“Chill out in chilled out Daintree Village”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Love the barra burgers here in particular. This is a great little place to chill out over lunch & a coffee after checking out the crocs on the Daintree River or just visiting the village. Have stopped in here often when showing visitors or family around the Daintree & Cape Trib area. The food is fantastic & good value. It can get a bit hectic when a couple of bus loads of tourists pull in (but what place doesn't!), but the rest of the time it is a very relaxing break with nice friendly staff.

“Breakfast After The Birds”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

A welcome break in the busy wildlife viewing schedule which started at dawn with a wildlife trip on the Daintree River in a boat without a roof. After seeing all that wildlife we needed re-fuelling and time to consolidate our wildlife list.
Meals at this casual restaurant are always simple and uncomplicated but fresh and wholesome. We loved the freshly brewed coffee.

“Basic but Great”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We ordered lunch at this place with great trepidation. It seemed so 'cafe-like', (and under-staffed with just a mum and her young daugter in the kitchen). But when our orders hit our table we were indordinately surprised and happy because it was wonderful food, with wonderful flavours, and expertly cooked! We had a fabulous meal and as a result, we totally recommend this resturant to anyone heading to the Daintree.

“Disappointment in daintree”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

After a 50 minute wait for a sandwich and burger that was ok at best.
Nice location but avoid if more than a handful of customers.

“Don't microwave the steaks they taste horrible”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for late lunch, looking forward to a steak burger. Restaurant was clean and inviting. Burger looked great on the plate, tasted terrible. The thin tough steak had been microwaved and was impossible to eat. It is a shame that in the low season you don't look after your customers. We are a Cairns based business who regularly send customers to the Daintree but not to your restaurant after today.
