The Great Barrier Reef's Acclaimed Restaurant & Bar


Orpheus Island is a food lover’s destination. Awarded a Chef’s Hat in the 2019 Australian Good Food Guide, enjoy ‘chef hatted’ restaurant meals at every course.

On arrival guests will meet with our Executive Chef to discuss their taste preferences and dietary requirements.

Each meal is an event within itself, with gourmet breakfasts, shared tapas style lunches and memorable degustation dinners.

Our team of chefs prepare meals inspired by the natural surroundings using the freshest seasonal produce sourced from the Island’s own vegetable garden and from surrounding regions. Fresh prawns, Moreton Bay bugs and tropical rock lobsters are just some of local delicacies sourced from local fisherman or suppliers.


The Orpheus breakfast is a quintessential à la carte menu starting at 8am, guests can make their way at leisure and choose from the menu. Paired with fresh juice or coffee, breakfast is laid-back and a taste of what real island life is all about, with fresh seasonal produce from the garden to your plate.
