Delicious!

We had dinner here in between kayaking and a jungle night walk- it looked kind of unassuming and we thought we'd be getting a normal kind of pub meal, but it was really good! Beautiful presentation and scrumptious food. I had the chicken curry and boy had the fish and polenta. Both were amazing... read more

After reading the reviews I expected something really good and must say I was a bit disappointed. Yes, the location is nice and staff was friendly too, however our 3 meals came to us cold (not warm-cold but simply cold) and the food itself was ok but nothing amazing.

Whet came highly recommended. The food wasn't bad, but every dish came laden with a pile of catering quality french fries! The restaurant itself is quite nice, but there's no view other than of trees. A bit ho-hum, I'm afraid. Great iced coffee and iced choc, however!

Food is good and service is great. Whet will be great for romantic dinners. If the menu is more extensive, I would have visited a second time. Reservations are recommended for dinnes as the restaurant gets busy.

Being on the road, we don't get out that much to nice restaurants anymore, so when we stopped here for a morning tea of very good coffee and an awesome lime and coconut cake, and drank in the lovely rainforest setting on the deck; we realised we were way overdue for a date night dinner. we came here the next...

Stopped in for lunch with 6 others. The food was nice but nothing spectacular and we all found the menu to be a bit limited, so much so that we almost went elsewhere as nothing really appealed. Maybe their evening menu was more extensive??

We were looking for a 'not too heavy' lunch and found this place. The selections were plenty and the hot chips were great. I also had the homemade soup which was very tasty and my wife had the 'barra' which was plentiful and worth the trip.

Cape Tribulation is a must place to visit, pristine beauty is what comes to mind, but once there it comes as a surprise that a great little restaurant exists there where the service is excellent, the Manager Kirsty extremely helpful and friendly and the food wonderful. Congratulations Kirsty you make the place wonderful. Malcolm Prince
