Absolutely faultless, this was our first time at Ochre and definitely will not be our last. Food, service, atmosphere, and location were all perfect.

It was interesting food, we ordered all the australian fauna meats ( crocodile, emu, kangaroo, wallaby). We ordered the platters to share and the taste was quite unimpressive. If I went again I would stick to the normal dishes and probably eat the usual meats and seafood instead.

Excellent bush food and unique flavours that make it an intersting treat

Fantastic service and good food. We went for NYE dinner so spent more than we usually would have but it was still excellent value for money.

The variety of Australian cuisine was amazing. The Australian Antipasto is a must.

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
