Fish and Chips and a blue curacao cocktail, Great open air place to dine and sit out on the ocean. The food was good quality and served in a timely manner. Would... More

Came here for dinner and ordered some drinks and just a couple of mains. Drinks eventually turned up and then the wait for dinner started. Sure you are on island time but this was the longest island time i have had. Got out meals about an hour after ordering them and they were very good so worth the wait. However... More

We stayed at the Crown Beach Resort for 8 nights and had the most amazing lunches and dinners at Oceans Restaurant. Definite value for money and the best meals on the island. The cocktail list was impressive and we recommend sharing a goldfish bowl cocktail on a sun lounger by the beach. Gorgeous ... take me back!!!

We came with a recommendation from a lovely Australian couple who were staying at the resort for the seafood platter for two. Boy, were we ever satisfied! It was fantastic! The restaraunt was set on a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunsets. So romantic! The service was very friendly and accommodating. The seafood platter was huge with great variety. It was... More

Enjoyed an evening of cocktails and dinner here so much that we went back for a second night. Cocktails were great, $13 each (between 4.30 and 6.30 - $15 otherwise). Entrees, mains and desserts were awesome and well priced for the lovely food that it was. Atmosphere was gorgeous, right on the beach with dinner set up in the garden... More

We stayed at this resort so I can say wonderful fresh breakfasts every day with lots of choice to suit everyone. We tried everything over the week but our fave was the fresh fruit followed by the poached eggs. Service was always good and they would always bring out extra food if needed. For lunch a couple of times, had... More

We enjoyed the Sunday Roast they have here a couple of times. The food is lovely and the setting and service is also good. The food was good quality and we thought it was tasty and nicely presented.
