From the moment of arrival, the staff made us feel at home and were very friendly. The falls villa and sound of the falls through the trees was heaven. The grounds were spotless, and are magical at night with the lights through the trees near the restaraunt. The food at the restaraunt was very fresh, and cooked perfectly, would definitely... More

Go to Spicers Tamarind Maleny if you wish to be pampered, receive exceptional service, and have an incredible dining experience. The 5 course degustation menu along with breakfast the next morning was a highlight, as was our 10 hour sleep in a plush bed, and beautiful pregnancy massage the next day. My husband enjoyed the outdoor cedar hot tub, and... More

A fantastic getaway from it all, loved the privacy and location amongst the hills of Maleny. The Restaurant thoroughly deserves its Two Hats. Quality service all round as well. It is well worth every penny.

The facilities, food, wine list and staff of all categories were exceptional. I would recommend Tamarind unreservedly.My wife and I went to Tamarind for a two day getaway and were thorouhhly impressed. I am not a great fan of Asian style food but this experience has got me on the turn.

Enjoyed a meal here with a group that included some special needs in terms of diet and they were accommodating. Pleasant surrounds, pleasant live music although as is nearly always the case the amplification could have been a little less. The music should be a background, not a focus.
