The ideal lunch - on the verandah overlooking the marina, great service and great pizzas. A pizza is quite a lot for lunch, so they'll make one between two half and half.

Very accommodating, pleasant customer service, beautiful view. We ordered lamb n salmon. Didn't have to wait for long, food was ready! Lamb just fell off the bone and salmon was cooked to perfection. Delicious food for reasonable price! Very impressed!

The "kids eat free" option at this restaurant was fantastic. Seared salmon with vegetable & chips was a lovely choice for my son. Our meal, however, was not so fabulous (chicken was VERY dry & salad left a lot to be desired) however the staff more than made up for it. The male staff members couldn't do enough for us... More

We are here on our first night on Hamilton Island, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly, we were seated with a lovely sea view. We ordered and did not have to wait long, our meals came and we found it very tasty and good value. I can recommend Manta Ray.

We dined at the manta ray once whilst staying on Hamilton Island. The food was lovely on the whole, and we would happily have returned. The only issue, (which was resolved) was a chicken souvlaki which i ordered. The chicken seemed to be rolled and grilled with the skin on. I don't like chicken skin, and it was like lumps... More

Must try the pizzas, amazing! You can take away which is what we did. It was nice eating our pizza out on the grass.

Nice food here, hot, plentiful and tasty. Good for a simple pizza and seafood, great views over the marina looking at the variety of boats and the setting sun over Dent Island (if you get there before 6.30). Staff, as with pretty much everywhere on the island, are polite and helpful.

Had many takeaway coffees and muffins from this gorgeous little cafe and sat and stared at the brilliant view - from Catseye Bay around to some of the beautiful Whitsunday Islands - all floating in that incredible, clear blue water!!! You cannot afford to miss this lovely piece of Hamilton Island!!!

We lunched at Manta Ray and thought their food quite good - plenty of menu variety plus good value. As a bonus, this is a great viewing spot for boat traffic coming and going from the harbor.
