First impressions of the restaurant when you walk in is WOW. It certainly looks the part, with the high backed chairs and great lighting. We had the 7 course tasting menu with matching wines and loved every course. The value for money is also great....More

Not only does this restaurant have the most incredible setting, the food and service were faultless. I come from a country where we love our steak, so I've eaten my fair share of high quality beef. I have never had a steak dish this perfect,...More

My wife and I were on our honeymoon and we decided this place was a must try while we were in Port Douglas. The atmosphere is great - you walk up this secluded trail into a rainforest where the restaurant is. We went with the...More

We decided to have the 7 course tasting menu (without matched wines), preferring to stick to the same bottle. The early courses were very small but sizes increased toward the end and we were satisfied without feeling full. Plates went back to the kitchen empty...More

What is the dress code? My wife and I are flying in from California, spending a few days in Port Douglas and have reservations for dinner. We're traveling light and don't want to take 'fancy' clothes we'd just wear for one meal, but also don't want to feel out of place.
