Highly recommended

Great value for money and delicious food! Definitely worth the visit and it probably the nicest place to eat in the area. Be sure to ask for the prawns basket - FABULOUS!

Great food, reasonable price, good service. Nice to find such a place in this remote location. Lunch served on a balcony with rainforest views.

We were just on a day trip to Cape Tribulation and Whet was recommended by the local grocery store. Lovely quiet rainforest setting. Not fancy but good quality and generous meals. Delicious fish and chips.

We ordered the Barramundi and chips for lunch, the aioli was beautiful while the batter of the fish was a little too tough but a lovely meal all around. It took a considerable time before we were seated.

If we had stayed longer at Cape Tribulation, we... More

This cafe rated itself as the best food destination for Cape Tribulation and in my opinion fell far short of its own accolade. We arrived for lunch, and once seated, ordered soup of the day and a Mezze plate. The soup, was tasty, albeit a small serving($9). The Mezze plate($23.50) was a very small serving with crisp, dry and tough... More

Stopped off for lunch while taking in the Daintree. I had the fish and chips, my wife had the chicken and avocado baguette. The fish and chips were good. Home made tartare sauce had a good tang to it and the chips were crunchy. Sadly the chicken baguette was dry and didn't have that much flavour and her chips were... More

Amazing food, in an unexpected location. We had the fish of the day and the Kangaroo, both cooked to perfection.
