Absolutely fantastic food and drinks for a decent price. Great location at the Waterfront, right in the city centre with views over the harbour and the arts & crafts market right next door. Good service from friendly staff

Good food and in a nice spot for looking out over the water during the day. Quick service. Prices for some of the food is quite reasonable, some a bit expensive for what it is.

Cheap eats and great coffee. Not to mention their freshly squeezed juices. Opt from local fruit and you can't go wrong.

Whilst on holiday at Iririki Resort we ate a few times at Nambawan Cafe. The menu offers a good range. We particularly enjoyed their salads, pizzas, ice creams and juices. The coffee is excellent, the staff friendly and the location absolutely perfect with fantastic views.
