This was not quite what we expected to be honest. Seems like a backpackers bar and venue; loads of young people about and quite a limited. At menu That said we all four are nice lunches which were value for money and cooked quickly.

We had lunch here on the day we arrived in Cape Tribulation. The resort feels a bit run down, but the bar/restaurant is locate close to the beach. Hubby had a burger and said it was good. The wedges were quite good too. It was an enjoyable meal but not the place to go to if you're looking for something... More

This is a nice spot, I think a YHA hostel with a very large canopy area for tour groups to eat. The food is reasonably priced and filling, good quality. While the facility has obviously been there a while, it is well maintained and has a friendly staff. There was no phone signal I think, and I don't know about... More

This place is marketed as a quiet relaxing place where the rainforest meets the reef, so the horrendously loud salsa music in the bistro should have been our cue to turn and go. But this place is quite literally the end of the (sealed) road. We had the worst calamari my partner has had in Australia. Clearly a packaged product... More

Took some visiting friends for a drive to Cape Tribulation and as far as the Bloomfield River. Stopped in for a late lunch in the way back. Pretty nice location for a back packer resort. Basic menu, $25 for mains. We all ordered the grilled Barramundi and some wedges. Huge fillet of fish with salad and chips, didn't really need... More

All fish dishes were beautiful, with fresh salads and sauces on the side for personal preferences to be catered to. Vegetarian options would be available easily without the fish/meat added, but this perhaps could be put on the menu for some who like it spelled out. Breakfast was my least enjoyed meal, but dinner more than made up for it.... More

It's simple enough that you can pick off the blackboard--no flipping through pages of mediocre choices--but everything is good. Covered porch eating, with a fun, low-key atmosphere. Save room for dessert!
