Tastes of the Tropics

Christmas Island's restaurants showcase its rich cultural mix.  From spicy Asian fare to modern western cuisine often crafted to highlight local produce - you will find something delicious to suit your taste buds.

Restaurants, cafes and pubs offer a variety of styles, from traditional grills to colonial settings, to laid back, casual pub options.  Many offer the chance to relax over your meal while appreciating stunning outlooks.

You can also take advantage of the island's many picnic and barbeque venues, and pack your own hamper from tasty supplies available at the local shops.

If your visit coincides with a local festival or the night markets join the fun for authentic food and cultural experiences.
