I ate breakfast at Mantarays whilst I was staying at the adjoining resort. At previous visits I was given the option of a buffet breakfast, but was advised this time that it was Al la Carte only. This was because it was "quiet season", the strange thing is that the four other times i had stayed here it was on... More

Stayed at this Hotel for 5 days. Could not fault both the service and food quality. Although it was deemed Low Season the staff obviously were very busy and presented themselves with quality service. The food at this restaurant was of high quality and we ate here most days without problems. I would recommend Mantarays to anyone and the prices... More

We had dinner here once, and it was delicious. We both had the kangaroo with chocolate sause and it was crazy delicious. The staff was very friendly. reservation recommended because it is the Novotel hotel restaurant and there are not so many places. However, if it is fully booked, I would recommend the Whalers restaurant nearby.

Fancy and has a good view. Very relaxing environment. Food is good and service is fine. Kids meal is very affordable and they have kids giveaways to keep them busy. A bit disappointed that there's surcharge for using a visa credit card though.

We ate here while staying at the Novotel and had a wonderful evening. The staff were very attentive and he food was excellent quality. There wasn't a vast menu but there was a good variety which meant there was something for everyone.

Seriously bad service. Had breakfast every day for a week there and not once did they get order right. Waiters were never around and when they did come out, they would grab the plates keep their head down and keep walking, as if they were scared of being asked to do something. Food was OK but inconsistent. Extremely overpriced. Only... More

Booked in to the Novotel for 3 days extended to 4. Resturant served up excellent dishes. Limited menu made sure the offering was very good. Not what you normally expect from a global chain. Whole team at hotel very attentive.

We ate here the 3 nights that we stayed here as we had enjoyed it so much, felt no need to go elsewhere. The waiters were very helpful. Just one drawback on the last night it was extremely windy and our food got cold quite quickly as the plates hadn't been warmed and we were all eating a cooked meal.... More
