We had the most amazing dinner at Nunu. The food was amazing, service was fantastic and the location is just stunning, set right on the beach. We chose the 4 course tasting menu and was not disappointed.

The location, directly on the beach, is divine. The crockery is charming, rustic stoneware. The menu is imaginative. Lovely breakfast, love the house made preserves with great sourdough toast. The cider donuts with passionfruit curd are only available until 11.00 am, Please extend their availability, I'd have them with coffee or for dessert at any time. This restaurant would be... More

We had a lovely meal here last night. My partner is a local from Cairns, I'm technically a tourist, visiting the area every month or two... we thought that the prices were reasonable considering the attention to detail and the depth of flavour in each dish. We had a variety of dishes...titbits, entrees, main and a side dish - all... More

We visited this place recommend by friend. They have an extensive wine list in which is to much for the manager to know let alone the staff. They try very hard to be fine dining especially with the prices. Food was ok but not good enough to go back. We were a tad shocked and put off our meal after... More

The prices are outrageous, the food not that special, had to order the salad to go with the overpriced meat and the service was lousy. Remember that locals come to eat as well. What does Nu Nu stand for???The mind boggles Stop ripping people off and you might get a wholesome following of customers who live here, however I won't... More

My wife and I ate here with another couple. The table overlooked the beach, the staff was delightful and the food outstanding. We all ordered different dinners - and shared. Everything was well prepared and quite enjoyable. Give it a try.

After flying into Cairns, we decided to stop and Palm Cove and "check it out" on our way to Port Douglas. We had lunch at Nu Nu restaurant and it was the perfect way to have our first "I'm on holidays cocktail"! The food was varied and delightful and we shared ribs, lemon bread, cured barramundi, tomato salad, sichuan eggplant... More

The staff were really lovely. The food was also really good. Obviously. You don't need to know this from me. They gave me a cardigan!!!! Because it's a bit windy. Michael and Hayley are the best!!!!

With uninterrupted views of the beach and the sea the location is without equal! We found the menu a little difficult to read and nearly didn't bother going in but we were glad we did. We enjoyed high quality ingredients skilfully prepared into dishes that I'd not seen before but were delicious. Definitely worth a visit for a special occasion.
