Description: 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

I go to plenty of restaurants and live 60 Kms north in Port Douglas.

Over the last few years I’ve been coming here. And I’ve never had bad food. Really.

Huge respect to Nicolas and his team.

Try the tartare and the duck and ink gin.

I recently attended for dinner on a Saturday night when the restaurant was full. The setting is perfect for the tropics and the tables are not too crowded together. Everything was calm and the service was both warm and efficient. The menu was varied and it was difficult to choose. The food was attractively served and perfectly cooked. My companions were equally satisfied...lucky them...they are locals so can enjoy more frequent visits.

As a local I gave this restaurant a second chance after a disappointing first time experience. Sooooo glad I did. The service was exceptional and personal on every level. The staff went out of their way to make sure our dining experience was memorable.
The food was magnificent from entree to dessert. We will definitely be back. Thanks to you and your team for actually caring about the feedback provided.

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 staff.

Big thank you to the staff at C’est Bon. Our first visit here , after 25 years living in Cairns. They were very attentive, without being intrusive or hovering. The wine was matched perfectly with our meal . Now the meal . I started with Le Tartare , and my wife had Le Camembert, a perfect starter . Mains were Le Canard ( duck) and poitrine de porc ( pork). If I thought the starters were fantastic, this went up another level. Superb. And the jewels in the crown , Le Soufflé . First time for this dish for us both , and what a wonderful way to finish a great night out. In at 7pm and finished just before 9 , no rush , thanks x1000 . We will be back , and you should try !
