There are three must-visit places in Far North Queensland: the reef, the Daintree Rainforest and Nu Nu. Located in the prettiest pocket of Palm Cove, this casual but upmarket restaurant partly resembles those heritage-listed destinations in that it offers a true and magical sense of place. The only difference is it's on a plate (and what good-looking plates they are). You could start and finish in the titbit section of the menu, with dishes such as the crisp chilli salt pork ribs, but then you'd miss the sophisticated massaman curry of pork belly with palm heart and coconut salad. Here it's more a paste than a curry, and rich and complex. Finish with a tropical full stop - the coconut snow egg with black sticky rice, passionfruit ice-cream and spiced pineapple is worth the calories. Staff are unnecessarily hurried at times, but don't fret; just distract yourself with the extensive and thoroughly enjoyable wine list - there's lots there to like.
