All the food here seemed quite expensive even for a remote island and both our meals were overcooked to the point that the fish in our dish more closely resembled cardboard.

It was okay, food okay, service okay, no locals really which is always a concern for me when I travel. I like places where the locals eat usually the best.

We ate there after a day of diving. The staff were friendly and the tuna steak was very good. They didn't have any more specials even though hey were still on the chalkboard. It was one of the few places that we really liked eating.

The Mango offers absolute waterfront, a really lovely atmosphere. We ordered some delicious sushi. There was great attention to detail, fresh cut flowers on every table and friendly service. We felt it was a bit pricey and the internet Wifi was dreadful at best.

There was a cat running between tables with a poo hanging out of its bottom. I scared it away a few times and one bloke... More

Dined at Mango three times and was impressed every single time. Food was wonderful and the service the staff provided was very friendly, helpful and efficient. Such a wonderful relaxing place to sit and watch the different yachts & boats coming and going.

Had two meals at the Mango and both excellent. A friendly bar and restaurant with great view. Probably the best restaurant in town.
