I order the cheese starter (with gluten free bread) and the beef shoulder. They no problem accommodating my gluten allergy. The wines are very reasonably priced. I thought that the potato gratin was very bland, but the beef was generously seasoned, so it kind of...More

This restaurant is as good as you would find anywhere in Sydney or Melbourne and the ambience and layout is equally suited to an intimate dinner or a group of friends. We were guided to our seats on the beautiful verandah and watched the summer...More

A sumptuous lunch on a beautiful day in sunny Cairns! The $45 lunch gives you three generous courses plus complimentary glass of wine. We would highly recommend C'est Bon for a classy lunch.

The exceptional service (the best I have encountered in Cairns by some measure) delivered by unassuming, knowledgable and attentive staff is complimented by exquisite food, prepared by chefs who understand a palate and the notion of seasoning. I couldn't find fault with either and feel...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
