Description: There are not too many places these days that can claim to be truly, "at the end of the road". Though this peaceful little village is one of them. Nestled on the banks of the mighty Daintree River and bordering the oldest living rainforest, Daintree Village makes up for its lack of size with heart, wonder and a spirit of adventure... And only short drive north of Port Douglas, the Daintree Village Hotel is the perfect place to start your northern journey...

“A great way to wind down at the end of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We recently stayed in Daintree Village, and chose to eat at the Village Restaurant each evening. We loved the friendly service provided to us each evening by Mitch, and the chats with the other visitors to the area. The food choices had variety, so we were able to choose something different each evening. This is not a high style restaurant, but more of a down home diner. The roast night on Sunday was a treat. I also highly suggest the pan seared fresh fish. Thanks for making our stay in Daintree so much fun.

“Basic restaurant, great hours”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Food basic but tasty. Not a great amount of choice. I am not the best reviewer as I have some food intolerances, so my choices were limited. People very friendly, helpful.

“Slow and iffy service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Great position in the village but "detached" service from weary looking staff. Very slow service, coffee was dire. Had to ask where our meals were after 45 minutes wait (odd because the place was not that busy). Food was OK when it finally arrived, but they had lost us by then.

“Truly awful service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I went to this resturaunt with family and friends and was extremely dissapointed in the level of service. It took almost 30 minutes for us to get our meals, and when they arrived they had forgotten one of the dishes.
The staff were very unhelpful throughout the experieince.
I will not be visiting this establishment again.

“Terrible and slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Wasn't great. Had apparently new staff constantly apologising for simple mistakes and not understanding what a special was. Or the manager arguing with and yelling at the new chef a frazzled looking older lady. Or waiting nearly an hour for fish and chips on a not particularly busy day.

Then sending our food to a different table forcing my poor ol' dad to wait a bit longer. Not a great time.
