This place is right on the water and gives you a nice view. We stopped here for lunch. I felt like it needed a bit of updating. The food was not bad and staff was friendly.

Stopped in for a light lunch. Beautiful location, lovely food. We just had the toasted Turkish rolls and chips, yum yum. No high chairs for the little ones which made it a bit tricky but apart from that was very nice.

After spending a day touring around the Daintree it was great to sit back, admire the rolling waves and eat deliciously cooked fish and chips. The side salad was yummy and the view was spectacular. What more could anyone want?
