I debated whether this was a 5 rating, but when I considered the setting, the service (thank you Zoe and others), the wine list and the food I decided it was. Slightly disappointed in the "raw yellow fin tuna" - because I couldn't really find a lot of tuna or octopus, and a bit concerned that prawns were becoming scarce... More

Beautiful location, excellent service, good coffee but why are the coffee cups so small? There is a kind of meanness about this. Surrounding cafes serve a standard cup but at Nu Nu's is is like a baby cappuccino .

Sadly the venue had moved and menu had changed. Couldn't find anything we liked and decided to try another venue .. Very pricey also for limited selection .. Not... More

Every visit to this restaurant had been above average. Today sadly was not one of them. Not due to quality of food but lack of experience by wait staff. Lack of experience in an order of the pan fried fish with side order of hand cut chips & salad, produced the coral trout firstly combined with the side orders. When... More

Nu Nu is a fine food restaurant which charges high prices for good quality food. It jus probably the best on offer in Palm Cove but is not comparable to top end restaurants in a city like Melbourne. Like many Far North Queensland p resort areas the local restaurants rio not offer anyone but meat eaters a reasonable range to... More

Previous visits have left me absolutely delighted with the food and service with the food so delicious, with out of this world dishes showcasing the best of local produce. Alas, on this occasion, the food was just..... Bland. Really lacklustre. Curious really, I don't understand how it could lose its wow factor within one month of the previous visit. My... More
