I'm kinda glad we didn't eat there considering the reviews below but my wife had a delicious smoothie there. She asked for a recommendation from the staff and the person doing the juicing came up and told her about a concoction for a sweet one. Don't know about anything else but I highly recommend the smoothies.

The atmosphere was great along with the view. The food was yummy, my husband said it was the best roo he's had for a while! Huge serves and... More

I can only assume the good reviews were written by the owners friend. I wish I had looked at trip advisor before going to Kuranda. As my husband said he has had better pies at a service station. The Kangaroo pie had never seen a kangaroo... Not sure what it was but it was grey tasteless and dry. Barramundi was... More

Wowza, there was nothing nice about this dining experience what so ever. Terrible, terrible food especially for the price paid. The advertisement of the rainforest was not apparent either. Think twice about dining here!

The only good thing in restaurant it's the wait staff. The owners are rude,and they doesn t know how to run a business. I found coco's running in the restaurant and my pizza was disgusting. Really don't even thinks to go there or bring your kids!! There are so many other nice places in kuranda,cheapers and with a nice hospitality.

Very poor. Food took a half hour to arrive. The kids' pizza was incinerated. My warm beef salad appeared to have been dressed in brine. Thimbleful of wine (from a goon) $7.50. My wife (who is normally more diplomatic) mentioned "tasteless" and "dog food" when describing her 'steak pie'. Worst food I've had in Australia.

This is a good place to take the kid's and have lunch. The view is great. Locals very friendly, and no way off putting like some places.

Waited too long to be seated. Took an hr for meals to arrive. Meals were cold and tasted like the read end of a horse. Complaint was met with, "we are busy". Utterly rubbish. DO NOT EAT HERE !! PS I am generally not one to write on these sites or complain but I really don't want anyone to have... More

Very disappointing! Food very bland and expensive. We paid $85 for nothing more than toasted sandwiches and a burger. Service was very slow. No one to take our money when we left. One table next to us had cold pies and refused to pay. Don't be lured by the rainforest setting - it's not worth it!

What looks to be a nice restaurant was certainly disappointing. Wish I had read reviews before deciding to eat here. Took a chef with us & he was bitterly disappointed. First the wrong meal turned up & then on leaving staff member/owner not happy to be told what main ingredients were missing from Chicken Caesar Salad. Drinks arrived after meals... More
