Great atmosphere with clean surroundings, food was slightly up market and this reflected in the price. Had a good selection of wines and beers.

I really enjoyed the Kikau Hut. I loved the cozy atmosphere, the beautiful landscaping, the service, and the food. Although I didn’t try it, they always have a special potato dish daily. Cute.

A small intimate restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere, local art, beautiful gardens combined with excellent service give it a special ambiance for all diners. European food with island flair, Coeliac Friendly, gluten free and vegetarian options along with a children's menu and free transfers by arrangement make Kikau Hut special. We are wheelchair accessible also.
