Christmas Island Restaurants

Tastes of the Tropics

Christmas Island’s restaurants showcase its rich cultural mix.  From spicy Asian fare to modern western cuisine, you’ll 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.

Take advantage of the islands’ many picnic and barbecue venues, and pack your own hamper from supplies available at the local shops.

Cafe and restaurant options may be limited during Ramadan, Chinese New Year, and Christmas – contact the Visitor Centre for further information as to what cafes/restaurants will be open during your visit.

As most food on Christmas Island is imported the cost for food and meals may be higher than other places to cover the additional transport.
