I chose Ochre for a special occasion. One of my sons turning 21, the other 24, so we combined both birthdays for dinner. This is my 3rd taste of Ochre and I am certainly a fan. It was my first time dining at the waterfront premises. Thank you for helping us celebrate.

I booked this place as a surprise birthday celebration for my partner. The food was amazingly unforgettable and the service was decent. This is definitely a place for couples and we would revisit again when we do come back to Cairns.

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 Davidson Plum Mousse. Most popular Dishes: Tempura Bugs on Lemongrass Skewers & Pork Belly with Queensland Scallops
