A complete guide to Cairns Restaurants

Green Ant Cantina

A casual and funky restaurant with pub style Mexican food but done with flair. You can expect large tasty meals at affordable prices. Cool tunes and cosy rythums play most days at Green Ant. Popular with backpackers and a younger boho crowd, a lot of the dining space is outdoors in a 'beer garden' type environment. On Tuesdays take a friend and get two meals for the price of one.

The Green Ant is great backbackers place for a meal and chat with friends all over the world and good meals but the prices are dear.

ive drank in all the pubs and eaten in all the restaurants in cairns. and none of them live up to the green ant. great food, especially that kangaroo burger. great selection of beer, and most importantly great atmosphere. good looking owner too. i would recommend to anyone visiting cairns to drop by the green ant, down by the train station. best establishment in cairns

The Green Ant is the anti-cheese for backpackers. Not a wet t-shirt comp in sight. It's not just the woolshed that does cheap meals, on mondays travellers get 2 for 1 meals, that's 2 steaks for $25! Yum! And every day there's a $5 meal deal, just get your vouchers from the local hostels, and trust me it's not just mass produced slop, it's bloody great. Love the music, the place, and, of course, the food!!

The Green Ant has the best chicken burgers and chips in australia which is one of my favs and the chicken caseda with the chili and sour cream, yummy. Great food, good prices. Laidbackatmosphere , its like being at woodstock on a smaller scale. If you are there on a sunday night,just maybe, you will get to hear the most awesome singers in australia. Joely,Big Steve, Hippy Bob, Gavin, Jason,Medina and of course Benny.
