We wanted a quick bite to eat one night and decided to try this restaurant. It was wonderful. The pizza was so delicious! We really enjoyed the food and our server was really friendly and helpful. We sat out on their deck looking over the bay/harbour and it was really a lovely view as the sun was setting. So, when... More

This cafe is extremely busy during the evenings but the staff are most friendly and accommodating. If you wish to dine in, bookings are recommended.

Beautiful setting. Have read so many negative reviews on other restaurants on the island so we decided to eat here. Prices really reasonable compared to other places. Didn't need to book. Really enjoyed our meal! We just went for the Peri Peri Chicken Pizza and fries but could have gone with steak, salmon...... Highly recommend Manta Ray Cafe!

Walk in restaurant policy works well with plenty of tables. Compared to other restaurants on the island Manta Ray offers great value and a varied menu.

After a long day of traveling it was nice to find a reasonably priced place to have dinner with friends. I wouldn't go there to drink ($9+ for a Stella = Ouch!). The staff are very friendly and the meals arrived promptly. The chicken souvlaki looked awesome and I enjoyed my pizza. This is also a participating "Kids eat for... More

Great pizzas, but should have taken the waiter's advice and shared one pizza between 2 people. Do not miss the Rosemary/sea salt chips!
