Restaurants - Cape Tribulation, QLD
In the heart of Cape Tribulation, ancient rainforest meets city lounge where the genuine feel of the tropics stimulates the best menu in town.
Since 2007 Whet Cafe, Bar & Restaurant has been the epicentre of dining and entertainment in the tourist village of Cape Tribulation. Set amongst beautiful and untouched tropical Daintree rainforest, Whet combines the natural wonder of the environment with its own unique and modern atmosphere.
The outdoor deck area is the main focus of our dining experience. It brings the wonder of the rainforest right to your table and exudes an almost magical aura when lit by the natural light provided by fire.
As a contrast to the natural splendour of the outdoor deck area we also have an ultra modern indoor lounge area. The perfect place for a cocktail or pre dinner drinks featuring plenty of space and a fully stocked bar.
The menu at Whet is dedicated to showcasing all that Tropical North Queensland has to offer with a selection of ultra fresh local produce, meat and seafood, clean flavours with modern a la carte flair. Besides offering a visual ambience to delight your senses we also maintain the importance of providing quality food and this is evident when our repeat customers, both internationally and local, continue to savour everything Whet has to offer time and again.
To best meet the needs of our patrons Whet caters to all specific diets and has a year round vegetarian and gluten free menu available. Furthermore, Whet Restaurant is flexible in dining hours to best suit the demands of the tourist population with lunch meals served right through to 4pm.
Whet is also a function and event hub of the region. We cater for large and small affairs with up to 60 people for a formal sit-down dinner or can have up to 100 guests at a cocktail function. Whether for weddings, parties or corporate events Whet is the ideal place to hold your next planned social interaction.
Unique to the local area is our cinema lounge that formulates an additional entertainment element to our repertoire and has proved popular amongst tourists and locals alike. Our cinema lounge provides a cozy and private atmosphere.
