Unable to agree with other reviews. Thought the pizzas at $28 each were totally overpriced and the so called garlic bread was so bad it was not edible. It was a garlic soaked pizza base under cooked. We did not eat in but just had take away. Would not recommend at all.

Great service, fantastic views of the marina. Pizzas a bit of a let down as they were far too oily and the base was under cooked. Perhaps just an off night but was fairly disappointed

Enjoyed our lunch thoroughly but we melted in the sun & humidity so i'd suggest sitting out of the sun if possible. They serve Breakfast,lunch & dinner.

Came here for lunch based on menu selection. Food was sensational, service was exceptional - made us feel like royalty. Atmosphere 1st class. Perfect experience so came back for dinner same night. Couldn't believe it - the experience was even more perfect. Thank you to Deeray and staff for a 1st class experience - nothing we experienced on the Island... More

We stayed on Hamilton Island for 4 nights and 2 of them we chose Manta Ray. They don't take bookings like the other restaurants so you can rock up at any time. Bar staff are fantastic and are happy to make cocktails that are not on the menu, if they can't make it they will find someone who can. Excellent... More

A nice place to grab a bite and a beer. My family spent some time enjoying the atmosphere of this cute pizza joint while I was making the reservations for our excursions for the next couple of days. They liked they food and friendly service. Casual and comfortable way to enjoy the afternoon.

I went to Manta Ray with my 3 kids as part of the kids eat free program. They had a great selection for them and the food came out very quickly. Overall excellent restaurant with very good service.

This is a great spot and the staff are very nice, but the food offering is a bit underwhelming. The pizzas are pretty good, but not cheap. The other dishes I've tried were a bit of a let down.
