My husband and I ate at Pandanus two nights ago after reading fantastic reviews and having high expectations. We were not disappointed. We have eaten at many restaurants at LHI and this was the best experience. The sashimi for entree and kingfish for main are both highly recommended. Staff were so accommodating and friendly. Dietary needs were met without a... More

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay and couldnt help but order the same meal each time. The food here is fantasic and we felt the prices were reasonable for the quality and portion sizes. Their chips (as an extra side dish) were unbelievable as well. I would go back again and again next visit.

We went to Pandanus on the first night of our visit and on the last. Both occasions were great, with the service friendly and efficient and the food great. We particularly enjoyed Jon-jon's ebullience - and then he kept popping up all over the island! Highly recommended!

Pandanus is a spacious well appointed eatery with pleasant outdoor tropical feel. Food was good, generous servings with attentive service. Good option for dinner.

The quality of food here is great. The service is with a smile and it's a very relaxed atmosphere in amongst the lovely palms and ferns of Lord Howe. It's up the hill but not a problem if you have a mobility problem or just don't want to walk as your host will drive you there and the restaurant will... More

Our best restaurant in Lord Howe island. The food was delicious and so fresh! The smiling staff is really nice. The price is not expensive for the great food quality and the average price of the island.

This restaurant got reasonable choice of food. Was here twice during my 4 days stay and food is surprisingly good. I would say probably better than a lot of restaurants in sydney !! Expensive or not depends on where you come from, I would say it is on par or cheaper than sydney.

Our family of 5 adults dined here twice during our one week stay. While being within easy walking distance of our accommodation, we returned for the second visit because of the delicious food and the very friendly service. The covered outdoor area provided a lovely environment for an informal Lord Howe Island meal. We would highly recommend this place. And... More
