Sharing a veggie and meat option we were very impressed and they will literally cater to all dietary needs! The food was well presented and scrum my and the staff attentive but not overbearing. What more could one ask for in a rainforest setting.

I stopped in here for a late afternoon snack, intending to have something healthy, only to be (easily) persuaded to try a lime cake. Wow! It was very special. I also loved the setting. You park in the way back and actually have to walk through a rainforest path just to get to the restaurant entrance. It was kind of... More

We stopped in after an afternoon of treetop surfing with quite an appetite for a late lunch. Michelle was so friendly, food was well presented, generous and fresh. Sitting outside on their deck surrounded by the tropical Daintree with an icy cold cider and delicious curry certainly topped our experience. This is a family run enterprise who put the customers...

Being British, I've eaten a lot of fish and chips in my life. So it comes as quite a surprise that the best I've had was off the grid, here in the rainforest! Also, the beer was excellent. Several great draft ales (that didn't taste like the weak lager served in much of Australia). Bravo to the team at Whet.

The restaurant is well worth a visit. Everyone is really friendly and you eat in the rainforest. They even have a vegetarian menu. The food tasted very good and I would go here again. Prices are good, too. So I would recommend this restaurant warmly.

What can I say! A gem amidst a 'not so nice' experience at Ferntree Lodge next door. Outstanding food, exceptional table service and attentive hosts made for an unforgettable lunch and dinner. Well done for getting it absolutely and undoubtedly 100% RIGHT!!

Stopped here for a bite during a ride to the Bloomfield Track. Service was friendly, food was nice. Nothing too fancy just a good lunch.

A total gem in the middle of the jungle. We didn't expect to find such a good quality restaurant in this remote part of Australia. The ambiance is very fitting and the staff are very friendly. We loved it so much that we went back for a lunch the next day before heading out to Port Douglas.
