The trouble with reviews and the ranking system here is that at times it can compare chalk with cheese. So let's get it straight from the start: this is a place that makes its living from serving hungry tourist food from an extensive yet commonplace menu. Toasted sandwiches, burgers, salads, pizzas and pies. Mentions of kangaroo and crocodile peppered the... More

One of the worst places I have eaten. As we sat there we noticed that everyone seemed to be complaining and as we were paying all three customers in front if us were telling the owner that the place was a disgrace. The first group waited over an hour to be served. The second guy had to send his meal... More

It took 30 mins to have our order takien .That was after chasing them up 3 times.our order was taken at 12.20 and delivered at 1 pm again asking twice where our meals were. We also notice several other tables complaining.really spoils the whole day and left us to rush around the markets because of time lost.

Thank you for your review. During the conjunction period of school holidays in Australia with Summer's American and European holidays, we serve over 500 guests a day. There is a sign at the entrance that informs the incoming guests about 30 minutes waiting on service. We pride ourselves with our fresh restaurant quality meals which are made to order. We... More

It was pouring with rain when I went so I stopped in for a hot chocolate, it was beautiful looking at the view as it rained. A little expensive but you do tend to get that in Kuranda with all the tourists!

Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you were taking the time to write a positive review. The majority of our guests are very happy with their dining experience and unfortunately we get only those negative reviews which are few and far compare to the volume of guests we serve on a daily basis.

Horrible food and terrible service. Prices of meals too expensive for the dishes served. Had to wait 30 mins for pie and chips. When we gave them feedback, got told by a staff member "I don't care"

we waited 40minutes for food that was overcooked with no apologies or explanation. 'steak' Pie was obviously a bought frozen pie not fresh at all.To top it off add expensive badly mixed postmix drinks and it just ruined a otherwise lovely day. Recommend you avoid especially if you have children.

Was waiting to order and couldn't get anyone's attention after 5 minutes. So I went to the counter area and said I would like to order rice. She didn't look at me but just bit my head off and said we have table service. When I explained I had been trying to get someone's attention for the past 5 min,... More

Don't bother. Food is below average at best. $24.00 for a pizza that looks like it was bought from the frozen section at Coles. Keep walking

Sorry you did not enjoy your pizza. We are proud to serve our pizzas. We get very great comments especially from Italians. We make everything fresh including the base. We believe $24.00 for a large gourmet pizza with table service is very reasonable. More

To sum up our experience here... "Terrible" "dissapointing" and "waste of money". My partner ordered a burger without tomato and cucumber, only for it to arrive with said accompiments, i offered to have the cucumber and tomato to which the waitress replied "oh well you paying for it anyway" in a very rude snarky manner. Also, my friend ordered a... More
