Hidden up a driveway in Crown Beach resort, you need to book as is quite small but just off the lagoon and the Sun sets over the beach in view from the seating area. Food really excellent, staff very friendly, good wine and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended. Nothing to dislike!!

Food didn't make us sick which was good but it did not... More

The Crown's Ocean Restaurant is set within stunning gardens amongst this beautiful resort. The jewel being the food and service - beautiful, well presented and tasty cuisine that was value for money. Well worth a visit - we strolled here from another resort.

We went by chance (saw the ad in the paper) for the Island feast/dance/drum show - and went and had a look then booked immediately for the following night. It was SO good---the Oceans restaurant where it was held was great - staff where brilliant with amazing service too. The "Island Feast" although smallish with selections was really scummy and...
