Flavour experience

Lunch platter was excellent - 3 dishes, spiced fries and a drink each for $32.50 per person. Delicious and good value.

The food service was relatively slow - not awful but not real fast. Made the meal a bit drawn out. Some of the meals were great, others not so much. But the best brûlée I’ve had in some time.

Went on dining 26th of dec , very limited staff, ordered drinks and took us 30 min to wait for the drinks to be serve, from starter to desert it took a long wait for every course, staff not attentive to needs ie water, orders have to call everytime to be served, staff keep dropping utensils all the time , and promise to bring one but never did.not sure if were coming back , my partner said to try again but not sure .thanks

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
