Good lunch spot

Lovely ambience, Pleasant food. The pork green curry was a winner; the crumbed gold band snapper was good but very small portions of fish. Reasonable beer and wines.

Food for dinner was very nice although range on menu was perhaps a bit limited. Service was good and friendly and a reasonable selection of wines. Pricing was about what I would have expected - not unreasonably expensive. It was pretty quiet when we were there as not peak time. The only other option within easy walking distance is Whalers...

We had a dinner for two what staying at the Novotel Resort and where very disappointed with this restaurant. Whilst the menu looked good to food quality was quite ordinary and about par with what you'd expect at a club in a major city. She had the goats cheese chicken which had fakon rather than bacon. He had the Indian... More

This bistro is in the Novotel Resort.The seafood was very good, as you would expect in Exmouth. The other dishes not quite as good, standard hotel food. The service was very good, the staff friendly and efficient

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

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.
