Top presentation and location, but I think the Asian infusion bit is way overdone. Not to my liking I have to say, but others clearly do like it from the reviews I've read.

Heard so much abut the place. Unique setting. Feels like you are dining in a rain forest. We had the 7 course degustation menu. Great creative food, professional service. Only negative, the main course was ordinary. All the rest, amazing.

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.
