This 'tea house' (restaurant) is rather hidden - and you will need to hunt for it. Two gentlemen operate this location using local food sources and their personal garden to create delightful dishes. The setting is nice and the experience well worth the adventure. Highly recommended.

Great location - you sit right among a lot of tropical plants. We had lunch which was very tasty, good service. Probably the best place to have lunch in Daintree village.

Our meals were both delicious, and NZ couple at next table just finishing said it had been the nicest meal they had enjoyed in their week's holiday in the area. Tropical fruits were explained and tasted. We just dropped in without booking and were lucky as they are often busy with tour groups, so next time will be sure to... More

we had the pleasure of having lunch at the Daintree tea house. The restaurant was surrounded by the forest and we were lucky to see a blue Ulysses butterfly. The restaurant served a variety of fruits that they grow on the property. The fish (barramundi) was excellent. there is both inside and covered outside seating

The line between 'quaint local establishment' and 'in desperate need of a breath of fresh air' is well and truly crossed here. Stopped in at the recommendation of our croc tour receptionist for lunch with my parents, sister and her kids. Restaurant is in a lovely, elevated position tucked away in the rain forest. The majority of the seating is... More

My friends and I were feeling like a coffee on the way to our river cruise . There was a closed sign near the front entrance , but the main door was open. I popped my head in the door to find a guy setting tables for the day . Any chance we could get a coffee , I asked.... More

We cannot expect you to understand why we were unable to assist you on the day you called, nor how unfair and hurtful your Social Media comments were. We do have neavy lunch reservations and as all our meals are prepared fresh to order this takes some time to prepare. Allowing us limited time for morning teas. The majority of... More

My husband ordered a fruit salad which he said was bursting with flavour. He had banana, persimmon, longan, soursop, pineapple, pawpaw, passionfruit and a few other things. The boiled pudding I got was banana fig and ginger -it was light and tasty. The outdoor seating area was lovely and warm and we saw a few of the local birds and... More

While traveling from the Mossman Gorge to the obligatory river cruise on the Daintree River, we stopped for lunch at the Daintree Tea House Restaurant. We were a group of about 16, and in addition to a very nice lunch, we were treated to a very interesting talk about the fruits and vegetables, many of which we had on our... More

I stopped in to the Daintree Tea House as part of my organised tour inclusion. This is a lovely quiet tropical atmosphere, not a 5 star gourmet restaurant... there are plenty of those in Cairns. I tried the Wild Barramundi (fish) cooked in white wine and herbs, which was lovely and light with enough flavour as to not overwhelm the... More
