Very nice setting but over priced! My husband and I both had the Salmon on polenta and it was rather tasteless was expecting a lot more for the price! Staff were very nice and friendly!

Had breakfast and dinner at MRays during our recent stay. The breakfast was the best buffet we have experienced anywhere in the world. Massive selection of uber gourmet food. Dinner was a la carte and our waiter guided us through highlights of the menu. He couldn't do enough to help. The food was cooked perfectly....the prawn cones just amazing. Thoroughly... More

My partner and I had a very nice evening at the Novotel Mantaray restaurant. We started with cocktails on the terrace by the pool - excellent and quite reasonable at $16 each. We then had the Moroccan Spiced Fillet Steak with roast vegetable cous cous. The steaks at $41 were quite expensive but typical of the area. They were cooked... More

We stayed at the Novotel Ningaloo resort, so its on-site restaurant Mantarays is an obvious choice :-) the food is nice, but the prices are a bit expensive.

Well appointed restaurant in the Novotel hotel, stunning views.We ate there a couple of times during our stay as the dining discount with the Accor card makes it very economic.The service was a bit patchy, but this is a remote area and staffing difficulties would be the norm, overall the restaurant was well run , a good selection of meals...

From the cocktails before dinner all the way through to the breakfast the following morning this restaurant ALWAYS delivered - beautiful location and yummy food. Sometimes busy in the morning but if you weren't in a rush you're guaranteed lovely food and friendly service :-)

You wouldn't call Mantaray, in the Novotel Ningaloo Resort, "fine dining" because the indoor and especially alfresco nature of the dining experience makes it too laid back and relaxed to require starched linen and a rarefied atmosphere. It overlooks the broad expanse of the large swimming pool and the Indian sea by the adjoining beach.The prices, on the other hand,... More
