After shopping in Cairns, it was suggested we try Ochre Restaurant on the waterfront. We were not disappointed. I ordered the Aussi Burger (about 800-900 grams) made with beef and kangaroo. It was enough to share, but I managed to eat about 3/4 of it....More

Beautiful restaurant, great romantic dinner for the traveler. My wife and I had kangaroo and wallaby, both were cooked very well. Great price for a romantic dinner.

This is our first visit to Ochre and it won’t be our last. Situated on the waterfront, staff are helpful and attentive. The food is excellent. We will definitely visit again next time in Cairns. Very enjoyable evening. Highly recommend.

I have dined here whenever I am in Cairns for the last 16 years. Great Australian fare, with crocodile and kangaroo on the menu. No longer centrally located in Cairns CBD, but the new views are worth the walk. Most of the staff are friendly...More

OMG the pork belly is to die for. So delicious and crispy. Only had entree size but the meal was a generous portion and just enough. Also had a very flavoursome side salad and shared a wonderful desert. I can’t fault the food at all...More

The Australians are very friendly and wonderful hosts. No problem with children, but the food is different, so you might want to bring something for your child to eat if he or she is not inclined to try new foods.

Not BYO - Ochre is a Fine Dining Experience, you don't want to rock up with your esky :) They could cater for 18 - you'd have 18 of the most satisfied people in Cairns afterwards - my favourite restaurant.
