Romantic Dinner - Last night of Honeymoon

We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend our last dinner on Raro. We stayed at Crown Beach and for the whole time we stayed there, we kept putting it off for our last night. The service was excellent. The waitresses are very polite. I ordered spaghetti with seafood in cream sauce and my... read more

Reasonable selection on the menu and great quality ingredients. Service was a bit slow and the medium rare steak came out well done. There was no hesitation in correcting the problem however it took more than 30 minutes for the new meal to come out by which time, my partner had finished their meal. The meals were cooked well but... More

The food has always been of a high standard whenever we eat here, having visited the island annually for the last 5 years. We had the lamb ribs and and fish with roast veges and shrimp risotto, both were delicious.

I returned to the Windjammer Restaurant looking forward to another great Italian meal. To my disappointment, I was told that Carlos, the Italian chef, no longer worked there. I ordered the lasagne hoping that the cooks had learned from Carlos how to prepare his recipes. Unfortunately, the pasta was not al dente. It was over cooked and mushy. The flavor... More

Nice meal - fairly quiet because Centennial Celebrations in town centre so atmosphere a bit muted. Small menu but good range of food - good range of wine

I read a lot of great reviews and booked in advance as we did not want to miss out dining here. The Crown resort appears to be a beautiful resort, and the restaurant is top class fine dining. Everything is high quality, excellent customer service and delicious food. My toddler fell in love with his waitress she was so nice.... More

We tried the Wind Jammer restaurant due to a recommendation and we weren't disappointed! For entrée we ordered the Caesar Salad to share. We asked to have chicken as well as bacon, as you could chose chicken, bacon or prawns(?). I order and make Caesar salads a lot and this was one of the best I'd eaten. For main I... More
