Waterfront dining is one of the best ways to enjoy the twinkling lights of Cairns at night. As evening draws in, you can tuck into fresh food under the stars, and soak up the peaceful atmosphere that the water brings with it.
Dundee’s Waterfront Restaurant is a favourite among locals and visitors alike. Set along the waterfront in Cairns Harbour, it boasts a menu filled with local specialties and those from further afield. Expect delicious dishes like Australian beef steaks served straight from the grill, freshly caught seafood that hasn’t even been out of the water for a day, succulent pastas with tasty sauces, and a whole range of Australian specialty foods.
Situated underneath the Cairns Harbour Lights Hotel, Dundees Waterfront Restaurant oozes a laidback atmosphere and a stylish vibe, with ambient lighting and modern décor. When you’re sitting out on the deck, you can admire the Reef boats as they to-and-fro backwards and forwards from the Great Barrier Reef, and gaze out to sea as the sun begins to set.
