Restaurant on the pool on the beach

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.

Called last minute for a booking for 3..also requesting a courtesy bus pick up and drop off. 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

We had a birthday lunch here last week, and not only was the food beautiful, but the staff went above and beyond to ensure the birthday girl was treated special. They looked after my cake placing it into their coolroom while we ate, and upon my signal, placed candles in and lit and walked it out to our table for... More

If you are staying at the Novotel, their in house dining spot makes a convenient starting point. The Western Australia wine list is basic and good but should be expanded. The lump crab salad contained fresh greens but was quite bland. The oysters are monstrous and for an appetizer, surely six will suffice. They were fresh and I experienced no... More

The Restaurant is at the Novotel Ningaloo Reef Resort. Our two dinners and a breakfast were very good...good variety, well served and outstanding views overlooking the pool and ocean

We stayed at the Novotel Ningaloo Resort and had a breakfast and dinner here. The breakfast experience didn't start well when the waitress who gave us our table was quite cold and non welcoming. She didn't visit at all afterwards to check on us. We asked if we could order the individual breakfast items that we saw in the room... More

Hi Jase, Thanks for taking the time to review Mantaray's. Unfortunately we are not large enough to offer two separate breakfast experiences and we only have the one restaurant. We do however as you pointed out offer all of our room service items as part of the buffet breakfast and this allows you to also enjoy a coffee and juice.... More

Have just come back from France and Spain. Had some great meals but the meal at Mantarays Exmouth was better than anything. Service was superb, view across the bay was unbeatable and the food was the best. I had local snapper with lime and lemongrass sauce and fresh vegetables. My wife had the local sweet lip.

We came here for a sundowner cocktail and a small bite to eat and we're very happy that we did. The staff were excellent and recommended amazing cocktails, the food was delicious and everything was reasonably priced. Beautiful setting too looking out over the water.
