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.

Me and a large group of friends just turned up to this fantastic little restaurant with no prior warning. The staff were so welcoming and accommodating, effortlessly offering to move the entire restaurant set up around to allow us to all sit together as a...big group. Their service was absolutely spectacular and the food was even more impressive! The authenticity of the decor and the food was extremely impressive and the food tasted Devine! The best Greek I have eaten outside of Greece!More

The food is generally good, but let down by terrible service. This is the second time we've been to Fetta's this year and both times the service was extremely lacking. Recommend not going on a busy night as they simply cannot keep up. The place...seems to run on a constant stream of backpackers who have little care for their customers. Our order was forgotten both times and we were generally ignored.More

Worst meal I’ve had in a long time- terrible slow service. Party of 13, informed when we got there we would have to order the set banquet. Ended up paying more than $300 for a very little amount of food that we couldn’t even choose....The gluten free option was a plate of sliced raw carrot. Left after 3 hours- not bothered to wait for dessert. Worst Greek restaurant I’ve ever been to here or in Europe. Do not recommendMore

Fetta's Greek Taverna is a hidden gem in Cairns! Claudio and Fatjona, the dynamic duo, provided exceptional service!! Full of smiles and work very hard. The food is a burst of delicious flavors, and the festive atmosphere with plate smashing and a mesmerizing belly dancer...made our night unforgettable. The staff, including the attentive manager, showcased genuine care. This is not just a restaurant; it's an experience. Highly recommend for a delightful evening with fantastic vibes!More

This is a very busy restaurant and could be a lot of fun if you're looking to do more than just eat. They do the plate breaking and the Greek dance during dinner service and guests are welcome to run up and participate so many...did. The main courses were a little pricey and we weren't too hungry so we ordered a nice lamb gyros and a falafel wrap that were well seasoned. The plates advertised on the street are for street dining or take away only so we enjoyed them just outside the restaurant at a table and the servers even provided us with some table water. Good restaurant and if we were hungry we would definitely have a bigger meal here. They offer a good kids menu as well so it could be good for a family outing in Cairns.More

Busy place and good looking food but a bit odd when it comes to service. It’s very noisy so some staff basically yell directions in a way that seems a bit hostile. They have a full menu but I was told the only take away...available was yiros. It could just be my expectation of a yiros/kebab/souvlaki but I’ve had better.More

Both ordered the set menu. It became clear they had missed 2 serving 2 of the dishes. Asked once about it and the waitresses pretended she would get the dishes. Much later asked a 2nd time scout it. Was told the kitchen had shut. Then...they proceeded to seat guests with full menu. Mentioned that to the waitress who apologized and said that what she was told. Given no discount. Local who won’t ever go back.More

They had a friendly and very attentive staff. Food was delicious and came to the table quite fast even though the restaurant was full. The restaurant itself gives off a vibe with the interior and the good music. The prices were reasonable and fair.

Very deserving of the taverna label, with a cosy atmosphere near the Cairns waterfront. The staff are helpful, and the food is delicious and reasonably priced for the amount you get. I can absolutely recommend the falafel and the lemon potatoes. It also has a...dedicated takeaway section for your more rapid souvlaki needs.More

I’ve never had such a terrible experience at a restaurant, the owner George has no consideration for customers, the service was terrible. The plate smashing was inappropriate, considering normal household plates were used instead of the proper clay plates. We witnessed him injuring customers and...refused to treat them or help or stop and continued smashing plates in front of them despite one of them bleeding. Truly feel sorry for the staff working for this person, do not go here if you want an authentic Greek experience.More

Food and company to really appreciate! Music, surroundings, great tasting, real Greek food. The Belly Dancing is well received and raucous, with plate smashing and different guests being encouraged/welcomed to the dance floor, with the dancer. The owner George is a lightning rod as host...and good conversationalist.More
