This place was recommend to us by staff where we were staying at the Daintree Eco Lodge &Spa. We were not disappointed. We had the chicken burritos which were absolutely delicious. Fresh, tasty ,jam packed with flavour, and the burritos had been char grilled to perfection. The owner was friendly and made special efforts to keep some nearby young children... More

We found by chance - only a little road sign alerted us to take a look. Well worth it. Great staff and beautiful meal - local wild barramundi Enjoyed a house made lemon lime bitters which was refreshing Would recommend

We were late arriving at our accommodations. Our hostess recommended Whet, which was a short walk down the road. It's a little rustic, set in the rain forrest, and we weren't quite sure what to expect, but the food, service and atmosphere were superb. The barramundi was perfectly grilled and all the accompaniments were delicious. Perhaps it was just that... More

We stopped by for a late lunch as it was recommended by our hotel (Silky Oaks lodge). I had a fantastic fresh tuna nicoise salad and my partner had yummy fish and chips. The staff were very funny and friendly. The setting was so so but overall was a good place for lunch.

It hasnt been formally awarded the trophy for Australias best chicken parmy. But i recon its time to clear a spot in the pool room, because these guys are a shoe in for this years Parmy Awards. Not to mention its the ONLY place in town doing goldies on tap. Nice one Whet. Keep up the good work

We loved it here - so much so we kept returning! Staff are friendly and welcoming and food is delicious - particularly the chicken curry and chocolate pudding - it's making me hungry just to think of it!

I reviewed Aquarius yacht/snorkelling and said it was one of the 2 best things to do in Port Douglas. A day trip to the Daintree is the other, and people told us it cant be done properly in one day, but we disagree. We had a rental car, went to the PD Sunday markets, didn't leave till after 10 and...

Set in a rainforest, we ate out in the open on the large terrace. The food was excellent and the staff friendly. An excellent suggestion by previous TripAdvisor visitors.

I travel on this road for work every month and for the first time stopped at Whet to check it out. So glad I did as I will now be stopping for lunch every time I go through. The food (barramundi) was excellent and very affordable. Really friendly staff. Lovely rainforest setting. This is the best eating place in this... More
