My husband and I went there for dinner to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Spectacular!!! The food was amazing, fresh, vibrant, flavors abounded. Service was excellent. Would highly recommend for that very special occasion or just a wonderful meal experience.

Sorry. I have ruined the surprise, the only thing going for NuNu is the aspect. My wife and I dined here for our anniversary, and having read reviews here were really looking forward to the experience. We were seated in caravan style seating, uncomfortable bench on one side and uncomfortable chair on the other. We were offered no other option,... More

Tastebuds beware you are about to go into overdrive. Tasting plates, fabulous starters, glorious mains, enchanting desserts and a wine list so extensive even the most discerning could surely find a bottle to love. All this with a view of the beach through the swaying palms. There are many reviews of this restaurant and it appears you either get it,... More

It's quite a while since we went here. It's good, but could be better. The location, the ambience, and especially the customer service is first class; but the food is not. My wife tried the "belly pork curry," and it was really poor, she left most of it, belly pork is fatty, but this was especially so, it was "fat... More

we indulged in the 5 course taster menu, the staff were excellent with service being of the best/highest quality in comparison to all the restaurants we visited on the palm cove strip. Although pretty pricey it was definitely worth the money spent on a delicious meal!

The food is simply dreadful. The Asian bun is a lump of paste with some ground meat inside. Not a hint of greenery that might have lifted its lacklustre flavour and appearance. The raw tuna was equally a disaster - just a thin (I mean see-through thin) slices of tuna over - get this - croutons, black olives and some... More

Wow! This is a must do dining experience. Nick Holloway and his team are genius at creating spectacular food. Extensive wine list, stunning views and great friendly service. Loved every tasty morsel! I want to give this 6 out of 5!

This was my big night out - on my own - in Palm Cove and so it seemed for everyone else on a busy Saturday night (in low season). I think this is the only truly beachfront restaurant in Palm Cove and so was replete with couples making smoochy eyes at each other under the Survivor-esque flaming torches. Ugh. Anyway,... More

Overpriced mean cuisine. Good fresh produce however AUD5.50 per oyster is above average even for a good, tho small, rock oyster. Ditto appetiser of minced quail, served with limp lettuce cups, mostly broken, & a serving of such small quantity, it was a wonder the kitchen bothered to send it out. Hence I didn't bother with an attempt of another... More
