Well worth a visit

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

Having enjoyed eating here in the past we were looking forward to tasting their food once again. However it was a great disappointment to have a very mediocre meal here. The Gnocchi was hard and bouncy with no flavour to the sauce and the Pork Belly heralded as having less fat suffered from being dry then served without any sauce... More

Wow, last time we were on the Island there were not the restaurants around as there were this time. This has been the biggest change since our last visit and we were happily surprised and the quality and detail of our meals. We even went back again!

We had a three course meal at Pandanus and each course was incredibly nice. We had heard the restaurants on LHI had good food and I'm happy to say that the hearsay is true.
