5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014 NEW

This had great reviews on tripadvisor and was just a few minutes from where we were staying. It certainly didn't disappoint. A wonderful setting on a raised veranda in the rainforest lit by torches (no mains electricity this side of the Daintree River) making it feel very atmospheric. Obviously a generator somewhere quietly humming away but not heard above the... More

After we 'eventually' arrived..(thanks to the lovely woman who was picking up people for a night tour, and found us walking the wrong direction) The service, food and environment could not have been any better. Great prices and menu.... fabulous and appreciated.

This is the best cafe in the Daintree in my opinion. Consistently good quality food and cafe and a nice wine list. The tuna nicoise is a big favourite and the coffee is great. Recommended

This is your best bet past Daintree River, by far. The prices are slightly on higher side, but when you factor in the remote location with no mains power supply, it evens it out. The food is great, and they have a different vegetarian menu as well (I was sold on this). They have different lunch and dinner menu too.... More

My wife and I had dinner seated on the balcony. The setting, with flickering lights was just great. The meal was charmingly served and of outstanding quality. In such a remote location it would have been easy to take advantage of visitors, but they don't, they work hard to provide a good service and a great meal.

I have eaten here a number of times and the food and service never disappoint. The twice cooked pork belly and scallop entrée was really delicious. The waitress very kindly (and wisely) suggested an extra 'spoon' as my partner and I were sharing - which was lucky as we would have fought over the remaining serve had she not suggested... More

My friend and I went here while on holiday in Cape Tribulation and found it to be quite nice. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff extremely professional and friendly. The only issue I had with my meal was my entree of crab remoulade in which there seemed to be no crab whatsoever. Besides that my salmon was cooked to... More

Having paid a lot of money at remote restaurants for both poor food and less than cheery service in the past, it was a revelation to go to Whet where the exact opposite was true. Kirsty the manager not only served the tables, she did so with a professionalism and charm that all too often can be the exception in... More

My wife, 7-yr-old daughter, and I stopped here for lunch one afternoon during a 2.5-day visit to the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. The barramundi and chips was quite possibly the best fish and chips I've ever had! The scenery is amazing. One of our guidebooks described Whet as "over hyped", and my wife was leaning toward another restaurant. We ignored... More

My partner & I visited whet for lunch today. We both had the lamb pita to eat & it was delicious and well priced. The staff were very friendly & the service was prompt. I would definitely recommend a visit to whet when visiting cape tribulation.
