“Great food in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Modern Australian cuisine with and superb view. Even if it is night, you still get to hear the water in the river and watch the wildlife. The service and wine selection was excellent as well.

“Delicious Meal in great surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The setting of the treehouse restaurant is breathtaking! We got a great table overlooking the little creek. We were four people having four different dishes and they were all just delicious - no matter whether one picked fish, lamb or steak everything was simply perfect - well worth the money!

“Wonderful food, staff and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

After a car trip up to the Daintree area in the morning, a late lunch at Silky Oaks was next on the agenda. We were not disappointed. The setting is calm and serene, the outlook over the Mossman River stunning, (even saw two Ulysses butterflies fluttering along on the other side of the river), the staff courteous, (even though we were not staying there) and the food very tasty. My husband and I both had a Waygu Beef burger, which arrived on a house baked bread roll, char grilled, with vegetables, cheese, tomato and chilli jam and potato wedges. We each had a drink, bottled beer, a Castaway cider and a coffee. Both the drinks and glasses were chilled, and the cider served with ice. The waiter was chatty, ask were we had been, spoke about the Eclipse of the sun the day before and suggested that as most of the guests had left, we could take a walk along the creek bank and look at the Mossman River. So we took the opportunity and did that after a lunch. Total cost was $ 75.62, which included a 1.5% surcharge on my credit card.

“Forest resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

A luxurious forest resort perfect for relaxing or exploring the forest. Good restaurant (perhaps they tried a bit too hard with some of the offerings) very comfortable individual lodge cabins. Best part was the forest walk and canoeing on the creak. Uk visitors will need deep pockets but glad we splashed out for this one

“Dining outside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Nice place to sit and enjoy the forest and the river downstairs. Excellent food and a friendly staff. But of course when your parents are Dutch.
