highly recommendable

By far the best food I have eaten in Cape Tribulation. I've been in Cape Tribulation 4 weeks now and today I had the best food and the best cup of coffee in town. Service was excellent as well.

A great restaurant a stones throw from Cape Trib Camping grounds and the food was awesome. Had some cocktails and dinner one night and went back for another great lunch the next day!!! They had free wifi and the most unique bar I've seen in awhile. Highly recommended!!!!!

Whet Restaurant is located in a cozy over sized cabin like structure. Wild birds of various sizes and a few four legged animals roam the property making the walk from your car to your table quite an experience. Walk through the restaurant's doors to find an inviting, fully stocked bar with both bar stools and corner table couches. We came... More

After a terrible lunch at the Thronton Beach Kiosk (which we returned) we drove up to Whet Cafe & Bar. We took a table outside and ordered some sandwich and cake. Both was very good, far better than what we were offered before.

We were made very welcome and enjoyed meeting the staff. The food was amazingly good considering how well hidden Cape Trib is. Would happily recommend one or more visits.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions on past visits to the Daintree and once again, it did not disappoint. This is a family owned and operated business, staff were all super friendly and the setting unmatched. Nothing beats eating dinner by candlelight in the rainforest! The food was beautiful, well presented, fresh and delicious! If you only... More

We stumbled onto the place by accident and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is great and the food amazing. Then we got our bill and were shocked at how reasonable the prices were. I would not hesitate to go here again.

Lovely restaurant - love how you sit outside and are high up. Staff very friendly and prices for a nice meal are reasonable considering its hom-emade food. Does have Wifi but a bit temperamental at times.
