BUONISSIMO!

Great introduction to the famous Australian fish Barramundi, excellent authentic pizza prepared by an Italian ‘pizzaiolo’ and attentive & bubbly waitress. Thank you Nick for the cosy night away from the rain.

I am a local and took some friends there. The service was bad, as well as the music. The place was empty yet took forever to get just 4 drinks. The food was tasteless and when we got the bill, we asked for a break down of the bill and got "evils", when we did, they had put a number... More

We never usually eat at Nick's because we are vegan ... BUT they made us vegan pizza. The beer is cold and the menu is GOOD! The staff are super friendly and I think you should have a lunch or dinner here! Just a fun place to eat!

Good menu & wine selection, very good service & meals were hot & very generous. Two courses would have been enough. Prices are ok & the room is interesting, very easy to find next to the platypus viewing platform, recommend

We went there for lunch, six of us ordered six different meals all of us were disappointed. My vegetarian dish looked like a few vegies on a platter chucked in the oven, absolutely no imagination at all. Never again.

Yungaburra has a lot to see and do so we stopped at Nick's for a quick snack but finished with a delightful lunch and great coffee! Good place to start before you do a walk around the town while deciding how long you have for a stay!

Renee Thanks for your review. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I take your views very seriously. Tuesday nights during off season are normally quiet for us, especially on a rainy night like we had this week. Despite having a very small number of bookings we suddenly found ourselves inundated with a much larger than normal number... More

Great authentic swiss food, and nice friendly service. I always go to this place after the visit to Yungaburra Market. They have great pizza as well but we prefer real food. This time, I had Pork Rib and my husband had Todays Special which was 400g T-bone steak. We asked for Rosti on side in stead of chips. Pork was... More
