This would have to be the strangest dining experience that we have ever had the misfortunate to have! I can not understand previous good ratings- new owners perhaps?? We were greeted with the male (?owner?) waving his hands above his head in the car park saying the that there would be a long delay for food. It was 2pm and... More

This luncheon was part of a Discovery Day Tour, and was absolutely delightful. Our host, Richard, spoke with us about the various fruits and foods grown and included in our meal which was beautifully presented and delicious. I still want the mango chili chutney recipe!

What a great place to stop for a proper afternoon tea and fresh scones. Charming staff serves tea in China cups with hot, fresh scones. They even accommodated my son's request for extra-chocolatey hot cocoa! Worth the stop on the way up to the Daintree Village.

Unfaultable restaurant. Perfect serenity. Surrounded by rainforest, with sunbirds feeding less than a metre away in the native flowers. The waiter was as pleasant and polite as a British butler.. well dressed and well mannered. Food was a great portion size, fantastic array of salad and fruit next to my Thai inspired dish. I begged for the recipe to the... More

This is a great little family tea house which always lives up to its high reputation of creating a beautiful meal. Be it a morning tea or lunch, you will not be disappointed. Everything on the menu is delicious & has a local touch. The exotic fruit talk given each day by Richard is interesting. This is another must do.

We stopped here for a late lunch after our day in the Daintree and really enjoyed it. The restaurant has an open indoors and a covered outdoors area and seemed set up to cater to large groups, although mid-afternoon we were the only people there to dine, which was great. We had the barramundi (delicious) and toasted ham/cheese sandwich with... More

We popped in for a cup of tea and scones but ended up with fish meal which was quite good. The waiter/co-owner is very eccentric (almost like “find Wally) but a walking encyclopedia when it comes to food . Do yourself a favor and visit them after your river expedition.
