Welcome to Whet Restaurant

Since 2007, Whet Café, Bar & Restaurant has been the epicentre of dining and entertainment in the tourist village of Cape Tribulation.

Set amongst the beautiful tropical Daintree Rainforest, Whet combines the natural wonder of the surrounding jungle with it’s unique & casual atmosphere.

Located right in the heart of Cape Tribulation, and aptly named to “whet your appetite”, the delicious range of cuisine on offer at Whet Restaurant is sure to make your visit to the Daintree memorable.

Whet’s formula is simple: an emphasis on local produce, seafood hauled from the surrounding waters, fresh, clean flavours and a menu that oozes creative flair.

With beautiful fire lit outdoor deck dining surrounded by lush tropical rainforest gardens, an attractive cocktail lounge area, icy cold beer & the best coffee in town – Whet is Cape Tribulation’s number one destination restaurant.

Whet is able to cater for small & larger events with up to 60 people for a sit down dinner or 100 people for a cocktail function.

Whether for weddings, parties or corporate events – Whet is the ideal place to hold your next planned social interaction in the Daintree.

Whet is a fully self-sustained off-grid business

Whet is a family owned business, opened in 2007 by Matt & Michelle Wenden.

They have had 3 children since opening. Chloe 8yrs, Noah 6yrs, & Ari 4yrs.

Whet was built entirely by the Wendens & took almost 2 years to complete.

Whet is fully self-sustained & “off-grid” – with generated diesel power, a tertiary level sewerage & grey water treatment plant, our own private water supply & rubbish removal. Where ever possible, Whet recycles all waste materials.

Our grey water is used to irrigate our tropical fruit orchard at the rear of the property. Our rubbish removal is done by us, by hand to ensure maximum recycling. Our polystyrene containers are re-used by local environmental groups to grow plants & seedlings for revegetation projects & our cardboard is used to mulch our tropical fruit orchard.

Come on in & whet your appetite at WHET!
