137 The Esplanade Cairns, Queensland, Australia 4870

Drift on the Esplanade is Cairns newest restaurant offering stylish and contemporary design with views of the Coral Sea, perfectly capturing the laid back, tropical spirit of Far North Queensland. 

Formerly Sea Level Food and Wine, Drift on the Esplanade is the result of an extensive and inspired transformation that takes its cue from a modern day beach theme. 

Sit, relax and watch the world go by along the Esplanade and out on the water while sipping on a wine or ice cold beer from our extensive beverage menu.  The menu provides an extensive choice of tasty snacks, seafood feasts, tantalizing main dishes and delicious desserts while utilising one common thread; fresh, seasonal ingredients bursting with flavour.

Whether you're looking for breakfast with a view, drinks with friends, a romantic dinner or to celebrate a special event, Drift on the Esplanade at Rydges Tradewinds Cairns offers the ideal venue for your next dining experience.
