We came for lunch as part of a tour group...what a cute place. It's almost too hidden in the rain-forest. Lunch had nice selections, and the fresh tropical fruits were delicious. Be sure to try one of the local wines. I tried the ginger one, which sounds totally weird, but really worked with the... read more

We went with a tour to daintree forest with whichlunch was included. Not only was there a perfect variety of meat/fish to choose from, the kangaroo meat we had was excellent, but the highlight was that the owner gave a fruit assortment of the most delicious tropical fruits and then also brought out the whole fruit and explained what we...

I despair when I read reviews of this place complaining about the atmosphere or the ambience. It's a tranquil little cafe, set in the rain forest, in the sleepy village of Daintree. If you want a buzzing, chic atmosphere with a mariachi band then this is not for you - but then again, why are you even here if it's... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was excited to try this restaurant. I am a massive fruit fanatic and was really looking forward to having a beautiful tropical fruit salad. I was disappointed. The fruit was chopped into tiny toddler sized pieces and covered in honey. I wanted to actually taste each fruit! It was also an incredibly... More

Peter R, Owner at Daintree Tea House Restaurant, responded to this review

The dish you ordered was from our Desert Menu, not our Lunch Menu and it is a variation on the traditional Fruit Salad. We use tropical fruit instead of cold climate fruit. Yesterday we used, sweet peach mango, non-acidic pineapple, Chico and Mamey Sapote [ both high in sweetness], Strawberry Papaya, sweet Star Fruit and white Dragon Fruit just to... More

This culinary gem perched on the side of a hill in the Daintree Rainforest was a pleasant surprise. We ate outside, under a canopy that had tropical foliage cascading from the roof like a verdant waterfall. My crumbed kangaroo steak was tender and served with a delicious salad. My wife had the barramundi, which was succulent and melted in the... More

Agree with other reviewers that this place is a little unique and even quirky but if you are ready to learn about the flora and fauna of the Daintree while you eat, this is the place! We were the only family there just a wee bit after the lunch hour and had a relaxing delucios meal. The grilled barramundi was... More

We arrived here expecting a tea shop and an assortment of different teas to drink but were welcomed to a hot empty 'restaurant' that served overpriced unoriginal meals. Don't bother stopping in

We came here as part of a tour, the menu choices were limited to four choices given to us however this is more than you get on your average tour and there was enough variety. My partner had the baramundi which was delicious, I had the steak which I have to admit was good. The fruit salads were both interesting... More

Wow, the food was so tasty, i tried the barramundi but between my friends and I we all enjoyed the other options too. The staff (Richard) i think, came over to tell us about the local fruit. This dude is an encyclopedia for exotic fruits! Enjoyed the whole experience thank you

Stopped off here for lunch on way to the Daintree river. Setting in rain forest was a little hidden away but a great find. Lovely owner and fantastic food made from natural ingredients
