We've dined at Nu Nu a couple of times now, and not been disappointed by the food or service. We generally go there to celebrate a special occasion, so the price isn't at the forefront of our minds. The Waitstaff are top notch, and their recommendations are generally spot-on!
Would recommend without any hesitation!

Look this is a reasonable restaurant. The food is good and the service is fine but their prices are over the top, There are many other restaurants in this area that provide equally as nice food at a fraction of the cost.

The food was just okay and the entree was ridiculously small. But any redeeming factor from the food just pales to their really awful service. I wish they are more attentive to the diners.

Sunday brunch with friends in Palm Cove - Nunu really hit the spot. It was a beautiful morning in Palm Cove, the water still with a faint breeze. Our table at the front of the restaurant allowed us all to take in the beautiful day unfolding on the water.

We ordered a mixture of breakfasts between the 5 of us - the obligatory bacon and egg combos for a few, pancake stacks and mushroom tart.

The meals were well received by all - the bacon beautiful and crispy, the eggs perfectly poached and the roast tomatoes an absolute flavour explosion. The tart was described as being divine. The pancake stack (with bananas and coconut ice cream) though said to be good seemed to get the least "mmmmmms" of all the meals and perhaps was missing the wow factor that the others enjoyed.

The fruit mixes with alluring names were delicious but a tad on the expensive side.

Service was friendly and with a smile.

Only complaint - they weren't able to do large, or mugs, of coffee as the larger cups were not available. The coffee was very good though.

This place is great - there are some exciting breakfast combinations. Next time I'll be a little more adventurous and try one of the more exciting options.

Yumm. Will be back.

We had breakfast here on a Sunday and had only wished we could have stayed until the next weekend to do it again (they only do breakfast on weekends). The staff are fabulous and the meals were just beautiful. Coffee was great (I ordered a second). Will absolutely go back.
