Consistent and authentic French dining as I’ve remembered it from my time in France. Always find myself coming back for more with my girlfriends for lunch and the occasional dinner. The staff are friendly and efficient. We have always shared a great dining experience.

My partner and I made a reservation to celebrate our recent engagement. Even with 2 Christmas parties happening at the time, we felt very well looked after by the staff on the floor. The food was exceptional! We will definitely be coming back.

As locals we have always wanted to dine here due to the restaurant's good reputation. We both enjoy French cuisine but felt the restaurant overpriced their food. The service was excellent and we had a lovely balcony table. The choice on the menu was satisfactory...More

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
