the pizza another try. Thank you, Frank and JoanneMore

In Cairns for a couple of days and found this place. What a great discovery. The service was friendly and very customer orientated. One of the table staff invited me to talk to the chef about the pizza I wanted as I was seeking genuine...Italian style. The Italian chef knows his pizza. My partner had the crab sauce spaghetti with what for us was something new, a dough topper! She considered it the best pasta dish she has ever tried. Hopscotch will be a go-to whenever we visit cairns.More

Walk into a very quite looking morning in the store regards customers as it was mostly empty front and back and greeted by a lady who took us to the till to apparently pay for a meal.. we were then seated at a table, over...3 tables full of dirty dishes layed all around with multiple staff walking around that looked at them with one even coming over and and placing dirty plates from one table and stacked them on the table next to us already full of dirties.. then left them all there... more staff walked in and out or the area.. 10 min passed and no offer of water with both glasses on the table not washed properly and covered in sticky and fluff/hair and not even given a menu to read... got up to exit and notice frustrated people trying to get staffs attention to pay their own bill at the till while 4 staff were at the coffee machine seemingly noticing but too busy. Im not sure what what's going on but this was a severe let down as everytime returning to the store the let downs get worse which is a crying shame cause first experiences of this store were unbelievably awesome.. More local staff instore would be plus to!More

The sign inside says "you stole a pizza my heart." How true. The food was delicious. I had the papadelle bolognese with a pizza dough topper. Different but nice. Popular choices were Meatball linguine, Pesto penne, Marinara linguine, Amatriciana penne with the pizza topper and...chicken parmigiana. We ran out of time or we would have come back. Thanks to Parmi and Ushula.More

I’ve been here on several occasions for Brekky, brunch and lunch. It has always been good and you can take your dog. The only downfall are the prices. Some of the meal prices are more expensive than Cairns top restaurants and HOPSCOTCH is still a...Cafe type of establishment.More

Magnificent coffee, great food, unbeatable service - you wont be disappointed. We went there after a delivery driver messed up an order from them, and we accepted the value of the delivery meal as a credit and we were blown away how good it was....Other hospitality venue staff mentioned how good it was too along with the local rideshare drivers.More

Was a favourite of ours in 2020. Picked up take away meatballs the other night and they were just like we remembered - excellent! Definitely worth the 10 min trip from Cairns CBD. Gnocchi, carbonara also personal favourites.

This was about our 5th visit to Hopscotch Earlville and on this occasion they have changed their menu. It was like very bad pub food. My friend and I had the reef fish and chips and we could hardly cut the fish with a steak...knife and very tasteless. We are locals and we will not be going back. Sorry. There are so many other restaurants and cafes in Cairns that offer a much better choice.More
