The lunch menu is great food and well priced. Food and service never disappoint. Well worth a visit and just sit by the water and watch the passing parade stroll by. Beer is always cold and deserts are interesting.

Love their garlic prawn rice! We stayed in Cairns for 3 days and went to this restaurants twice! You must also try their Salad and Oysters. Book if you want to sit near to the sea front!

We ordered oyster, salad and ribs! Oyster and salad was very fresh, ribs was average! But over all very good value for money! But dinner time was a bit under staff which causes long waiting time for our food!

4 of us were visiting Cairns from the USA to enjoy the Great Barrier Reef. We chose Dundee's because they had kangaroo and crocodile on the menu as an appetizer and we all wanted to try it, especially for the bragging rights. Each of us also ordered something different as our main course and everything was delicious. The 4 of... More

A lovely setting right on the waterfront with a friendly staff and a great atmosphere. The food was very tasty and seafood was fresh. The choice of oysters was varied and after trying two types of oyster sauces it left a high expectation for our main meal. The bucket of Prawns and Bugs is highly recommended. Suggestion ,pre book if... More

We had stuffed mango chicken served with vegetables; it was cooked to perfection. This restaurant does get very busy so you probably need to book in advance. Food was served fairly quickly and the service was excellent.

We were told by someone that Dundee's served one of the best food in town. Indeed they do!!! We have the Chef's choice on the seafood platter and it was delicious. For the 1st time we had the Kangaroo satay and the Crocodile satay. You should visit this place but please make a booking in advance.

Dundee's is situated on the waterfront and one can either eat inside or out. However on the day we ate there, there was quite a wind blowing so we ate inside. The service was great, efficient and friendly, and the meal was just as good, my husband and I both had fillet steak which was first class. The sweet menu... More
