Good value and excellent meals

A little way "out of town" but recommended for the fine food and very friendly and helpful staff. Being out of town is not a problem as there is a bus that takes diners home. The King Fish is to die for!

Wait staff very pleasant, good choices. Steaks over cooked, order down. Humourous errors in spelling on specials board.

the evening we went to Pandanus our lift didn't arrive and the owner came to pick us up as well as drop us off at the end. I had a succulent steak cooked to perfection ( med rare for me) and my partner loved his lamb shanks which melted in the mouth. The prices were very reasonable and less than... More

This restaurant is run by the same person that runs the Museum cafe during the day. Up in the hill above town on a dark road if you are walking. I enjoyed the Trevelly sashimi for a change.

We dined here twice over our one week stay on Lord Howe Island. The food, service, atmosphere and experience was lovely. We are looking at visiting Lord Howe Island again and will definitely dine here again.

We only had a meal of fish and chips which was provided with our trip so it was just and ordinary meal but very tasty. We looked at the menu and was impressed to come back again but ran out of time. They serve Australian meals during the week and Asian at the weekends. Sorry we didn,t get back.

We ate here on our first evening. Entrees were chicken yakitori and seafood salad with lime and chilli - delicious. I had a beef rendang which was very tasty, but I would have liked a little more sauce, and my husband had kingfish which he enjoyed. Good food, reasonably priced, in a lovely setting.

Our meal was excellent at Pandanus. I had the Curry King Prawns which were superb. the staff were very friendly and even drove us back to our accommodation after we finished our meal. We would certainly eat there again.

Although it is a hike up to the top of the hill it is well worth the effort as the food is good, the atmosphere and decor very appealing. Nice to eat on the deck on a good night. I am assured the Pizzas are excellent,

We first discovered Pandanus while staying nearby at Lorhiti. A fabulous find as the food was stunning. During our stay we ate there a few times and it was consistently good. Reasonably priced (we are from Sydney and used to prices in the city and Eastern Suburbs) and the food was an exceptionally high standard with some innovative combinations. Favourite... More
