When anyone special visits us in Cairns we take them to Thala Beach. The view is stunning but equal to the wonderful meals and service we've enjoyed here over the last 4 years. Always something special and well worth the drive up from Cairns!!

Nice salad and bread with yum garlic sauce. Nice view and private beach make you feel relax. But I think there should be a life guide on the beach. And the price is pretty high here due to the nice view and private beach.

Vegetarian salad meal was tasty, great atmosphere and service. The view and nature contribute to the experience of the restaurant. The location of the restaurant into the stunning Thala Beach lodge makes you feel awestruck as you walk the steps.

Amazing view from the restaurant. Food is very tasty and the atmosphere nice and relaxing. Friendly staff. A good stop for lunch, drink or just to enjoy the view.

Ospreys Restaurant overlooks a stunning beach. I only had a bowl of salad so i cant really rate the food itself but from looking at the menu it looks to be quite diverse.

We went there for a set menu lunch with TAFE. We had really tasty homemade hummus with bread and salad, as I never had salad with coconut, chilies and herbs - was really yummy and the staff were very friendly. The manager show us the apartments. I would definitely recommend this place to eat or stay for a while.

It has a great atmosphere (very fancy, expensive and relaxing) and was really beautiful with views of the beach. Amazing customer service with friendly staff. The salad though could have had a bit extra, such as adding some tomato or cucumber just to tie it together. But overall it was a nice place to go.

The food tasted good but it was nothing special, definitely didn't justify the price tag the only thing that redeemed this restaurant was the view.

I gave this an average rating as although the food was good we had many meals just as good but at a much better price. The location and view from the restaurant are wonderful, the main downside for us is we were under attack for the insect population during the meal, which reduced our enjoyment, we even bailed on dessert.

The restaurant is nicely positioned overlooking the sea and beach looking towards Port Douglas. Decor is dated, however fits in well with the location and is quite comfortable. Meals were not exciting and the service was average.
