Had really good food when visiting Grill'd. Service was good and very fast. The menu had a good range of buglers. Value isnt too bad. The burger and chips were top quality. Worth a trip

Grill'd is a great place to eat if you want to watch the crowds roaming The Esplanade. The food is great, and they give back to the community.

This is a simple walk in restaurant, not a full service one. But sometimes you want a burger and a beer, and both are available here. I had the lamb burger and it was perfect.

I just love this place - great food, very quirky and different and absolutely something for everyone. Everyone loves a burger but they do it with so many twists that it is an amazing experience. The new 'avo fries' are to die for and the 'no carb' bun was amazing. Don't pass this place by for a great burger experience.... More

Just ordered a hot bird ( i think) chicken burger, and it was sour rather than hot. Though this is a great place, i have visited one in sydney and tried their chips with sweet mayo dip on the go and they were yum. This place looks popular and always full with people.

Great ambience and staff were extremely attentive and... More

Chose here because they had vegan options for my fiancée. Delicious burgers at good prices. The chips are definitely worth the extra.

After snorkeling all day on the reef, we were famished. We walked by & although we had really wanted something else -the smell drew us in. Had "The Mighty" with the low-carb bun - SIMPLY AMAZING.. Seriously,

Was just wandering around cairns looking for a place to eat and have a beer, came across this place and I had the best burger I've ever had. They use very fresh ingredients and I'd definitely recommend the panini bun!

Thank mattday681
