My partner and I ate here last night, it was a decision to have the 7 course meal with matching wines. On arrival we sat outside with a thunderstorm and lightning in the background, the sound of the ocean and fairy lights made for a great set up and mood setter. There were a few bugs flying around and the... More

We visit Cairns every year and this time we wanted to treat ourselves to an indulgent, relaxing lunch at NuNu's. Easy online booking, accommodating & friendly service (colouring in for the kids and great kids menu). The food is extraordinary. Loved the coral trout! We will definitely be back next year. Not for the budget conscious. Definitely for those who... More

Great atmosphere, open with the sea breeze. Wait staff was excellent. Food was good, just different than what we were used too.

Arrived at Nunu around 7.15pm and was greeted by one of the owners. The night stayed on that high for the next 2 hours whilst we enjoyed the 7 coarse tasting menu. Thanks once again Nick & Jason.

Dined here the other night. The good points are the absolute beachfront location - dining overlooking the beach/water views and the food is quite good - flavours of a decent above grade standard. Dined at Watergate at Port Douglas a few weeks back and whilst not a beachfront location by comparison, the main dinner dishes were $10 cheaper and fared... More

5 star food 5 star location. We had breakfast here this morning and it was as good as anywhere I have ever eaten, if not better. Being able to eat 10m from the beach under the shade of the palm trees while watching the sun rise was sublime. Thoroughly reccommended

Today my husband and I dined at NuNu for Yum Cha to celebrate Chinese New Year. The service was excellent and the food and matching wines were outstanding. Every course was full of flavour and the wines perfectly matched. The staff were all very friendly and professional. Overall a wonderful dining experience.

Beautiful views of Palm Cove beach from the restaurant and deck. Staff very friendly and helpful. We chose the juice of the day which was freshly juiced pineapple and apple. Delicious. I chose pancakes with salted caramel, banana and coconut. Yummmmy. Husband had the muesli which was filled with nuts, mango and coconut. I tried it and it was fantastic.... More
