About Temple of Taste Restaurant
Simple informal and relaxed Temple of Tastes is a Palm Cove restaurant which offers stylish resort dining in a modern understated yet sophisticated setting whether dining inside the restaurant or alfresco on the Terrace.
Very good service from Cedric who was very pleasant and helpful
My wife and I chose the Tastes of Temple degustation menu and were very happy with the taste, quality and presentation of our meal. The only downside was the delay between each course it took three hours for the experience. We did request they speed it up a bit and the last three course came out much quicker. Standout dish was the Pan Fried Herb Gnocchi.
George is fantastic! His knowledge of the menu and recommendations of food and wine were fantastic and much appreciated! Service was also outstanding! Our fave restaurant in Cairns by far! ;-)
My wife and I had the tasting menu which was excellent apart from the dessert which was just super sweet with only 1 texture (soft) Service was polite and friendly. One waiters shirt was completely soaked with sweat- not a great look Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will happily return
We stayed at the resort and dined at the Restaurant for my birthday. Lovely experience, good sized meals and an interesting selection on the menu. Would definately come back someday.
Great service provided from Indy. She had the Perfect balance of explaining food delivered and offering service when needed but not over the top and annoying. The perfect waitress!
George was our highlight
Another great dining experience here at temple of taste. Service amazing and fabulous food. Keep up the great work we will definitely be returning.
Great food, service and atmo
This is the second time coming here. Unfortunately it wasn’t the best. Came here on a Saturday night & they were just understaffed. 2 waiters & a Barman is not enough to run a smooth service. When your charging $150 a head then you expect top service. Very hard to get a drink which is their loss as well as mine & after mains it took so long for the table to be cleared that we just got up & paid up at the bar. Food was great but service let it down & not sure I’d come back after this experience
A nice restaurant and atmosphere but unfortunately the food didn’t live up to expectations. The entree’s and desert were fine, but the snapper was bland and over cooked and the steak was chewy. Service was fine, except the drinks service was slow. Overall the high prices did not match the quality of food and service.
As noted on previous visits, the service was very poor, and generally most inattentive. Whilst the waiting staff were friendly the level of service in no way matched the quality of the food. For example, 2 of the 3 entrees were served without a major ingredient, the broth arriving when we had eaten half of the dry dumplings. Furthermore, vegetables ordered did not arrive with the main courses and were subsequently cancelled. Whilst the staff compensated for these errors by kindly offering deserts, it was most unfortunate that this was necessary.
Extremely challenging environment with the endless tropical rain ahappening. Waiters were visibly dripping wet and under pressure. Restaurant had a full house as Resort Guests had to dine in due to the abysmal weather. Staff handled it well under the circumstances. No mood/background music was evident throughout dinner. However the rain was extremely loud. My companion and I had the most delicious and the most beautifully presented dinner courses. BRAVO Temple of Taste restaurant ! Thank you for a great culinary experience.
Great experience, did not know kangaroo could taste so nice. George was as cool as ever. Service is friendly, attentive but never intrusive. An enjoyable evening
Food was amazing!
Interesting menu with a good selection of entrees and mains, we had a really difficult time choosing. Between the six of us, we tried quite a few dishes, and everything was excellent. Particularly liked the short-rib starter; the fish dishes were also really good. Ample portion size and nice side dishes. Service was friendly and helpful, we were moved away from a large group without asking. Very impressed overall and would happily return.
Service was very slow. Didn’t know about the Accor + deal so took a long time to settle the bill. Food & drink was outstanding, service was very average for the price/location.
Great food really enjoyed the fish . Lovely restaurant will be going back soon .
Ben and his team really looked after us. We had the Degustation Menu with accompanying wines - Excellent Our visitors were really impressed Many thanks Paul
I made an online booking 3 days prior. It was my wifes birthday. I mentioned that, and requested a romantic table setting over looking something beautiful. I knew the setting as I have visited the hotel often. On arrival we discovered the whole outdoor area being used for a wedding. On going inside, the greeting waiter George did not mention anything about the birthday, and seated us in the middle of a plain boring cold room. Even though I received 2 reminders to my booking, I did not receive an email in acknowledgment of mine or my special requests. We left & had a beautiful meal in a romantic setting just around the corner. Not happy Temple of Tastes!!!
Lovely setting, food was good and service was quite good too. The service was a bit slow, might be due to the lack of staff. However, they were friendly & professional even when they were busy. Had a lovely evening.
Fillet steak melted in my mouth.
Beautiful food and drinks and amazing service. The dessert was spectacular.
