There are also loads of great restaurant walking distance from the Doubletree by Hilton in Cairns. Check out these restaurants which are sorted by top recommendation, rather than distance:

Dundees At The Aquarium

My top recommendation and also one of the closes restaurants, diagonally across the road from the DoubleTree, so just 1 minutes walk from the hotel. Dundees At The Aquarium is a Fine Dining restaurant serving a selection of Australian cuisine. Prices are not cheap here so probably a good restaurant for a special occasion, or any occasion you want some delicious food.
