Casual and good

Friendly. The pizzas have a lovely thin base and fresh toppings. The entree grilled prawns were fantastic! The souvlaki is a very large serve indeed and quite delicious. Service was friendly and competent.

The best part about this restaurant is its position and view. The food was okay, had to wait a while for a table-definitely book. It was way too cold, so they definitely need to invest in heaters. All the staff were lovely-just need to work a bit on the food i think.

Ate here on a busy saturday night. Had around a 45 min wait for a table. Ordered the steak which turns out to be slow (aka pre) cooked. Tasty enough but not as good as a cooked to order steak. Also the baked potato was rock hard. Wife had the salmon. Big portion and nicely cooked. Overall, probably comparable to... More

We had dinner here towards the end of our stay on the island and I wish we had have gone more than once! The location is sublime, right on the water's edge watching the boats dock. The service was the best that we received on the whole island for the whole of our week long stay. The staff, quite simply,... More

Manta Ray restaurant is in a lovely location overlooking the marina. The staff are very friendly, service quite good, food excellent. They were happy, for a charge that was on the expensive side, to cook a fish we had caught & presented it beautifully. Our entree of the flat breads with dips was delicious as well.

Went here a couple of time to meet family who were staying at various places across the island. They manage large groups well and the food is simple but tasty and plentiful. Coffee is also good.

For what you get the prices were not simply worth it. The pizzas were dull (yet you pay through the nose for them), and all the other dishes we tried were both dull and small in portion size. We were disappointed each time we went.
