We didn't want the full 3 course dining experience after 2 days of lots of eating, so chose this more casual pizza style restaurant. The location, next to the marina, was great, the pizza and Greek salad we ordered was plenty. Wait staff were pleasant and the price was great!

The staff at Manta Ray are all very inviting and friendly. Our waitress Chanelle was nice and professional and the pizzas were filling and tasty. Also, try the Saganaki because that was pretty good too. Manta Ray provides a nice outdoor atmosphere with a nice view over the marina.

We were seated in the courtyard of the restaurant, it was lounge style seating and surrounded by plants, felt like I was sitting it someone's own courtyard, it was so relaxing. Ordered the Greek souvlaki plate and a Mediterranean pizza to share between 3 and was more than enough. The flavours were fantastic and fresh. The pizza was loaded, no... More

The first visit, four of us enjoyed a light lunch at Manta Ray. We were greeted with a warm and genuine smile and escorted to a lovely table overlooking the water. All we wanted was a pizza, salad and coffee which we all concurred was delicious. Two of us remained on the island and visited Manta Ray twice more for... More

As a family we dined only once at Manta Rays and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the Pizzas were great. Most important the staff were amazingly polite and friendly. That went for every staff member even those cooking were happy to smile and recognise you as you walked past. Our kids (teenagers) loved walking to Manta Rays each night for... More

As the water twinkled under the beaming Queensland sun, the boats in the marina gently bobbing with a tropical breeze, the setting from the deck at Manta Ray couldn't have been more perfectly tranquil. Craving an iced chocolate, I also indulged in a slice of Oreo Cheesecake. Elegantly presented the cheesecake was a feast for the senses. It looked too... More
