We had dinner here on the last night that they were serving dinner for the season. The food and service was excellent and Whet lives up to its reputation as the best food in Cape Tribulation.

Second visit and still amazing. Menu was varied and food was delicious. We were only disappointed that we had eaten a big lunch and couldn't fit in 3 courses.

We had lunch and dinner on separate days. Service was very good. Dinner was crowded but our meals came without any delay. Meals were tasty and reasonably priced. Well presented. Nice atmosphere although this place cannot be seen well from the road. Better to make a booking for dinner if planning to go there as it can get fully booked... More
