Visited twice, lunch on June 16 and dinner June 17. Each time I ordered a different lamb burger while my wife ordered the Summer Sunset beef burger. No fries or drink, just burgers; didn't ask for anything special on them, just according to the menu....More

Always find ourselves coming back here when we can't decide what to eat. Succulent, fresh, delicious burgers and the original chips are to die for! Sweet chilli mayo is our go to sauce! Love this place!!!

We ate at this restaurant and were very happy with the rang elf buglers on the menu and the quality delivered. Service was quick without fuss. Staff were happy and ensure we were well looked after.

I've never had a bad experience at Grill'd and the Cairns restaurant is no different. This time I tried the low-carb superbun with sweet potato fries and was pleasantly surprised.
