Absolutely fantastic food. Expensive but worth it. Ordered food and it was on the table 30min later! Excellent service. Something we will do every year

Excellent as always. My first time in the new location, and it lacks the intimacy of the previous, but the food and service were still some of the best n Australia. A bit disappointed in the lack of nternational wines.

The cocktail list inventive and enjoyed my Cassowary cocktail. The food is good but a little overpriced but I guess it is a tourist town. Service very friendly and efficient.

About Ochre Restaurant

Go native Ochre Restaurant has been wowing Cairns locals and tourists alike for more than 20 years with its fresh take on local produce that manages to showcase such tricky ingredients such as crocodile and wallaby with real flair. If you can, try to snaffle a table on the pavement to really get the full Cairns experience. Somehow the fresh seafood, native game and bush foods such as tempura Gulf bugs on lemongrass with a green papaya salad and sweet chilli lemon myrtle dipping sauce, or the salt and native pepper leaf crocodile and prawns taste even more authentic that way. If you’re game, leave it to the Chef and opt for the Taste of Australia Ochre platter, a four-course set menu. If you prefer a la carte, then make sure you leave room for the desserts, which, if you’re lucky, might be the wattle seed pavlova or the pandanus panna cotta with a native tamarind coulis. Best dish: Wallaby topside slow-roasted in saltbush
