Lovely outdoor dining area near the hotel pool and the food was excellent! We had the Chicken Supreme which was moist, juicy and very tasty. For dessert, the Mango Brulee with coconut ice cream and wattleseed cake was really nice. One of the best meals we had in Palm Cove and highly recommended.

Fabulous dining experience, service by Ben can’t be faulted.
We opted for the Degustation each and every course was delicious as were the wines.
Have said it before and will say it again, Temple Of Taste is a well kept secret in Palm Cove but I think it’s time to share with all.
Ticks all the boxes for the diner.

Excellent quality food with generous portions. Many gluten free options available. The pork belly and scallops entree was the standout. Wines on the expensive side. Service was very good.

As soon as we walked in we were greeted warmly by the waiter. The restaurant seating is outside under the cover . The ambience is serene and very upmarket. It reminded me a restaurant we dined in Bali. For the entree we ordered gnocchi to share and the texture and the taste of the dish was superb . For the main we both had salmon and it was also very delishious and properly cooked. Oooo and the restaurant that serves complimentary bread before the meal even starts gets 19 points from me. The only little suggestion I will make is for the bread to be house made and whole grain. The bread that we were served tasted as store bought . Otherwise , a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Temple of Tastes was DEVINE. We were blown away by the quality of the food and the timely service from the extremely polite and friendly wait staff. 10/10, we could not fault a thing and had the most enjoyable evening. We've been telling everyone how luscious is was and we will definitely be back!

Just amazing! We opted for the degustation menu & were so glad we did! Every course that arrived were not only tasty but presented perfectly. Ben- our waiter had knowledge, explained every course on arrival and made sure we always had water or a drink on the table. We’re so glad we booked dinner here, no doubt we will be back.

Our second ‘first table’ at Temple of Tastes, very happy with service and food. Would like a couple more mains vegetarian/vegan options on the menu (rather than having to ask) since there is only gnocchi...but the gnocchi was very tasty and beautifully presented.

After a not so perfect dining experience a few days prior, we reluctantly tried again as we were staying at the resort and it was just so convenient. Pleased to say we thoroughly enjoyed this dinner, with good food and wine. We appreciated the complimentary bread rolls, and our mains were lovely, just could have done with some more vegetables to add to the few on the plate.

We absolutely loved our dinner @ Temple of Tastes where we try and dine often as it is our fave restaurant in Cairns! Now that we have found First Table we will be going even more often and telling all of our friends! Love the idea of dining earlier cheaper especially as we have kids! Thank you First Table! Love your work!

We enjoyed our dining experience with friends. We ordered pulled beef, pork belly and duck dumplings for entree - all were delicious. For main we had sirloin and rib eye steaks and seared tuna - again 10/10. We finished with dessert sharing plates which satisfied our sweet tooth without being overwhelmingly sweet. Flawless service and fingerlicking good foods. Fine dining which will leave your belly full.
