Great spot in a beautiful environment. The food was very tasty and reasonable prices. The only issue was the kids burger had mustard seeds all through the meat, which wasn't mentioned on the menu. Most kids aren't keen on mustard.

This cafe offers very good food, at reasonable prices. It's outdoor and indoors seating areas are charming, situated on a deck, and surrounded by large,rain forest trees. Very nice staff, service is fast. The iced tea is especially good on a hot day, and the hand made tomato relish we also also order frequently.

We paid $20 to go through the (approx.) half hour rainforest walk, with the intention of sitting in the café for morning tea afterwards. The rainforest walk was fantastic, but when we entered the café we were told there were no spare tables available. Looking around there was a sea of elderly people, none of whom had done the rainforest... More

Good food. Slow service (waited 15 min to tea and toast ?!) . Fascinating shop. Educational Film. Wonderful 1 hour boardwalk (extra charge) suspended above the ground with signposts and fascinating plant and bird life.
