“Worthy reputation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I had lunch here this afternoon and felt that this place is well worthy of all the recommendations received. We shared four dishes -all good, tasty and with a touch if finesse. We were heading towards desert when we spotted some roasted carrots on the next table and decided to order these instead.Cassava chips to start, 4 plates to share with a side of carrots, 3 glasses of red and a cocktail for $140. Good, professional service without being overbearing is another drawcard for this idyllic seaside restaurant.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Had this restaurant suggested to us by our hotel manager and boy did it not let us down. We had the tasting plate which was honestly one of the best meals we have ever had. The cured Barramundi was up there with one of the best dishes I have ever had. A good selection of wine too which some of the other Palm Cove restaurants are really lacking. The service was fantastic and we will definitely return.

“Fantastic service and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The service is excellent, friendly with a great welcome to guests. The food is designed to be shared (for Sydney-siders, you'll probably think close to Hartsyard or Bloodwood) but the portions are for 1 person (so better to choose like you're ordering for 1). Despite this, the food is incredible. Our most favored qas the lemon soufflé - a must try!

“Our great Anniversary visit to Nu Nu restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed at Palm Cove for 4 nights & last night we dined at Nu Nu restaurant. This was the best restaurant by far out of the 4 we did dine at.
The service was attentive, the timing in food great oh & the food was amazing
We are previous restaurant owners ourselves & understand the process to put such work together. Congratulations to the chefs, blown away- Well done!

“Disapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We heard so much about this restaurant so we were looking forward to our dinner there. We found the service very poor. Not sure if they don't have enough staff on a busy nights. The waiters are running around all the time. There is a feel of rush and not much attention to detail. Even when they describe the dish to you it feels rushed and more like a necessity than a true pleasure and excitement. With a nice location and ambiance this restaurant should think more about the service. The food was ok. I think it's a hit and miss with their menu. I loved the lamb but wasn't impressed with their duck massala curry. The portions are small but nicely presented and if you are sharing you can have a good choice of different flavors.
