Lovely view and good bar staff

Enjoyed our drinks on the deck overlooking the harbour. A lovely spot with good pizzas and friendly efficient staff. Watch out for the birds.

Top location for breakfast. Good food & coffee & better during the day than at night. Great to sit & watch the happenings of the marina pass by whilst enjoying a coffee. We also had pizza for dinner which was also very good, however the restaurant did get a little noisy & very busy at night, hence the service quality... More

We visited twice over Easter. First for take away pizzas which were excellent. We had cocktails in the bar whilst we waited and there is a good choice of cocktails with a different twist on the usual cocktails. The bar staff were very busy and we had to wait for our drinks and clearly they needed my staff but the... More

Great restaurant, with a variety of different options. The Childrens meal had great options including Salmon which is really good compared to many other places who only offers pasta and Pizza. However, there was quite a long wait for family at around 7-8pm. It was definitely worth the wait and we went there twice in a week.

First, we are from Melbourne and so we are spoiled for fantastic food, so the fact that we visited Manta Ray for three nights in a row out of 5 nights on Hamilton Island means that we were thoroughly impressed! The views from the restaurant are stunning! The food was great! The kids could eat free and there was more... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful pizza and matching wine on a very busy night but the food and service was outstanding.

If you want a casual meal this is the best on the Island . We shared a grilled calamari entree ... Very tasty with chilli and salt on the side for you to match to your liking. Then a half and half pizza ... Delicious .. Fresh toppings and very filling. So pleasant sitting on the verandah overlooking the marina.... More

We dined early and were seated in a great spot on the balcony. The kids menu was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Will defiantly return during our stay.
