I've been going since it opened years ago and the quality hasn't dropped at all. There seafood pizzas are delicious. In fact, all their pizzas are high on the yum factor! It's a small operation but big on customer service and friendliness.

Family trip to Cairns and after a long day out on the reef we decided to drop in for Pizza. I am a cealiac so Gluten Free is essential. It was comforting to have fantastic service from the staff and owner and a conversation about what he does to get the GF bases, how he avoids cross contamination and a... More

Check the opening times before ordering as they open at 5 pm. We had heard about the smoked ribs so ordered these as a take away meal. The meat literally fell off the bone. There was plenty of meat and the taste was unforgetable. You can eat in as there are stools and benches, but we took our back and... More

My wife and I stayed in Cairns for a few nights and found Houdini's Gourmet Pizza just off the strip. It is WORTH the drive and effort to get to - we tried the lamb (regular crust) and the garlic prawn (gluten free) and thoroughly enjoyed them. There are about 47 possible pizza configurations but who is counting! We loved... More

We decided on takeaway pizza from here after seeing all the 5star reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately the pizza didn't match our expectations. Too much topping trying to make up for lack of flavour.

Walked here for some takeout pizza last night. Tried the thin crust boccoccini & prosciutto and basil & tomato in the 12" size. Pretty tasty!! Good, quality ingredients, crispy crust, nice topping to cheese/sauce/crust ratio. They have a huge menu as well. Lots if different options for pizza and some are very creative! They were also super quick and friendly!
