Where the underground and elite meet!

The Green Ant Cantina is Cairns’ best kept secret and has become an institution among its regulars  since opening in 2001.

We are unique in that we are a bar, a restaurant, a music venue and can cater for functions and parties.

Our food takes inspiration from South American, Caribbean and Baja Californian cuisines which showcase the amazing fresh produce available to us here in Cairns. Margaritas, Mojitos and Sangrias will quench your thirst along with a beautiful little wine list with some remarkable wines.

We began Green Ant Brewing Co. in 2012 with our ethos to brew small batch craft beers that are additive and preservative free. Our ever growing range boasts a Pilsener,  a Pale Ale, a Premium Lager, a Ginger Beer, a Honey Wheat Beer, a Strong Brown Ale and an Imperial Stout.


NEWS: New menu coming soon! We have some new dishes for you to try as well as a new wine list focusing on organic and sustainable wines AND some deadly new cocktails. Winter is going to be good.
