“Fantastic Atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Having moved to Cairns from England, we were looking for a place that had a good atmosphere but didn't feel like a backpacker's bar. The Rattle n Hum is just that! It is such a good bar and restaurant, the portions are huge, so don't plan for a light meal. I would really recommend the Sea food rattler or the rattler pizza. Also if you have dinner before 7pm, you get 20% off your meal, so super cheap!
The bar side of the place is also great, with huge tv screens to watch the sport. I really loved this place, it was certainly a regular spot for us!

“"Great Pub Food & Service as Allways"”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

When in Cairns there are so many restaurants to choose from but for value and to enjoy a few drinks in a great atmosphere Rattle N Hum cannot be beaten, makes you feel like your on holidays!!!

A special mention to the great service from Bianca and Paris behind the bar who poured a taste of wine when asked what it was like, who does that? Good to see some Good Old Fashioned Service still around!

See you next visit!

“Good food, bust spot”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Food was great. Have to order and pick up food at the bar but that's ok. Very busy but otherwise enjoyable. Big portions.

“Excellent Adventure”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stayed in Cairns 6 nights and ate dinner there 5 nights. The meals were excellent, the service and atmosphere was fantastic. The waitresses do an outstanding job. Tables are serviced promptly for new guests.

“Nice spot to people watch”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I dined here the three nights we were in Cairns. We had long, busy days sightseeing and didn't feel the need to look around for other places. The place was always busy but yet we were always lucky enough to find a spot outside so we could enjoy the water views and people watch.

Order before 7:00PM and get 20% off main meals and pitchers of beer for $10. I recommend the fish n chips or the pepperoni pizza. The nachos were ok, but not quite what I expected.

If you want to be served and have refills by a waitress,skip this place as it's all self serve. Order at the bar and fetch your food when the pager goes off.

We enjoyed our dinners at Rattle N Hum!
