Tasty food, healthy as well (grilled and not fried patties). For veggie lovers like me there are a few good options which made multiple visits more exciting! Very friendly staff and ambience.

Was a little disappointed after the hype. The burger was ok but not on the same level as real good burger places in big cities. The sweet potato fries were ok too, heard some guys near me were saying the normal fries were no good. Price isn't too bad to be fair.

The burger was excellent and really tasty. The fries were good too, however we could have ordered only one serving and still had enough for two. I would love to... More

We popped along to Grill'd in cairns For those from the UK Grill'd is an australian chain who are a bit like Byron burgers or Gourmet burger kitchen. They offer premium prices for high quality burgers, but with a slightly healthier ethos with a lot of options available to you particularly vegan/vegetarian choices. The custom options as default is what... More
