“Quick informal dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Order at the counter, they bring it to the table. Good selection of dishes but more of a cafeteria feel to it.

“Less than average food and service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

Wouldnt bother going there again.Took 10 mins to be served , I person serving ,doing drinks and desserts and everything else while 3 chefs/assistants watch on . Slowest service but the poor overworked girl was lovely and very friendly .and quick warm meals. Food is pretty average so for a few dollars more there are plenty of better value and better food places along the esplanade.

“Casual cafe/restaurant in the Reef Casino- ideal for a quick snack or coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Prior to writing this review, I read the recent reviews, some of which were quite critical.

I had several light meals and snacks here, and each was satisfactory.

This is a low priced cafe/restaurant in the Reef Casino- accessible from the casino's gaming area.

They offer sandwiches, cakes and light meals.

The food is basic, but tasty.

The prices are low.

Service from the staff was friendly- you order at the counter and they give you a pager to collect your food and beverages when they are ready.

For what it is, it's unpretentious and reasonably priced.

The ambience is basic- it's a cafeteria.

“Food well priced and average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Flinders is a restaurant in the casino but is attached to the Pullman Reef Hotel. The breakfasts are fabulous and worth the $13 but the other meals were average but still really well priced.

“Poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

I recently went to Flinders after a long break- I remember that this used to be good value for money. Unfortunately. that is no longer the case! I ordered Beef Lasagne and salad for $14 (lunch). The food was served quickly but I was very disappointed by the size of the meal- I had a mini slice of lasagne approx 12cm long by 7cm wide by 5cm high and a teeny tiny salad. The salad consisted of 1 halved cherry tomato, a couple of pieces of shredded iceberg lettuce and 1 slice of cucumber! The lasagne did taste ok though. I spoke to the manager who proceeded to tell me that this was the best value place to eat of its type in Cairns and that the lasagne was handmade (I expected that it wouldve been!!). We ended up leaving mid afternnoon and bought Macdonalds on the way home because we were so hungry!!! Rio off!!!!
