Sensational French food cooked beautifully. The downfall this restaurant has is the slow service by staff and the kitchen. We waited 45 minutes for our entrees and another 45 minutes for our main. You do feel second class if you are not known by the...More

We tried this restaurant for the first time and will definitely be back when in Cairns again. Very authentic French cuisine- not the cheapest restaurant around but definitely worth it. The food came out a bit slowly but it was a busy Saturday night. Taste...More

As a local I have tried a few of the restaurants Cairns has to offer and C’est Bon is the best by a mile. The food is to die for and the service is great. It is a fine dining restaurant that never disappoints.

Traditional French restaurant in far North Queensland. Established in 2003, C'est Bon is Cairns locals' 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 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 don't 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 timer with us....talk to us to make sure your evening goes the way you expected it.

Bon Appetit
