The setting of this restaurant amongst the treetops is impressive, and we had very good service. Our pre-dinner cocktails were delicious and beautifully presented. Unfortunately, the food itself just didn't deliver. We both had entrees and main courses. Both entrees had potential but weren't well-balanced...More

Staying at the resort, we had several meals at Osprey's and couldn't fault anything. The meals were delightful. The lamb was my favourite, but the barramundi came a very close second! The staff were attentive and helpful. It was a little disconcerting though to have...More

We stayed at the resort and so ate here twice. Both meals were unexpectedly top-notch. The atmosphere is very soothing and totally focuses on the surrounding nature. Service was very good and the pre-dinner cocktails were wonderful!
