Food was delicious. Had the padta cabonara which was creamy and delicious. My husband had the curry of the day which was yummy, if a little on the luke warm side. Service was very friendly.

Kangaroo Fillet was Great, the Curry was a bit bland, Kids sized nugget meals were Great and good portions as well. Would highly recommend if you are in Cape Trib, especially if staying at Ferntree Rainforest Lodge as you are able... More

The restaurant itself is all wood built on the round with windows throughout. Charming decor. Interesting menu, quite varied, inexpensive. We ate there twice and the food was delicious - we sampled lamb, fish, and pasta.

Wonderful restaurant that blends in with the surrounding rainforest. Great relaxing, natural atmosphere with lovely happy staff. The food was excellent - I had Crispy Skinned Barramundi that was cooked perfectly (and I'm fussy with my fish). Hubby had Lamb Shanks that he devoured and raved about.

Now called "Off the Grid", we sat outside for dinner in the balmy night air. All our meals were delicious and served piping hot (steak, crispy-skinned barramundi, excellent chips) and the children's serve of fish and chips was generous; probably the best in the area. Our waitress was very efficient and friendly. Overall, a very pleasant meal - worth a... More
