Great food served with an even better view of the sunset settling by the bay. The food is made from ingredients from the grounds of the hotel, which helps to create an exclusive and tranquil experience

The chefs are wonderfully talented, have their own gardens for fresh ingredients, and even prepared our own freshly caught fish for us one evening. If I could give them infinite stars, I would!

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.

Hi CairnsCouple47, breakfast is included in some of our packages. There is also the option to not have breakfast included and simply order & pay when you check out, though it's more cost effective to have breakfast included... More
