Our group was seated next to the window which faced west, looking at the runway. A small plane and a helicopter took off for our viewing pleasure! We all ordered off the special menu. It was delicious! Our service was very good. The wait staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Two of our group took food home. It was... More

I eat at Nu-Cavu often. I love ordering off their specials menu as it's always something different and delicious! The white and red sangria are both good too. The past few times I have gone the service has been a little bit lacking.. waiting a long time for a waitress to come back to check on us.. especially when seated... More

In 2013, I wrote a raving review about this restaurant. It pains me to have to write a poor review of this place because I once really loved it, I feel it has gone down hill, I think it may have a new owner. The food is still great and the location of it being right near the airport is... More

Nu-Cavu is a little different than your typical restaurant. It sits on a fairly remote country road on a small airport. CAVU stands for Ceilings and Visibility Unlimited. This is because the fact that the restaurant has high ceilings and large windows that let you see the small planes landing and taking off. Now as far as the restaurant, we... More

This restaurant is very nice. Has a large high ceiling wooden room with a large fireplace. The tables are dressed beautifully. We go here often. In the summer you can watch the skydivers land, very cool. The food has always been very good and they have great specials weekly. I would definitely recommend!

If you visit here by flying in, its a two minute walk to a lovely restaurant where all of the shrimp dishes are outstanding and the filet mignon is cooked to perfection. However, most people arrive by auto as it is a favorite watering hole for locals. It is situated on the perimeter of the airfield so it is ideal... More

Friends told us about this place. Excellent Italian food, wonderful, friendly service. We've been there twice in one week! Definitely worth the ride.

I had my son's baptism gathering here. Never been before, but went on a recommendation from a friend. I didn't know the setting or interior or even what kind of food they served. It was an excellent recommendation, had a gathering of 15 people and we fit comfortably. The interior is rustic and cozy, and the food was excellent! We... More

The Nu CAVU is a nice restaurant located in the at Kobelt airport. They have a nice bar for just stopping by for a drink and watching a plane land right outside the window. The food and service are also good. The venue is clean and well kept. I would return there to eat.
