As soon as I saw crocodile fillet on the menu outside that was it for me as I'd always wanted to try it. It came in two pieces, one of which I couldn't even get my knife through so I left that. Rather than complain...More

Great views. That's it: great views. Everything else is better elsewhere, and probably cheaper. Just too self confident by half.

Decided to have a late bite to eat before leaving. Service was quick and meals were fast. Food was ok. Nice and cool with plenty of seating and lovely view.

DO NOT EAT HERE! Don't let the rainforest view entice you; the view is the ONLY thing that this establishment has going for it. The meals are: small, well overpriced, and look as though they have been made in a home economics kitchen at the...More

Family of 8 - GF isn't true GF. Sent Surf and Turf back as found lump of something in potato. First time ever to write a review on a place - worth the time given how bad food and service was.... So disappointing!!!

Since I already responded to your friend, I briefly explain the "lump of something" in the potato was a minute piece of potato skin. I actually find this assuring that the mash potato was fresh and not packet mix. Sincerely the chef

What a lovely place to eat. Food was good we had pizza, burgers, chai latte and scones which every one enjoyed. Service was good and friendly. I loved the fact they had a dog in the restaurant to greet us! Very good!More

Beautiful ambience of the rainforest backdrop as you enter the restaurant and a calming effect on you as a guest. Prompt service by staff and the meal was quickly delivered. Meal was enjoyable.

Stopped for lunch. Nice location. Decided to share a pizza. Pizza was delicious and arrived quite quickly. Went to pay and got charged $2 extra because we shared. Wasn't mentioned on the billboard. Never had this anywhere else. Seems a bit silly.
