Pethers Rainforest Restaurant is proud of its reputation as one of south east Queensland's most romantic dining experiences. Our intimate restaurant is set around a massive open sided and elevated fire place and overlooks pristine rainforest. Our chef pro
Simply superb on all levels!We were only there for one night, but would have gladly stayed on longer. The rainforest environment is instantly impressive.The large windows in the treehouse are in perfect proportion to the room and balcony, which I guess would be close to 80m2!The fireplace was very efficient with its low/medium/high settings. The bottle of French champagne was chilled as requested! The dressing gown, complementary slippers and eye shades were much appreciated! The king sized bed was very comfortable too.Unfortunately the restaurant is only open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, so we made-do with an OK Italian meal in Main Street.Thank you to Chris and everyone else at Pethers.Highly recommended!Dear Warren D, Thank you kindly for your lovely review of our treehouses and restaurant. It is so lovely to hear you found it impressive and comfortable! I do hope we can welcome you back to Pethers in the near future, perhaps for a longer stay to be able to enjoy more of Tamborine Mountains varied attractions! Warmest regards,Shona PhilpsGeneral Manager

Dine in the shade of tall trees by day and lantern-lit gardens by night and enjoy a new enticing contemporary menu of delectable seasonal dishes. Located within the 112 hectares of Thunderbird Park, which is also the home of Cedar Creek Lodges - well know
We absolutely loved our time here last weekend. Truly, it was one of the loveliest places we have dined at in quite some time.The restaurant has a beautiful setting, lots of candles and lamps around (as well as a combustion fire in the restaurant) lovely pieces of art and overlooking the lush greenery outside.It was so wonderful to have dinner in a restaurant and be able to hear your companions talking - so much more peaceful than overcrowded places with TVs or music blaring, concrete floors and lots of hard surfaces where the noise tends to bounce around.The food was outstanding. We had several share plates between the 3 of us and loved them all - particularly the crispy pork belly and the Barramundi with Fetta and Macadamia nuts. Even the salad was delicious. Our waitress was welcoming and very kind and attentive. The only problem we had was finding this place - it was very dark when we were driving down there and the signage isn't great. Just know that it is definitely worth the effort to get there!When we were looking for a special restaurant to celebrate my aunt's birthday, another particular restaurant in town kept being mentioned. Well, we also went to the other restaurant and I have to say that the Rainforest Restaurant was so much better in every way - food, service, ambience. No doubt about it, THIS is the best restaurant in town. Thanks to everyone at the Rainforest Restaurant for a really wonderful evening, we appreciate all your efforts - it was an outstanding experience.Thank you for your feedback Tracy - it is definitely appreciated. When we opened our Rainforest Restaurant in late 2017, it was a little daunting, especially with the opening hours from Thursday lunch through to Sunday lunch, with dinners in between. So many people were used to having only casual food from our Terrace Kiosk, which serves really tasty deli fast food. However, we felt it would be great to have another option for our guests, day visitors and locals. This we now have with the Rainforest Restaurant providing a relaxed ambience surrounded by rainforest gardens, delicious food and a wine list that promotes local wines, along with New Zealand and Australian celebrated wineries. We hope to see you again, Tracy, in the not too distant future to give us your feedback on the new additions to our menu!

You are rather spoilt for choice when it comes to cafes and restaurants in this area. The Monkey Tree Restaurant is unassuming but serves up a great bistro meal. The lemon pepper calamari was outstanding as was the service and the atmosphere. The meals were served quickly but you were under no rush. Great coffee finished off a relaxed and enjoyable lunch.
