“JUST GREAT!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We chose the degustation menu and every course was a fantastic taste sensation with great variety and contrasts. The staff were so attentive, helpful and described every dish perfectly. The salad of young coconut, shaved palm hearts and melon was beautiful. The dessert of coconut snow egg divine. We didn't want the meal to end and can't wait to return.

“Best restaurant in FN Qld!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

It's five years since we last visited Palm Cove, and it is a testament to NuNu that it is still around and thrilled us as much as the first time we went there. We love how they have adapted their menu, with the variety of sharing plates. The food, ambience and service is all special, and what's more it is by no means the priciest restaurant in the area. We booked on the spot to go back the next night!

“Gavin worked us a treat!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Were looked after by Gavin & he did his job beautifully. Had us drinking $$$ French wine but his charm was overpowering. And the food was amazing. He recommended their unique lemon bread & red emperor taster - both were superb. And the rest of our meals were at the same exceptional standard. NuNu would compete very well in the Sydney/Melbourne restaurant scene as their food is amazing. Must do whilst in Palm Cove

“Really great food and lovely, friendly waitresses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

4 of us had a gorgeous long lunch here while we were on holiday in Port Douglas, just down the road. The waitresses (one ex-Kiwi and one from Germany) were helpful and lovely and didn't hurry us at all. We started with the lemon bread as recommended and then went on to eat and share many other small dishes. Nu nu is set-up to be tapas-like food, so it is easy to share with someone else. The portion sizes are quite small but very tasty. My dessert, which was a really delicious salted peanut caramel ball coated in crunchy chocolate did not get shared! Fabulous food and a great dining experience.
