Our experience at Paperbark was great. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and chatty. They explained the menu well and we ordered a large variety of plates to share. The menu is share based with a handful of “main meal” options, but most plates are small. The setting is beautiful for a dinner, facilities clean and it’s really enjoyable to walk out to the beach after dinner.
Highly recommend for dinner with people who enjoy sharing food.

Had a very nice dinner there 2 months ago with the last menu, lovely, the new menu was a very nice change, highly recommended and the staff can’t do enough for you. Please try this place, you won’t be disappointed.

I can't recommend this place any more.
I had dinner there more than 3 months ago and loved it.
This time, the service was still amazing but we were even lucky enough to have a wallaby coming and say hello.
Just wow!

Beautiful setting, excellent service. Food was well prepared and presented. A few more vegetarian mains on the menu would be wonderful.

From the moment we sat down in front of the open view at the front of the restaurant to the tasmanian oysters and finishing off with one of the best chocolate mousse we've ever had, it was an unforgettable night. JA took amazing care of us and even got the chef to prepare us oysters, despite it not being on the menu for that evening. The ambiance, the cocktails and the wine were all spectacular and the tasting menu could not have been a better combination of local cuisine. Definitely a must if you're ever in Cairns.

First rate tasting menu featuring local produce presented beautifully. Some reasonably priced wine offerings. Great gluten free options. Excellent setting amongst the huge paper bark gums.

What an amazing choice of restaurant to have our first experience with booking through First Table. The setting was very relaxing, our meals were delicious & very well presented. We highly recommend the smoked prawns for entree and the char grilled Angus for main, delicious! The staff were very welcoming & their customer service was amazing. They also have a wide selection of cocktails and wines to choose from! We will definitely be recommending to other friends.

We didn't know what to expect when we booked, but the locations was good so we went for it. We were so thrilled with the dinner, ordered the 6 course degustation menu and it was incredible. The kangaroo tartare was definitely the stand out dish but everything was great. Definitely contemporary Australian with very original flavor combinations. We loved it! Add friendly and professional service and a stunning setting- we'll definitely be going back!

What an amazing experience!
The service was excellent, the waitresses were extremely patient and helpful.
We ordered a main each and a dessert to share.
Excellent presentation and taste.
What surprised me a lot was the paperback smoked bread, what a blast of deep and complex tastes!
My boyfriend instead was highly impressed with the cocktails, specifically with the daiquiri. He loved it.
Last but not least, the setting was just a dream. It felt like being on holiday, just a few minutes' drive away from town.
We loved it!
100% recommended!

I have been to this restaurant many times before.this experiences was quite different. We had the Chefs taster selection and everything that was put in front of us was amazing from presentation,to taste and unique fravors. Well done would highly recommend the Paperbark restaurant for your next dining experience.

Absolutely loved our Wedding Anniversary dinner last night! We live in Kewarra Beach and like to dine local but the food has not been great in the past so we were reluctant to try again! If not for First Table we would not have enjoyed the amazing food and service that we received last night! We have just told our friends this morning who have booked a table for tonight for a birthday celebration dinner! Thank you First Table for allowing us to experience a fantastic local restaurant and to share our Paperbark Restaurant & First Table experience with others! ;-)

The place was amazing, service by Constanza was great, very attentive and lucky she also speaks Spanish as well, so she explained everything much better. The entrees were a bit small, but the mains were very tasty and good portion. I Recommend it specially for romantic occasions, is the perfect place

This is the second time we have dined in this restaurant. It was so good we had to go back. The ambiance of the restaurant is just beautiful see for yourself & the food is 5 star. We are really lucky to have this restaurant/resort on the northern beaches.

When you walk in to the restaurant you feel you are on a holiday.
The staff made us feel welcomed and food was delivered quick and delicious.
First table is by far the best deal for family to dine out in Cairns area.

The service was prompt and very personal. We requested bug spray due to rainy/mossie season for baby and the waitress brought mossie coil as well. We ordered steak(10/10), fish (10/10) and pulled lamb (7/10- not favoursome like the other two dishes). We had chocolate dessert which was very refreshing. Definitely would return again but maybe in cooler season.
