We had lunch here yesterday because we fancied pizza and heard that this was the place to go for them on Hamilton Island. We were certainly not disappointed with our choices and the pizzas themselves were first class. The other food arriving on other tables looked fantastic too! Situated right on the harbour with a lovely outside terrace this was... More

Great location on marina looking over the yachts and cruisers. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and food and service are great.

We ate here for the first time after a half day's dive. The sun was setting and it was really quiet. Loved the views, and saw some ducks in the water. We came back a couple more times and did take aways. The service staff were so friendly, very quick to respond, and have fantastic recommendations. Really loved their pizza!

The children ate here for free and had a simple meal of pizza, juice & ice-cream. They were pleased with their meals. We couldn't book (they only take bookings for 10+) but we turned up at 6pm in the first weekend of Vic school holidays & immediately got a table. The souvlaki was good. Food was simple but tasty.

This is the best value food on this very expensive island. Try to get a table that overlooks the harbour, or enjoy a drink at the bar (they're a little expensive). The food is great and the pizza is amazing! Really good value!

We chose to have a meal at the Manta Ray as part of a Hamilton Island cruises experience - with a visit to Whitehaven beach in the morning and then lunch at the Manta Ray - we were not informed it was a set menu and the advertisement looked like we would have fresh seafood for lunch ie prawns etc...

We visited Manta Ray twice, both for an early dinner. We were seated in the outdoor area under cover, which offered a wonderful view across the marina. Service was excellent on both nights - the staff were very friendly, and they went out of their way to help (particularly on the second night when it started pouring). On the first... More

Beautiful food, ideal for lunch overlooking the Hamilton Island marina and yacht club. Ask for a table outside and watch the bots sail past, a lovely way to spend your afternoon

Can't really fault this restaurant! Delicious pizza and inventive and yummy cocktails. Didn't get to try but the Souvlaki looked amazing, as did the whole menu! Came at about 6.30pm and were told it was a 40-60m wait - very friendly host told us we could go for a drink somewhere else and we were given a buzzer to notify... More
