Once again C'est Bon didn't disappoint. The food and service were excellent despite the couple of large groups dining. Will remain our dining treat on visits to Cairns.

This is a restaurant which has it down pat: top food, excellently attentive staff, impeccable timing of meal service and arguably THE best French food in the Pacific region. Bastille Day, it's a must. The set menu of crab and zucchini roulade; scallop, squid, prawn,...More

First visit after living in Cairns for 30 years. How silly am I. Beautiful lunch - great value. Was a full house and no wonder. Highly recommend and can't wait to visit again. Was hesitant, being coeliac, but not a problem at all.

Nothing better than sitting outside on a sunny tropical day to lunch at this consistently good authentic French restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. The mushroom soup delicate with an intense flavour. The Bouchée à la Reine or Scallop & Mussel Vol-au-Vent...More

Traditional French Restaurant in Far North Queensland. Established in 2003, C'est Bon is Cairns Local's Favorite Spot for Business lunch, Birthday party, Romantic dinner and many more.

Nicolas the Chef/owner and his Team will welcome you with a bonjour and will take you to a France for the time of your meal.

Our Fantastic Head Waiter Kevin will make sure your evening is faultless

The A la carte menu displays a sample of France's traditional dish for you to enjoy with why not, a bottle of wine from France, Australia or New Zealand...if you are not sure what to choose, Lina, our only Aussie of the team will be happy to help you Choose what matches best your dish and your taste.

the weekly changing 3 course set menu has to be the best value in town with complimentary and unlimited bread and butter with any meal, but dont eat too much of it as, Chris, our Pastry Chef, will blow you away with his creations, simply executed, well presented and most importantly to die for.

if your favorite French dish isn't on the menu, give us a call to organise it.
whether you are a foodie, a connoisseur or a first time with us....talk to us to make sure your evening goes the way you expected it.

Bon Appetit
