Frogs Kuranda

Esablished in 1980 and still run by the same dedicated family of chefs, baristas and managers.

Reviewed By Nick S - Melbourne, Australia

We were a big group on a visit to Kuranda and were happy to find a restaurant with such big variety and not too expensive. Price matched the quality imo. Beer price was very reasonable.
Pub type food (variety of Baramundi dishes), Indian curry & rise, Italian Pizza and what not, all in one place. It will probably accommodate over 100 guests at a time.
The location was quite handy to market and where tourist bus drops you.
Service was not bad at all at the busy time, we were there.

German Tucker Kuranda

Reviewed By retireeVancouver - Vancouver

German Tucker is a popular cafe located in the "mall" of shops at the end of Coondoo Street in Kuranda where tourists can visit the Butterfly Sanctuary and other animal attractions. This restaurant is easier to find by approaching it from those animal attractions, otherwise it is a bit of a meander past many shops. At noon, when we stopped for lunch, there was a lineup.
A menu on a board over the cashier displays the various choices and prices. I opted for a white sausage in a bun topped with sauerkraut and fried onions ($7.50) while hubby had a plate lunch of bratwurst sausage served with sides of potato salad and a beer ($16). Besides these traditional German meats used for the hot dogs, the cafe also offers crocodile, emu, and tofu hot dogs for the same price. Coffee and tea were a bargain at $2.50; beer from $6. The bun is like a hoagie roll - crusty and fresh. Sausage is thick and long - not skinny and short.
This place is really a food kiosk. Once food is paid for the plate is placed in one's hands and then the search begins for Seating. Picnic style tables, covered with plastic tablecloths, spill out into the market area and are insufficient; thus they encourage group Seating - sharing with strangers. Condiments are on the tables to add as much as you want to the hot dog. The eating area is covered overhead, but not air conditioned; floor is cement; washrooms elsewhere; shops all around.
German Tucker is a rustic, German fast food eatery where the tasty, inexpensive meal fills you up.

Barron Falls Hotel Kuranda

Reviewed By petsaloz - Canberra, Australia

We dropped into this hotel for a beer and a glass of wine prior to our trip down the mountain on the Skyrail. The wine tasted as if the bottle had been opened several days ago and my wife complained on her first sip that it tasted bad. My complaint at the bar was met with indignation and I was told emphatically the wine was fine. The barmaid did go to others to escalate but they didn't come over so she dismissed my complaint with an added comment that they also said I had no grounds for complaint. I returned to my wife explained the outcome and she refused to drink the wine.
Shortly after, another barmaid came over to follow up on my complaint. She listened to my explanation that the wine tasted as if it had been opened for several days, agreed with this observation but maintained I had no grounds for complaint. We left the wine sitting on the table and departed.
This would rate as my worst experience in a hotel anywhere in the world!

Petit Cafe Kuranda

Restaurant

Reviewed By MissMapleLeaf - Cairns, Qld

This is a locals’ favorite well-hidden from the tourist section of Kuranda. Located in the “original” markets, you’ll need to weave through the incense-filled stalls and the Bob Marley music to find this hidden gem.
There’s a huge menu of savory crepes including ingredients such as Kangaroo prosciutto, macadamia pesto, Gorgonzola, and black truffle oil. There are also many indulgent sweet crepes too.
Take the time to find the Petit Cafe.

The Restaurant at Cedar Park

Relax and enjoy your evening. Transform dinner into a chill out part of your day, not another chore taking your free time and energy. Dine with your family, friends or yourself. We have gone through the process of cooking, freezing, defrosting and testing many unique recipes to get a diverse menu of dishes which come up perfect. We do not skimp on cuts of meat, seafood, fresh veggies, cheese and other select ingredients. We make dishes tasty, satisfying and healthy. You may defrost meals a day in advance in the refrigerator. Alternatively you may cook some from frozen. Recyclable, oven save dishes and simple stovetop or microwave warming make dishes such as curries hassle free. A quick bake in the oven brings other dishes to perfection without the addition of ingredients. Delivery Schedule Kuranda, Speewah & Koah - within 1 day Mareeba - within 2 days Cairns - within 3 days Thursday Tasting Lunches $10 for 11 dishes in 3 courses

Reviewed By Pantherboy - Cairns, Australia

I've eaten at this beautiful rainforest hideaway on a number of occasions and it is yet to disappoint! Beef, lamb, chicken, seafood & pasta dishes. Try the Tasmanian salmon, the local beef fillet, the garlic prawns or the calamari in particular. Beautiful bruschetta & the soup of the day is always a treat. There is a sign at the Clohesy River Rd turnoff near the Koah Roadhouse. Follow the signs for about 6km. A beautiful peaceful spot for a leisurely lunch or dinner with fantastic food & wonderful friendly service.

Kuranda Fudge Bar

A little piece of Scotland tucked away in the highlands of the tropics; home to the largest range of Fudge in Australia!

Reviewed By Nigel B

Hidden down the back of the market place is this awesome little place.
Mother and daughter operation who are both equally as passionate as each other about making their exceptional fudge. They're not happy unless you're happy.
Made and created on site the range is awesome and the flavours as as wild as your imagination. They also have an Adults Only range which is rather nice as well.
High recommended

Annabel's Pantry Kurunda

Reviewed By Crysee

I was told that you can’t come to Australia and not eat a pie..their national dish. I’m not a big meat eater but chose the chicken and mushroom pie and LOVED IT!!! Chicken, mushrooms, gravy in pastry..just delicious! My friend really liked her steak pie as well. Highly recommend for a quick bite in Kuranda!

Kuranda Rainforest Coffee

Reviewed By RGSCEW - Melbourne, Australia

After hot air balloon ride in the morning, dropped in here for early shot of caffeine!
We all commented "what great coffee! ". And it seems we are not alone... Other reviewers seem to agree.
Service good. We took them down to the train station and enjoyed the ambience there with the coffee. Excellent. Thanks.
