“A marvellous place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I loved the food and ambience. It was close to our motel in Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands and we had also had a wonderful day at the markets.

“Excellent service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It is so nice to find a restaurant where staff are actually interested in serving you. Anna was hopping all over the place, but we never had to wait too long for her to serve us. The new girl, although a bit nervous looking was still very smiley and timely in collecting our dishes. My husband highly recommends the Lamb Shank!

“Friendly European atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Enjoyable place for an old-fashioned traditional German / Swiss meal.
Yungaburra does not have a lot of choices to eat so you finish up at Nick's by default but you do not come here for fine dining - enjoy it for what it is.

“Cozy, but pizza should be improved...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I'm sorry not to make a good comment about Nick's restaurant, which is quite brilliant in its look and stands out as best in Yungaburra town. Actually I'm talking about the pizza, not the rest of the meals which seem very lavish and attractive. One night I was there and decided to have a margherita, but unfortunately the dough had not leavened at all, so I had to eat the filling and leave the rest as indigestable. The filling itself is not quite a pizza one but tastes more like a pasta filling. All in all I liked the place which is really lovely, it feels like being in a hut in the Alps (quite familiar to me) and, due to the large windows, a pleasant outside view is provided.

“one of the only restaurants open in the village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We visited Nick's because many other restaurants in the village were closed during our stay. The food is average, with the exception of the ravioli - this was very good.
