This restaurant is actually on the Mossman Daintree Road, located at the Eco Lodge & Spa but it's open to non-residents. Beautiful setting in the rainforest with a deck and views over a small pond/creek. At night the sound of the rainforest comes alive here. Had dinner and breakfast. Both well presented, great quality and tasty food. All for a... More

Stayed in the Daintree Eco Lodge so had dinner here a couple of nights. Mains and dessert were amazing and well cooked. Staff were also extremely friendly. All this is topped off with the beautiful surroundings of the Daintree forest.

Whilst holidaying in Port Douglas in April 2016 I managed to find this hidden gem online after doing a little research on Trip Advisor and decided to book in for breakfast with my family for my 30th Bday. WOW! What a way to dine. It was a nature lovers dream! You feel completely secluded and apart of nature whilst sitting... More

Simply outstanding restaurant. The chef personally came out to review our dietary requirements and cooked something to my liking. The food is exceptional, the staff are friendly and the setting is divine. We'd recommend putting this restaurant on your bucket list!

Excellent atmosphere on the verandah in the middle of a rain forest and the service from Therese was first class. Could have been happy with adequate food in this environment but the quality of the food was first class in both product and value. The rib-eye was so much better than the nearby pub's steak and yet the price was... More

We enjoyed an amazing dinner at Julaymba Restaurant & Bar! The service was 5 star and the food was faultless! All eight of us enjoyed our three course meals. I would highly recommend when visiting The Daintree! We will be back for sure

A relaxed and warm inviting environment with beautiful views. Food was devine and so fresh and delicious, we ordered the crab for entree and then two mains which were buffalo and kangaroo in a dark chocolate jus. Luke our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the area. A romantic dinner for two is what we expected and what we received.... More

The setting was lovely. If it wasn't for the setting I would have given it a one star. We came right as they opened at 6pm. Great table by the water. The rolls were a highlight. The butter was soft and had a nice seasoning. We ordered the fish special which was coral trout. We have had it a couple... More
