sophisticated food

this place is more expensive and upmarket then most restaurants in Exmouth but even though it is in the higher budget range the food was amazing, service great and outlook beautiful. Great for a special meal when on holidays

Sat inside and had a decent meal. I must say I was expecting a better seafood selection as the fishing is great in EXMOUTH. We used our 'Accor advantage' for the food which made it value for money. Very nice setting. Staff were friendly.

Manatrays will cook your own fish if you have caught one, but they didn't have a fresh grilled market fish on the menu, so that was disappointing. The fish of the day was a seafood soup, but this close to the game fishing club, and the reef, a fillet of local fish would be a great addition to the menu.... More

Great food and even better look out over the Exmouth Gulf - Look out for the dolphins, fish and whales.

We really enjoyed Mantarays. The service was excellent each time (special thanks to Jennifer and Niels). There are plenty of choices, the food was very tasty and the decor and ambience is ideal.

Did have a better meal at the Potshot Hotel on the Sunday night. Mantarays just a bit over priced for what you get

We stayed at the Novotel Ningaloo resort and ventured to the restaurant after a big day out. The food really good (all 3 courses) and the staff very attentive. Sitting outside overlooking the pool on a balmy Exmouth evening was a good move, it just added to the experience. A great night had by all

This restaurant is based within the Novotel Resort where we were staying and it was first class. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced for this type of quality. The staff were fantastic and so, so friendly. They clearly loved what they were doing.

Staying at the Novotel meant this was our go to restaurant. We went the first time for dinner because the weather had turned nasty on our arrival & so staying within the hotel seemed a great option. We were not disappointed. The food was brilliant. We ended up having several meals at Manta Rays, dinners, lunch & breakfast. Everything was... More
