Dated and tired

So wish we had checked Tripadvisor before going to Kuranda. The name of this fooled us. We sat in hot restaurant that has plastic on top of tablecloths making it stickier and hotter than ever. Service from who we assumed was the boss was rude - she wouldn't take our drink order until we had our food order sorted. We... More

The food was frighteningly overpriced...Steak hamburger, no chips or sides, $17. Fish dish was tasteless, anaemic and served on a lump of mashed potatoes with no salad or veg. Dishes of one of our party forgotten. Hostile response to quiet word at the cash register about the issues. We were not even withholding payment! There were many other excellent options... More

What an appalling lunch. We ordered 3 teas, they only had 2. How do you run out of tea?. The daily soup was tasteless and needed 6 sachets of salt & pepper to be edible. The Roo burger was dry,dry,dry. The chicken in the toasted sandwich was precooked and reheated. When I spoke to the manageress she really didn't care.... More

Oh dear - that'll teach me not to check here first. Visited today for lunch. First impression was good - looked like a good menu in pleasant surroundings but the food was extremely disappointing. Hubby had the Lots of Fun Burger and proclaimed it was far from fun with the meat dry, plastic cheese melted on the burger a travesty,... More

Thought it would be great to try some crocodile and roo burger here. Let's just say I won't judge those meals on how they were prepared at this establishment. Chicken nuggets tasted like chicken nuggets though:)

Attracted by the romantic sounding name, we decided to have lunch at this establishment whilst on a day trip to Kuranda. What a mistake! As soon as we sat down at the shabby table in the large but deserted eating area, we started to get an uneasy feeling. The "rainforest view" consisted of windows looking out onto a neglected piece...

ek Dont be fooled by the big menu. I feel sorry for anyone who eats here without first reading these reviews first... as we did. $27 for a "Seafood Basket" which had 4 salt pepper squid, 4 crumbed prawns, a battered peice of fish and some chips, all of which were from home brand frozen boxes. No kidding. They were... More

When you read the menu you truly get the feeling that it cant be too bad...wrong...First off it shouldn't be called a restaurant its more cafe style, furniture old , plastic table clothes, and a dog wondering around the front of house. We ordered a blt and open chicken toasties,One small rasher of bacon but a load of lettuce on... More

Well the view was nice and the staff was pleasant but the food was horrible. The t-bone steak we ordered as medium was over cooked and dry, the veges were frozen cause luke warm outside, cold in the middle and the mash potato tasted like it was made from a powder. The coffee was very very weak and the mango... More
