I guess being at the top end of Australia they should be excused for having a basic menu. Of course they are going to have barra. They had some gluten free and some vegetarian options along with a reasonable steak sandwich. In the rainforest , very friendly staff , situated up off the road approx 15 mins from Cape Tribulation.... More

Came to this place with no expectations considering all the other places that were either closed or second-rate, however, this place from the service to the food was absolutely superb! Provided they keep the same level of quality service they shouldnt have a problem with future customers. The barramundi was divine! One waitress was also very helpful.

We recently had a delicious meal at Whet on our visit to the Daintree area. The food was so fresh and delicious, the decor simple but fitting to the surroundings, and the service was outstanding. One would expect a restaurant of this caliber in a large town or city, and we were so pleasantly surprised with what a fabulous meal... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here. The food was of a high quality and very friendly service. The owners have put in a lot of work building the property and it has a lovey big deck with wooden tables and chairs - great rustic feel about it with a modern twist. If you are looking for something a little more up... More

Very nice place to enjoy diner. Right outside and in the middle of the rainforest. Great food and wines to enjoy with friendly and knowledgeable staff. The restaurant owners have a vision and mission. They want to be as eco friendly as possible and I think they are. Don't mis it!

This was a very good restaurant with well executed, very tasty food cooked by a team of chefs that clearly know what they are doing. Fresh ingredients, a diverse but not long menu. We had chicken curry and also a crispy ham hock with a thai caramel and green papaya salad. The wine list is also one of the better... More

We only had a coffee here but the coffee was good, the desert were tasty and the staff was very friendly and offered good service. Sitting out on the terrace in the middle of the jungle is an experience in itself. Well recommended,

Firstly its a very beautiful location and the food quality was great. The reason my group felt ripped off is the pricing had a hidden charge. I ordered with my group hot chocolates and cake. The prices of the two sizes of cups were on the counter and we ordered the smaller cups for $4. While sipping our hot chocolate... More

After walking Mosman Gorge and driving to Cape Tribulation we were really not sure what we were having for lunch. Curious about the sign we drive up the driveway. What a wonderful surprise. First the setting , service, and smiling faces was an absolute delight. The menu was amazing and we were all very happy with our choice. The fudge... More
