Only place we came across in Exmouth with miserly portions. Our "romantic" setting was placed right next to a bunch of loud bogans who had obviously been drinking for a while by the time we got there. "Fish of the day" was pretty meagre, particularly given the plentiful fish in Ningaloo reef. Budget food without the budget price tag.

Garlic prawns I thought would of had a hint of garlic but not so. Fellow members of our party had tough roo due to the cut of the meat and the desserts are just to complicated and certainly not up to the venue hype.

We stayed at the Novotel Exmouth for 2 nights and ate almost every meal at Mantaray's restaurant. Buffet breakfasts were delicious with an option of having an omlette made with ingredients of your choice. Dinner was amazing, I had the steak and it was cooked exactly how I like it. The staff were very attentive when it came to my... More

friendly helpful staff; great menu and food; lovely relaxing views of the resort pool, gardens and ocean; we sat inside in the beautifully cool air conditioned restaurant (as it was very hot outside) impeccable surroundings and artwork added to the ambience.

It sounds a bit cliche these days but what a view. Time it right and enjoy the sunset over predinner drinks at a well stocked bar where they know how to make delicious cocktails. The food was good but not outstanding and given the prices one would have hoped for better. Nice all the same.

No hassle booking and the courtesy bus arrived on time with the hotel general manager being our driver for the night! The food was amazing we ended up joining tables with other friends and all of us could not fault any of the... More
