A complete guide to Cairns Restaurants

Far Horizons Restaurant

A very classy restaurant located on absolute beachfront at Palm Cove. This restaurant has won awards for dining excellence. The restaurant sometimes sets up dining on the lawn among the palm trees beside the beach. The service is relaxed and friendly and the crowd is a mix of hotel guests from this and other nearby resorts. On Friday and Saturday nights a guitarist plays in the cocktail bar. A wonderful treat.

We have just returned from a holiday in Palm Cove. The reason for our visit was to find a wedding destination. We found Far Horizons! We enjoyed an evening meal on the deck followed by a delicious breakfast the next day.

The staff were so friendly and attentive, in total we were served by 5 different staff and each were outstanding. From our experience we have booked our Sept 2010 wedding there!

Can't wait to return.

Loved every minute of it! My fiance took me to dinner there for my birthday. The food was excellent, staff were great. Great for a few drinks or a romantic dinner as we had, out by the sand.

One of the worst dining experiences Ive had in Cairns and the Northern Beaches. The wait staff were inexperienced , the menu (lunch) was small with little choice and when the food finally arrived the meals were less than ordinary. It was cafe food , take away service and 5 star restaurant prices.

We recently traveled from the Gold Coast to Palm Cove for our 20th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is totally inspirational. Even a late December evening was perfect under the open sky on the deck. The acoustic duo provided lovely accompaniment to the top class food and service. Highly recommended for that special occasion!

We had our wedding at this restaurant and have had amazing feedback. Being right on the beach there is no place like it in Cairns. Food is delicious, atmosphere is amazing and the staff are great. The soft shelled crab is to die for!

Went there many times over the 6 years I lived in Cairns.

Fantastic food, wonderful setting, but wine too expensive and not adventurous enough for a restaurant of this standing, and it was probably my favourite of all in FNQ apart from Silky Oaks at Mosman.

I went to Far Horizons for lunch 2 years ago with my family who were over from UK. It was so special that my boyfriend and I commented it would make a great wedding reception venue - sure enough we are now engaged and booked in for October this year. The food is excellent, the ambience, music and staff fantastic, I would recommend to anyone.

Our family had a fanastic evening meal on Christmas Day 2004. Our table overlooked the palm trees and beach, with the background noise of waves breaking on the beach. The staff were that wonderful mix of being friendly yet professional. The food was superb and the lady singer, accompanied by the pianist just made the evening 'unforgettable'. It was like a dream come true.

This would have to be one of the best restaurants we have been to anywhere in the world. The food was sensational, the service amazing and the ambience and location second to none. Not cheap, but an experience to remember long after you have forgotten the cost. Absolutely first class in every respect.

Also they have some of the nicest staff you'll ever meet who go out of their way to ensure that you have the best time possible!!

Delightfully romantic, classy and delicious food. Perfect atmosphere for a cosy dinner for two... the crashing waves of Palm Cove are a lovely sound with dinner.
