Had pleasant dinner of Ika Mata, scallops cooked in baby taro, and shrimp in a garlic sauce. Everything was pleasant, with the shrimp being a standout. The Pineapple Delight Cocktail was delightful.

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.
