We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening in the casual and inviting tropical setting looking out from the deck into the beautiful Daintree rainforest. The local pan seared Barramundi that we ordered was juicy and cooked perfectly. It was served on pea and zucchini fritters with curry sauce which complimented the fish beautifully and was very filling. The service was... More

I went to the restaurant on the recommendation of our B&B hosts and so glad I did. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was lovely & was not what I expected in a remote location. The staff was were incredibly friendly and took time to check in to make sure we were happy and recommended their favourite dishes. The chocolate... More

The food here is excellent. They offer a variety of fresh fish and other fare including vegetarian and gluten free. We love this place and went there twice.

There's all kinds of food in Cape Trib- cosy, eco, hippy, homemade, silly- but the food at Whet's is simply the best.

Of course you always happen to order one of their personal faaaavorites, but... More

This was a great lunch stop on our recent rainforest adventure. The barramundi fish and chips were fresh and tasty. Nice atmosphere among the trees. Wide menu offerings. Good coffee. Lovely place!

Stopped for lunch and were blown away The lovely and enthusiastic owner/chef is passionate about the food and personally sources each ingredient to her high standards. The lunch menu reflects the bounty of the immediate area. My wife had the nicoise salad and as someone from France declared it first rate. I had the grilled barramundi "burrito". While not a...

We stopped here after driving up for a day trip from Palm Cove with my husband and 11 month old. We saw a review in one of the brochures we picked up along the way and Whet didn't let us down. I had the chicken curry which was beautiful. As a lover of curry I didn't find it too hot... More

We ate dinner here and with cape trib being quite remote, thought it was going to be fairly average, but we're very pleasantly surprised! It was by far the best meal we have had in north qld (including port Douglas,cairns, Townsville and mackay). We ate the steak and the pork hock and had the chocolate dessert. Everything was so so...

Great location hidden from passing traffic you feel like you are a million miles from anything. Happy, friendly staff wait on you and the food is fresh. If we're up here again we will definitely visit again
