Nikau Restaurant & Lounge Bar

The Nikau Restaurant offers casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere and the bar — complete with large screen TV — is an ideal place to catch up with friends to unwind before and after dinner.

Nikau Restaurant is open for a café style breakfast 7 days from 7am - 9.30am.

The hotel reserves the right to change this to a buffet style breakfast during high occupancy periods.

Nikau Restaurant & Bar is serving a classic pub style menu seven days a week 5:30pm - 8:30pm.

We are now offering a Nikau Experience menu Thursday to Saturday. This menu has been carefully put together by our Head Chef Zeyn Buksh. The inspiration behind this menu combines Zeyn extensive travel & a celebration of local produce in the Far North.
