This was a let down in terms of food. Overpriced and under delivered. Staff were friendly and the setting with a sand floor, and right next to an infinity pool and the sea was amazing.

We called into Manuia Beach Boutique Hotel for lunch as we wanted to see how the resort had changed. The restaurant "Right On The Beach" looked just the same as we remembered, better really because the furniture was new and much nicer. We ordered fruit cocktails first then lunch and coffees and were very impressed. It's hard to find a... More

The best location fabulous " on the beach" Food fell slightly short of matching the location. Felt rushed to order and narrow menu that had 3 things "sold out" . Some blackboard specials added to choice. Pressured to finish despite a relaxed 7.15pm booking time. Asked to order desert whilst two of party still finishing mains.

Like other reviews: the setting was lovely, the service shambolic and the food very average. Several of our group ordered tuna which came out so over-cooked that it could have been fish fingers. We waited ages to order dessert and then were told that it would be at least 45 minutes before it could be served - the menu was... More

We had been to this restaurant before (2009) and had a good experience so returned but were let down. The setting is really beautiful and some of our food was ok but one of our party ordered the crumbed calamari as a starter. What came out was deep fried squid rings, not bad if you are at a pub or...

We went here for sunset cocktails at happy hour and then dinner in the restaurant. It was a great setting with a deck built right on the beach next to the pool and a fantastic sunset view. however the drink service at happy hour was dreadful- very slow and inattentive. The waitress got my drink order wrong, only discovered when... More
