Palm Cove is a very relaxing town with a variety of good casual restaurants. Nu Nu though is probably the only one that provides quality fine dining that would match major city experiences.
A wonderful atmosphere with direct access and views to the beach - idyllic for a seaside experience.
Choice of tasting menu or a-la-carte although I actually enjoyed the entree options best.
Excellent for breakfast as well.

Situated at the northern end of the beach front, Nu Nu offers inside and outside dining without the road being between where your eating and the beach views.

We had breakfast here. The food was delicious innovative and the service was excellent. Little touches such as starched white napkins and regular refills of ice cold water added to the enjoyment.

Views of blue sky, palm trees and the sea breeze made just sitting at Nu Nu so relaxing.

I had the avocado with olive, lime on sour dough. Loved it.

Only negative were the plates, that had small base and big sides, so made cutting difficult without tipping the plate.

Will go back for dinner!!!

Nu Nu Restaurant has for a long time been one of my favourite places to eat in the Cairns region. I would go well out of my way to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner there.

The setting is fantastic, the staff are incredible and so friendly/ outgoing.

Duck rice... understated on the menu but so tasty.

The price is a bit higher than some other restaurants but to be honest you do get what you pay for and they are so, so consistent at what they do. I’ve not eaten a bad meal here.

Other restaurants come and go but Nu Nu has become a bit of an institution :)

Thank you for all the tasty meals over the past few years :)

My wife and I had lunch here on our last day in Palm Cove. What a great meal sampling a number of tapas style dishes. Special thanks to Michelle who looked after us so well and Nick for taking the time to make our lunch special.
