Great atmosphere, especially on a cool night with no rain if seated outdoors. Food is very good. Great value. Service is quick. Got meals super quick

Mondos has been one of our faves for the last 20+ years. The food is still great but the service was a little lax and they seemed very disorganised which is unusual. When I arrived the CSO was very irritated about something and wasn’t hiding his feelings at all which made me a little uncomfortable. Not very professional. Overall the location is great and the food is consistently good.

We stood around for at least 10 minutes waiting to be seated. I had booked a table online. The staff seemed to be unorganised running around in circles. No one greeted us. Finally we got someone's attention and where directed to a table saying they would bring out menus. They didn't arrive or bottles of water so we had to go get our own!!!!!..... Someone needs to be in charge overseeing the staff. Such a shame. The venue I consider the best spot in Cairns.

It is the best site in town. We lined for more than 15 minutes to get drinks. Some of the food was overpriced for what it was. The were very understaffed.

The food was excellent last night. Each time we go during school holidays, we need to remind the staff that kids eat free - according to the website. It appears that some staff are not aware of this and you can be easily charged unnecessarily. Otherwise, we felt it was excellent!

Had the lunch special, the salmon wings were not too tasty but enjoyed the main meal. They didn't have Diet Coke or Pepsi, just regular which was a slight bummer! Beautiful views!

Came for the lunch which is excellent value. The salmon wings are deep friend, the main is amazing and the drink...they were out of diet coke. so just had the water. the main was good though. they forgot to send the salon to me before so had it as dessert.
