Stopped in at the Tea Hoise yesterday while on a cruise with Tropical Peaks, and boy was I in for a treat. Very friendly staff, mouthwatering food, beautiful rainforest setting, and highly interesting and informative talk on all the fruits we were lucky enough to dine on! Definitely something to experience, I'll be back for sure.

We stopped here as part of our tour to the Daintree Rainforest and thoroughly enjoyed everything! The food was fabulous and we got to try and experience foods we had never had before. All fruits were extremely fresh and perfect. The meats were cooked very well and were absolutely delicious.

NO one expected a beautiful restaurant, with white tablecloths, in the middle of the rain forest!!!. We were on tour and our group (12) and another group (6) had reserved lunch. The food was awesome but the best part was the use of tropical fruits in the meal. The two owners have been doing this for awhile and seemed to... More

A group of us ate lunch at this delightful spot and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the hospitality. They offered kangaroo steak and it turned out to be very tasty, something like venison and in no way dry or tough. The high spot of the food presentation was a sampling of any types of forest fruit, which were then described... More

We came here for lunch as part of a tour group. We had the barramundi and it was delicious. It was cooked simply, but this simply highlighted the quality of the fish. Wild barramundi is used - a local special. The real standout of the lunch, though, was the selection of tropical fruits that came with the food, together with... More

My wife and I were taken to lunch here as part of a tour of the Daintree Forest (see review for Daintree Safaris). Richard, the owner of the pub, clearly has a passion for his restaurant, serving and preparing fresh wild barramundi with chips, salad, and a multitude of tropical fruits, for which his passion for his pub is dwarfed....

We made reservation for lunch in the morning and got the last available table. We turned up just as the last tour bus was departing, we had the owners attention with the place to ourselves. The both of them were great to talk to about the food and how they came to be there. We both had different versions of... More

This was our lunch stop on a tour with Discovery Tours Australia and you never know what to expect. However, this was one of the best lunch stops on any tour I've been on. They basically closed the restaurant for us and the owner gave us detailed descriptions of the fruits and items served, explained how they were grown, where... More

Stopped off for lunch here after a croc cruise and asked for croc- 3 options! Picked croc with salad entree and it came in 5 mins, was really tasty and a good amount. I was also able to bring my own drink. So overall would recommend based on this short experience.

This 'tea house' (restaurant) is rather hidden - and you will need to hunt for it. Two gentlemen operate this location using local food sources and their personal garden to create delightful dishes. The setting is nice and the experience well worth the adventure. Highly recommended.
