“Spectacular views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This restaurant is part of the Thala Beach Eco Lodge (which looks like a great place to stay). It’s located at Oaks Beach, on a private road just south of Port Douglas.
It was a novelty for us to have a valet park our car when we arrived! We had had to book for our Sunday lunch but I would think weekday lunches would be a bit quieter.
The restaurant is in a lovely leafy setting, situated high amongst the rainforest & open-sided to catch the breezes – which makes for a restful tropical atmosphere.
Our waitress was attentive, friendly & efficient (thank you, Anne!); two of us we were able to alter the menu choices offered; & the food was spot-on!
The mains cost approx. $30. This is an ideal spot for that special occasion.

“Simply Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

For the last three or four visits to Port Douglas, an always "must-do" on the list is to come and have lunch or dinner at Thala Beach in Osprey's Restaurant. The ambient setting is uniquely gorgeous in every way and it is in every way 5* from the moment you arrive at Thala. Complimentary Valet Parking for ALL guests make it really feel like you've arrived and then you are led up an amazing staircase to the open surround deck dining area where you can eat whilst admiring the amazing views of the bay.

The food is absolutely sublime and a firm favourite for me is the Linguini served with locally caught prawns. This area is renowned for it's seafood and the prawns are the best I've ever had.

The restaurant seats could do with some cushioning to them but otherwise the lounge and bar area are amazingly relaxing.

I would challenge anyone to find fault with this place!

“Eating well at a resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Very good food for a resort restaurant. Generous servings and very well presented food, as well as being very tasty. A stunning location with the added bonus of seeing the namesake birds flying past the restaurant

“John Kerry and Mum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had lunch here for my 60th birthday. We were revisiting the venue at which my nephew and wife were married.

Food - outstanding (coconut prawns were sublime).
Service - brilliant (thanks Rhi)
Other - staff arranged for a golf cart to get Mum up and back from the car park because the hotel has many stairs to negotiate as well as steep climbs.
Views - breathtaking

A must visit during your trip to PD.
