Very good French style restaurant with excellent and well informed staff. Recommended
The restaurant had a great atmosphere and a very welcoming staff. Great selection of seasonal foods and exceptional wine list. Unfortunately we were let down by one of the desserts (the souffle of the day seemed slightly undercooked).
Cest Bon has always proud itself by excellent and efficient service especially when Nickolas is around.The lunch specials had a variety of choices and the food was very tasty
Food, service and atmosphere superb. Vegan food was beautiful and the GF range was plentiful. We highly recommend C’est Bon. Irf you want a quiet spot ask for the Cellar. You are still in the restaurant but it's quieter.
Every time I visit Cairns I make sure I book a table for the Friday lunch special. The options and choices are very good. Fantastic value, excellent food and great ambiance.
Great service and food friendly staff. We went for our wedding anniversary we will be back.??
Really enjoyed the meal and service
Great atmosphere and service, but we may have have chosen the food not best suited to us.
Lovely ambience, attentive staff and very good range in the menu selection.
Incredibly tasty and well presented. Our favourite special place, never disappoints
We celebrated a friend’s Birthday and the service plus standard of our breakfast was the Best ! We have dinned there before over the years and never had a ‘ bad ‘ experience !! Sabina Hart
It’s ok, probably won’t go back again.
Only thing I would change is the size of the table. A little on the small side for 2 people. Other than that it’s a lovely restaurant with fantastic food. Highly recommend
French onion soup is my favourite i requested it in my reservation 2 weeks before dining but it did not happen hopefully next time
We had a terrific value breakfast and prior to that a set menu dinner with friends. It’s great value for top quality food with great friendly service.
Beautiful food and friendly service
The Service was perfect. The wagyu beef ( entree) a bit overcooked. In total the quality of the 3course menu was very good.
C'est Bon has been consistently among the top restaurants in Cairns for more than a decade. While perfect for any special occasions we found it surprisingly affordable for gourmet french cuisine.
C'est Bon is one of Cairns best restaurants
Always a great experience and lovely food

As Cairns’ only truly French restaurant, we consider your visit an indulgent journey of the senses. We pride ourselves on being delightfully, authentically, classically French, yet always affordable and fitting in with smart casual tropical dining.
It’s the perfect marriage of French sophistication and down-to-earth local charm. With all the trappings of our training in traditional French cuisine, we also acknowledge the splendor and abundance of fresh local produce, blending the two to bring you a true taste of France – North Queensland style.
Likewise, we offer the best of Australasian wine choices.
Of course, there are some things that can only be procured in France, which we import, but our aim is to source the finest local produce, wherever possible.
Established in 2003, C’est Bon’s French chefs’ culinary talents come to the fore each week with great specials, while staying true to our valued customers’ wishes.
It culminates in a clever blend of authenticity with modern touches. A restaurant for every event, from big celebrations to a romantic tete-a-tete, Nicolas and his team have a flair for making your visit special.
We are located at the entrance to Village Lane in Lake Street, near Pullman Cairns International Hotel, Pullman Reef Hotel Casino and Cairns Convention Centre.
