Our family ate here on all 3 days of our little cape tribulation expedition and has great food every time. All the food was freshly prepared by the chef in a timely and efficient manner despite often large groups presenting at the same time. The...fish tacos, sausage rolls and chicken burger were outstanding, and the coffee was excellent as well. A cold beer was also great in the summer heat. Wish it had been open for dinner as well. Staff were friendly and accommodating.More

Turtle Rock was superb. I didn't realise that my order wouldn't be brought over to me but otherwise I totally enjoyed my delicious late breakfast and flat white. A great atmosphere.

Went there today for lunch and ordered falafel. There was 3 little balls and some dry salad. That’s it. Balls were tasteless and salad was bland. Needed water to get them down. Definitely wouldn’t recommend this menu option.

Turtle Rock chicken burger and fries were hot and freshly cooked. The roasted beetroot and apple salad (from the specials board) was delicious !

Surprised to find this gem in the jungle! The food was amazing and the chef made a salad to die for from scratch. Highly recommend anyone travelling to Cape Tribulation to stop for food here.

Beautiful cafe located in the rain forest. Coffee was made to perfection! Went there every morning during our stay in Cape Tribulation. Breakfast burger was so tasty! Definitely try the veggie one too, it was very delicious. Not only was the food and coffee on...point, but the service from the staff was simply warm and welcoming. You won’t be disappointed visiting!More
