Really lovely service and food. Had the Barra and chips with their homemade tartar sauce. Was great! Nicely furnished place too (although I know that is an odd thing to admire).

Lunch at the Whet Restaurant was included as part of our day-long trip into the Daintree forest and turned out to be one of the best parts of the day. The seared tuna nicoise salad was superb as was the wild barramundi tortilla wrap. Best...More

I am not joking when I say this was the best meal overall for quality and price we had in FNQ. The setting is lovely, on a deck undercover with a bush setting. The staff were friendly and quick to recommend some awesome local beers...More

Beautiful setting in the rain forest, and great atmosphere in the restaurant is a good start to an exceptional eating experience. The owners should be justifiably proud of their product, the food was excellent, the wine and other drink choices good but I should make...More

we asked for recommendation from our hotel host, and he simplely said Whet is the best restaurant here. The food was great, the setting was beautiful and the service was nice. All in all, wonderful.

Probably the best meal I had while staying in North Queensland, and was far, far better value than I would have expected. Understated venue, friendly staff and really fast service. Definitely stop here while driving Cape Trib.

The decoration at night did give this place a atmospheric impression. We did not make a reservation and did get a table but later in the evening all tables were in use. The meals are good but the portions are a bit small.

The restaurant can’t be seen from the road and relies on its reputation. It was recommended to us by two different sources. It has a healthy well balanced menu with lots of warm salads to choose from along with the usual fare. The food we...More

We had lunch and dinner here. Great food and friendly service at a good price, in a beautiful spot. As a bonus it was my girlfriends birthday, they came out with a cake and sang happy brithaday too.
