Went here for lunch and what a fantastic location! so pretty and peaceful with beautiful views. The service was great and our meals were spot on. I had the burger and it was great. Wish we had of found this earlier in our trip so we could've returned but will definitely go back next time.

Went here for dinner on Sun Mar 23....Walked in and this lovely waitress who referred to all patrons as "My Love" seated me and then my table had ants....She immediately organised another table for me and was so apologetic even though it wasn't her fault! I had the "Chicken Island Stew" which was scrumptious with a blue cocktail. The male... More

We decided on our last night to go to Beaches Restaurant as it was within walking distance from our rental and we were walking. Wished we had gone earlier. I would say that this was the BEST meal that we had on the island. I loved the sand around my feet, the service was just impeccable. My cocktails were to... More

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 stayed at Manuia Beach Resort and Beaches restaurant & bar was really good, Meals were very good, and what we liked the menu changed daily. The staff were excellent and Wednesday night is a real treat with Kura and the hands on Island night, quite different from other Island nights around the island. Happy hour 4pm to 6pm

We had a few meals at this restaurant as we were staying at the resort. The restaurant is right on the beach with a brilliant view of the beach and the cost. Fantastic place to sit and watch the sunset while you sip a cocktail. We had 2 meals and 2 lunches. Every time the meals were great and the... More

Stumbled on to this restaurant. Right on the beach and not o far from our accommodation. Lovely setting adjacent to a beauty pool and with clear view of the sea. Tables set on sand which adds to the feel of a beach holiday. Great food and great staff

We had a nice dinner in this restaurant. The bar doesn't quite look like a bar and the service can lack at times although the staff do mean well and food defiantly made up for any doubts we did have throughout the night. We would go back again =)

This resorts has a nice location and does look good. We did not stay here but used the restaurant while staying on the island. The staff were very unfriendly and not attentive at all even though it was just the 2 of us in the restaurant for lunch. Food was basic small servings and just generally not to an acceptable... More
