Next to being at an interesting food place, note, that there is almost nowhere a Signal. Even australian Sim cards have no signal in daintree Arena. therefore no Internet. Copy all important TripAdvisor informations on your phone as you won't have access when travelling there. Hope it is helpful for you?

Lovely spot in amongst the trees, stopped for some lunch here. Most other places around have canteen style food and we weren't up for that so this was a nice alternative. Being pregnant it was hard to find something I could eat on their limited menu but they were very happy to alter it for me. The food was delicious... More

Terrific fresh food and wonderful staff. Worth the stop for a meal. Family run and lovely big deck outside to enjoy the area.

There are many places to eat in the Daintree however for two out of my three lunches I choose Whet. The deck is surrounded by lush rain forest. The menu is fabulous and caters for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. Service is friendly and nothing is too much trouble. This is a must do.

Sharing a veggie and meat option we were very impressed and they will literally cater to all dietary needs! The food was well presented and scrum my and the staff attentive but not overbearing. What more could one ask for in a rainforest setting.

I stopped in here for a late afternoon snack, intending to have something healthy, only to be (easily) persuaded to try a lime cake. Wow! It was very special. I also loved the setting. You park in the way back and actually have to walk through a rainforest path just to get to the restaurant entrance. It was kind of... More

We stopped in after an afternoon of treetop surfing with quite an appetite for a late lunch. Michelle was so friendly, food was well presented, generous and fresh. Sitting outside on their deck surrounded by the tropical Daintree with an icy cold cider and delicious curry certainly topped our experience. This is a family run enterprise who put the customers...

Being British, I've eaten a lot of fish and chips in my life. So it comes as quite a surprise that the best I've had was off the grid, here in the rainforest! Also, the beer was excellent. Several great draft ales (that didn't taste like the weak lager served in much of Australia). Bravo to the team at Whet.

The restaurant is well worth a visit. Everyone is really friendly and you eat in the rainforest. They even have a vegetarian menu. The food tasted very good and I would go here again. Prices are good, too. So I would recommend this restaurant warmly.
