Pleasant lunch on the marina, without a doubt one of the best restaurants pony the island,. James customer service was exceptional, a quality hard to find within Australia, his attention to detail ranks amongst the best Australian establishments have to offer, personal, attentive without being overbearing and anticipating all our requirements, a quality hard to find.

And great vibe and location. Hamilton Island is expensive and this restaurant offers exceedingly good value food with a good range of dishes. It's good simple Mediterranean food well priced and well cooked. It's a lively buzzing place...strongly recommend They don't take bookings so.go with an expectation of a drink at the bar while you wait.

The menu is not exstensive but there was something for everybody. The food was very good, the service was friendly and very helpful. Sitting looking at the water was very relaxing. A lot of family`s ate here. It is a little expensive but what isn`t on the Island.

Had lunch and dinner at this restaurant. The restaurant is very popular and busy and at dinner we had to wait until a table became available. Once a table was free we had to wait some time before the waitress came to take our order. Once orders were placed the food came fairly quickly. They make the most fabulous Greek... More

Manta Ray is an institution in Hamilton Island. Good pizzas and always popular. You can't book a table - so get there early to avoid the crowds and try to get a table on the veranda - although the garden is nice too.

Very busy place (particularly with the visiting Chinese and Japanese with attendant children on the night we were there) but it was pleasant enough. Friendly staff but has a limited menu plus pizzas. My Hawaiian pizza was dry and I left part of it as a result. Steak was fine for my companion. We didn't stay for dessert as the... More

This is the type of restaurant that makes you realize how fortunate you are - eating tasty pizza on the water with an amazing view really can't be beat. Yes, it's overpriced. Tell me something on this island that isn't expensive...it's not like they're growing everything they need to produce the food they serve. We didn't eat anything but the... More
