We were picked up and dropped off at our accommodation and serviced with a lovely meal while at the restaurant. Very friendly, helpful staff.

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.

Had dinner here with my husband. Good range of meals available. Seafood was delicious. A guy was playing the guitar and singing in the background. Whilst it was enjoyable, it was a bit loud and we had to shout to hear each other. Very reasonably...More

What a great restaurant. The service and food was great. So was Tani and Rose with their live music. Went twice while we stayed at The Sunset Resort for nine days. Would recommend this place for a meal or two.

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.
