This was a great lunch. We were served promptly and with a professional manner. Wine was chilled perfectly. Every plate was cleaned to empty. The staff member who served us was awesome and more high end service then I was expecting. I will totally go back, loved it.

I have eaten here more times than is sensible over the last 5+ years. Almost always, I have had Perrotta's scrambled eggs. Everyone has their preference when it comes to scrambled eggs - runny, soft, firm...This place, in my opinion, does them perfectly. Absolutely perfectly. I'm sure they aren't healthy, but, a little indulgence is a good thing. Staff are... More

It's a nice setting but the food is pretentious and does not live up to those pretensions. However, the service was excellent and the wait staff knowledgeable.

After walking past several restaurants to have breakfast this one caught our eye with their interesting menu. The food was tasty, quick and service great as well. Very cutely decorated and also had fans in the outdoor area which was nice on a hot morning.

I went here with my partner on Australia day. I immediately wanted to leave after the waiter told off (that's not an exaggeration) my partner. My partner went and tried to look at a menu from the stack and the German waiter snatched it back and said "don't touch my menus!" As my partner is a very patient person we... More

I've been a regular at Perrottas for years. It is consistently excellent. From the tantalising menu choices, through to the fantastic atmosphere, prompt service and lovely staff - it is a standout. A long term favourite of Cairns locals for very good reason.

We had dinner twice here during our holiday in Cairns. Staff were lovely and service was prompt. The food was cooked to perfection and there were lots of gluten free options available on the menu. Definitely worth a visit.

Started with the Verde fresh juice.....apple, spinach, parsley and a fourth ingredient I forget. The Americana sandwich with egg, bacon, home made meat patty, avocado and pickled chilli hit the spot and the latte chaser was perfect.....so good in fact I got another one to go.

Stopped by for a cold drink on a boiling Sunday having visited the Cairns Art Gallery next door (small but exquisite - do visit - only $5). Lovely corner street terrace, cooling breeze. Very prompt, friendly service. Had cold beer and fresh squeezed juice combo, both excellent. Then decided to share a plate of crispy fried octopus. Came with watermelon,... More

It shouldn't be too hard to do eggs, bacon and avocado when you are open for breakfast, and paying additional $5 for bacon and avocado sides each raised my expectations. CRASH, two small pieces of overcooked greasy bacon and smashed avo that had more sour vinegar than quality Avocado in it. The meal portion was small in proportion to the... More
