A local restaurant on the seafront in Palm Cove, Cairns

Are you looking for somewhere to enjoy a deliciously fresh seafood dinner in Palm Cove, Cairns? Or maybe you want to get your night started with some tropical cocktails and sea breezes at our beachfront bar? Whether you’re looking for food, drinks or simply relaxation, The Rising Sun Bar & Bistro never disappoints.

Established in 2010, The Rising Sun Bar & Bistro is a locally operated and family run restaurant that began as a fun side venture for Nu Nu Restaurant owners Nick Holloway and Jason Rowbottom. Since opening its doors on the sunny shores of Palm Cove, the locals have kept coming back to enjoy the kooky 70s décor, delicious, fresh-off-the-boat seafood, and genuine hospitality.

Nick and Jason’s aim was to create a relaxed restaurant that their family and friends (and their family and friends) could enjoy. A place where you can laugh and build lasting memories over stunning pub-style dishes and beer. The Rising Sun Bar & Bistro is run by locals for locals and visitors that simply want good food, good drinks, and a good time.
