Amazing food in the rainforest

We loved the food, the salad was fresh (loved the combination of flavors), fish and chips were simply amazing. The restaurant is surrounded by lush rainforest.

Brilliant venue lunch or dinner. Food is of a extremely high quality, rivaling most of Port Douglas. Well worth the visit. Tip: Save space for desert!

I had the fish and chips (barramundi) which was great. My partner had the dips and bread. The hummus was amazing and just how we liked it. One of the better places we ate at in Cape tribulation!

Not sure if we'll have the chance to sample lunch or dinner at this establishment, but we'd certainly be happy to try.

This restaurant is worth including in your itinerary offering quality food in a very pleasant setting out on the covered verandah. We followed it with coffee inside lounging on the sofas before heading off for our afternoon. Thank you!

Delicious chips and tiger prawns and awesome service. Love that it's off the main road and you still feel like you're in the rainforest. Thanks for a yummy lunch!
