I have always wanted to go to Nu Nu’s - so yesterday we stopped in for lunch. Knowing that it had ‘one hat’ my expectations of food and service was high. The service was ok - but staff started clearing plates whilst 2 of the...More

We first dined at Nu Nu when it was located in front of Beach Club -- it was great then. A few years ago the restaurant relocated to the southern end of Palm Cove with an exquisite, unimpeded view through the palms to the beach....More

We enjoyed our brekkie here as guest at Alamanda. Food was really lovely and service was friendly. I would book again for Hubby and I but not the kids they dont really appreciate it for the price.

Service was a little slow which was a shame, but all wait staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is beautiful, with a lovely view, however it does get cold outside, so unless it's a warm night I suggest to ask for an inside seat....More
