Food and service was good. A lot of hard work has gone into creating a very pleasant place. Aware of the environment in which they exist and very protective of it.

Please try the chocolate pudding, little creatures pale ale and veggie pumpkin if... More

We were in Cape Trib to do Jungle Surfing and staff at the Snake House recommended this restaurant for lunch. Staff and service were great and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely couple of dinners at this restaurant. Food excellent, staff knowledgeable and friendly. They were happy to chat as time allowed, offer suggestions and provide personal attention. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty! I recommend the fresh pasta with prawns, and any fish dish. This is by far the best restaurant option in Cape Tribulation with... More

This place is very nice, location is quiet in the trees and the lights at night make it even more special. The food was great. My hubby had kangaroo and loved it! Nice place for dinner. When leaving at night be careful for wildlife. We were returning to our hotel and the road has no lights and we came up... More
