So here's the deal: Kuranda, as a whole, is a tourist trap. My advice: bring some food with you from Cairns if you are on a budget. I ate baramundi fish and chips with a salad at Kuranda Village Cafe Bar and Grill. The food was good, I really like their fish and chips, but it was incredibly expansive for... More

The setting of Kuranda Village Cafe is nice. How ever unfortunately the coffee and most of the food was a low standard. Sadly the woman serving us appeared to be having a bad day and it show in her service. The coffee was terrible and the big breakfast had hot elements that were cold. The eggs Benedict wasn't too bad,... More

Well this place is a buzz kill. What should be a nice little cafe has awful service, tasteless and bland food. A nice setting with bar. The staff were condescending, rude, couldn't put a smile on if they tried and don't allow change to the menu. The vanilla milkshake we had was just milk with no ice cream. The pizza... More

Ate here yesterday; not impressed with service, food or sustainability practices. Asked for some items to be left off burgers - was told shortly that "there is no altering the menu items - take them off yourself". I hadn't asked for a reduction in the price - seems ridiculous to me that they are prepared to waste food. The croc... More

Basically this place is not awful food wise; my club sandwich was nothing to write home about but it wasn't the best I have ever had (or close to the best). Chips could've been cooked in the fryer a little longer. One thing that surprised me was that there is absolutely no changes allowed to be made. Now I am... More

We got the emu burger and the croc burger. The meat was extremely dry and the buns weren't great. The margarita pizza was uninspiring - also dry. Coffee was ordinary. The banana smoothie and vanilla milkshakes were good though, and a cup of tea is a safe option. Best to stick to drinks if you go here.

An embarassment to local business and the towns reputation. 4-5 years of crappy reviews and yet they're still going - how? Something fishy going on I suspect. Should be investigated and shut down. Did not check the mobile beforehand but wish we had. It was just convenient, and thus entrapping. Another place where you have to order at the counter,... More

This restaurant is truly the worst place my family and I visited in all of Kuranda if not Cairns. When you walk in, the big posted menu doesn't have the prices listed on it so I grabbed a full menu off the counter and received a dirty look from a waitress. Then, when I was ordering, I asked for a... More

Had lunch here today with the family after taking the sky rail up and waiting for the train down. Great friendly service, and really nice food. Kids loved their meals, my husband and I had the barramundi burger which was excellent and I would highly recommend as a lunch spot while you are in town.
