A nice casual place to have a quick bite, lots of choices and they cater for every taste bud. Nice outlook of the Esplanade.

Burgers were quite average. Veggie burger was dry and bland. Sweet Potato fries were burnt, and extremely disappointing especially considering how expensive they were. Cairns has much better restaurants for comparable prices, I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere.

I loved my burger at Grill'd and the chips were so tasty!! The service was good and they checked that we were enjoying our meals multiple times!! I love the idea of supporting local charities so that was a really fun aspect of eating at Grill'd!! An awesome place for a bite or some nibbles with friends!

It must hurt for her to smile. The girls behind the inside counter (had red headbands on) were bubbly and friendly. Definitely will go back for the food BUT may... More

First, excellent staff. Secondly, we were served quickly. And third, the burgers were delicious! And I loved the chips with herbs. The price isn't very high for the Esplanade.
