I would recommend that anyone visting LHI should dine at Pandanus. The food was excellent - we had mains (LHI Kingfish) and desserts (Creme Brulee) - and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed - we sat outside on the verandah on a balmy February evening.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much the first time that we went back a second time. The staff could not have been nicer and the food was excellent. Too bad it is so far away!

We stayed in broken banyan where only across the road from Pandanrus. We had a wonderful night here. Food was exceptional, the staff were friendly and professional. We absolutely recommend here for dinner. The Beer are so affordable here as well. We were surprised.

Pandanus was our favourite restaurant on the island (just slightly ahead of Greenback Eatery, which was also excellent). We ate here twice - on our first and last nights, the menu had changed so we were able to experience another bout of difficult decision-making. On the first visit we had scotch fillet with potato dauphinoise, green beans, field mushroom and... More

The food was amazing - I don't know how they do it when supplies on this tiny island are limited. Definitely a place to dine while on Lord Howe!

We ate at Pandanus twice (so impressed with our first meal we went back). Fabulous food and lovely setting. Definitely the best restaurant on the island.

Nice white-tablecloth (well paper actually, but it truly sets the scene) nice decor, choice of inside or out & good service.

Linguini was heavy on chilli -... More

We loved Pandanus. Well prepared fresh food , and generous servings. Service was faultless.Suited us well as it was just a few minutes walk from our accommodation, but the owners offer a lift home anyway if needed,as with all the other restaurants on the island.
