Delicious chips and tiger prawns and awesome service. Love that it's off the main road and you still feel like you're in the rainforest. Thanks for a yummy lunch!

On our day trip to Daintree and Cape Tribulation from Port Douglas we needed somewhere to eat for lunch. I had seen some Trip Advisor reports of Whet and so we decided to dine here. Hidden away from the main road and nestled in thick rainforest Whet provides a brilliant natural ambiance. There was three of us for lunch and... More

Our family had a great meal here, kangaroo loin was fantastic, linguine in tomato chilli salsa was devoured by our two boys and my rib eye steak was superb. This was capped off with a divine flourless chocolate cake and a gelato that we all loved (dragon fruit, lychee and kiwi fruit). Absolute best meal we have ever had and... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Cape Tribulation and thoroughly enjoyed it. The barramundi was incredibly delicious and it was a great little atmosphere. WiFi is also available just ask the friendly staff for the password

This is the only restaurant we sampled so cannot compare to others in the local area. Good quality food and very hospitable staff.

This is a delightful restaurant tucked into the rain forest near Cape Tribulation. The seating area is surrounded by the forest and forest sounds/sights are seen everywhere. The menu is very interesting and filled with unusual items. We shared the Mediterranean salad and some tea. the food was excellent and interesting. Well worth a stop here. Prices are a bit... More

We had dinner at Whet on our last night at Cape Trip. What a find, the waitresses were lovely and the food delicious. The meal were quite reasonable considering the step up in quality for other restaurants we tried up there. Whet also seems to be a popular choice for locals when we asked around.

After an exhilarating time at jungle surfing we had a lovely lunch. Salad was so fresh and yummy. The service was very friendly and the reataurant was in beautiful surrounds and so eco friendly recycling and producing as much energy and food as possible.
