This place is only a short walk from the Edgewater Resort. It has a great atmosphere; there were 12 of us and we all had a great meal. There was a suttle back ground music which made the whole meal experience just great.

The menu was reasonable, if limited and portions were generous. Service was disappointing - few smiles in evidence. Our bill was brought before the dessert arrived, which I find very offensive. No excuse for bad manners! Clientele was foreign. Parking was available.

A great menu with fresh, delicious food. A local duo of musicians in the background made a night out with friends really enjoyable. PS- LEAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT OR YOU’LL BE SORRY.

This place serves some great food. Try the fried wontons as a sweet dish, they are worth it. Staff is very helpful and the ambience is ideal for a lovely evening.

A small intimate restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere, local art, beautiful gardens combined with excellent service give it a special ambiance for all diners. European food with island flair, Coeliac Friendly, gluten free and vegetarian options along with a children's menu and free transfers by arrangement make Kikau Hut special. We are wheelchair accessible also.
