Amazing location on the deck surrounded by the rainforest. We were there on parmigiana night and I thoroughly enjoyed meal.

Tasty food, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. The owner Michelle was so accommodating with our kids and kept them happy. Whet restaurant is a gem that fits right in with the rainforest surrounds.

Had lunch here and the food was so good and the service was so amazing that we decided to book a NYE dinner here as well. Lunch was great but the food at dinner was next level. I would recommend that everyone should stop here...for a bight to eat when in Cape Tribulation.More

Fantastic food at Cape Trib - Whet was an awesome find. Unassuming road presence but we are so very glad that we came in here. No booking but very welcomed. Some of the best wild barramundi we have ever had in a delicious coconut tempura...batter. Scrummy taro chips were yummy and Michelle was kind enough to swap my chips for salad. Thanks for a delicious and well priced valued lunch for our two families. We were all so full we only needed a small dinner much later that night. Best of luck for the continued success of this little gem. Thank you.More
