We had 3 nights on Lord Howe and dined here twice. The food is fresh, delicious and the staff are great. We had the Kingfish which was superb, the pork belly was delicious, the steak was great and the soft shell crab - YUM. It definitely is a 'must dine at' place. Most restaurants on the island offer complimentary transport... More

Without a doubt Pandanus is one of Lord Howe Islands best restaurants. We have returned there many times over several years and it has never disappointed us, it has constantly maintained a high standard of service and wonderful food. If anything, it has improved more so. The staff are friendly and willingly offer their advice and help with any queries... More

We ate here twice during our holiday on Lorde Howe in December. Both times were superb. Friendly service. Nice, relaxed environment and great food. Recommend the steak, scallops and the pumpkin pizza.

We had a perfect Christmas lunch at Pandanus. We could not fault anything from the setting, the food and service. Just remember to book early and if you a couple like us arrive early if you want to pick your table. We did and so we were not disappointed.

Excellent food with a good range of choice. Service friendly. Transport home provided after dinner. Moderately pricey but well within the island's norms.
