“New Year's Eve dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful NYE dinner at Nick's last night. Our son Terry who lives in Mareeba took us there. The food, service and entertainment was the best. The restaurant decor (very Swiss/Italian/Aussie) was amazing, so many items adorning the restaurant was un-believable.

We look forward to our next trip to Mareeba when we will again dine at Nick's

“Lovely food in nice atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Nick provides a diverse range of choices to suit any one. Prices vary and are affordable, most around $30- but the pizzas are cheaper. I ordered a spaghetti (medium) which was delicious.
Staff were friendly. Nick started playing his accordion but unfortunately it was about 9.30pm & we were about to leave. This added some fun to the night as a family with youngish children donned hats & played along with Nick (albeit without any rhythm, but this was fun!).
Would go again. Meals were all tasty & well presented.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We ate all different sorts of Pizzas - all were excellent. The waitress was from Italy, so there was some authentic touch too.

“Yummy Pizza, european standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Somewhere between platypus viewing & nighttime canoing, we dropped in here for a pizza. It was a special night to celebrate their 27 year anniversary, so it was a choice of a la carte pizza or a buffet. Though the buffet certainly proved that they know their stuff on mid-European food (sauerkraut with pork knuckle, spaetzli, roast pork, roesti, various sausages etc), we to went the pizza option and enjoyed fine crust with generous toppings. Two large pizzas were the perfect size for 2 adults & 2 kids, but we found the cajun chicken salad was not particulary good or good value, and in the end we should have just gotten the garden salad. For a casual meal though, it worked out perfect, and I might even be tempted to drop in for a bratwurst & roesti the next time around.....

“Delicious food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were visiting Yungaburra for one night and decided to check out Nick's because the local pub was closed!

Our server greeted us enthusiastically, and gave fantastic service throughout our evening. We were very impressed by our entree, an 'organic trio' of bread, fresh olives, chilli butter and pesto. This plate was amazing. I never take photos of my food, but this time I had to!

My boyfriend ordered Spaghetti Bolognese and I ordered Ravioli Boscaiola, and both were wonderful. Mine was VERY creamy and rich, and I struggled to get through it, but I did, and it was fantastic :) His was one of the best bolognese either of us has ever tasted, and he struggled to finish it - Both of us only got the medium size.

So glad we went to Nick's :D
Including wine, beer, entree and mains, our bill was about $70
