We only had time to visit Secrets on the lake for coffee and cake and were amazed at the scenery. As it was late in the afternoon I decided to forgo the coffee and have a cold glass of sparkling wine and take in the breathtaking scenery. We would have loved to have stayed in one of the treetop cabins... More

It was a pleasant surprise to see this restaurant at the edge of the lake. The place was busy and obviously is a popular spot. There is one road in and out and the restaurant is at the end of it, but it is still very close to Montville, whilst giving the impression of seclusion once there.

We had the most amazing breakfast. The food was delicious and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating to us with our 5 month old in a pram. The view was spectacular. The menu prices are comparable to the cafes and restaurants along the main Street in montville. I would highly recommend going for breakfast.

Thanks Rosie for reviewing us when I know you must be busy looking after your little one as well. Thank you for the comparison with Montville. The main difference is the ambience and the view. As you will have seen the reception and the cafe are full of beautiful woodwork and original touches that creates a "wow" factor and adds... More

An unplanned lunch after a nice Sunday drive in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Tasty food, excellent service and a magnificent location in the rainforest. We will be back, perhaps for a stay in a tree house for the week end.

We ate the twice baked beetroot soufflé (superb), mushroom risotto and fish. The bread was delish and the dessert menu looked good but couldn't fit it in.

A great location nestled in the trees. A unique experience if you want a change from the same old restaurant scene Not a huge menu but a good choice and the price is very reasonable Good kids menu also Highly recommended

Thanks Jay for taking the time to give us your review. You will have noticed it can get very busy so our menu is tailored so service is possible in very busy moments. We, however, do do daily specials which add to the variety of choices. That being said it is as large as most restaurants in my experience provide.... More

We had a wonderful lunch in a very unique setting. The service was impeccable and the food was great but more amazingly, affordable. It was lovely sitting in the tree tops with a view over Lake Baroon. As our table was being prepared, we were invited to view the unique art gallery that forms part of the restaurant. The only...

We recently visited with friends for a lunch date. The venue is very impressive with beautfiul wooden carved furniture and art pieces. Everything was very thoughtfully appointed and the tables were outside under cover but felt like you were among the forest. It is a good idea to book. Caution the fabulous meals are huge so either take a good... More

Thanks Mickey for taking the time to review us. We enjoy the fact that we have many customers return and often to bring visitors to the area and to have birthday parties and other celebrations.

When I made the booking I mentioned we were celebrating a birthday and would like to have a table with a view of the lake if possible. Well we certainly received very special attention and were seated in a small rotunda (perfect size for our table of eight) slightly off-set from the main dining area and overlooking the rain forest...

Thankyou Narelle for your review. I am pleased we were able to make the birthday celebration a special one. You may not realize how lucky you were being seated in the gazebo. People tend to book that one months ion advance. Kind regards George and Aldy! More
