    Great food, lovely setting although the retreat is looking ‘a bit tired’. Prices were very affordable. Staff were lovely although some of our wait staff were a ‘little sleepy’.

    I booked for breakfast after receiving at least 20 emails advising me to do so. I was there 15 minutes after opening, ordered a coffee and some eggs and toast. Coffee came quickly but waited 45 minutes for the eggs that never came. Had to get to work so left. People who ordered after me had their meals so not sure what happened.

    A very nice special of barramundi. The restaurant was very quiet and we ate outside - really lovely (although a little dark to read the menu!). Service was prompt. Dessert was lovely (lime panacotta). The one negative was that the potato wedges were soggy/limp.

    Thursday night is pizza night - pizza and nothing else. We were booked on a 7pm excursion (to meet at 6.55pm) and ordered two pizzas at 5.45pm. They arrived at 6.50pm (after questioning where they were and being told they were in the oven and would be ready very soon at 6.30pm). The pizzas were delicious, including being able to cater for a vegan. But it was impossible to really enjoy them in the 5 mins available. They were good for lunch the next day (cold). Would I recommend The Cassowary? If you go on a Thursday night, allow plenty of time (several other people had the same experience that night).

    Wednesday is pasta night - and only pasta. There was very limited choice, particularly as one of the party was eating lactose free. The restaurant was understaffed and we needed to go in search of a wait person to see what had happened to our order. When it came, the food was very average - overcooked pasta and a sauce that seemed to be a puree of vegetables that had been cooking for a while. The meal was not expensive - but then quite expensive for what it was.

    Quality of the food: Ordered the Slow Cooked Belly for our entre which was delicious. Great selection of meat (kangaroo, steak, crocodile) and seafood (barramundi, prawns) and they were all flavoursome. The accompanying sauces really complemented the meats. Would recommend this dish. Service: Staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. Knowledgeable about the wine selection. Interior and exterior design: Ambience: Relaxing intimate atmosphere set by the soft glow of the artificial tea lights. High ceilings and natural timbers were attractive. Spacing between tables was adequate. Music volume was set accordingly to enable ease of conversation for diners. Cleanliness: Well-maintained. Value for money: Satisfied with the food pricing and the platter was well worth its value. The bottle of Elephant in the Room Pinot Noir was just a tad bit pricey though.

    Food was great, really well cooked and very fresh tasting foo, considering how remote the location is. Staff are excellent, very accomodating and patient. Like all dining locations in the top end, they struggle with staffing levels so dont expect a big city quick dine and back out the door, you need to take your time and relax, enjoy the ambience and make a great night out of it.
