“the best place on the island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

It's sad that ona place like Hamo that (excluding Qualia) that this is the best place to dine. It ticks all the boxes, service, location, food and value.

A few beers and a prawn pizza aroudn sunset was a great way to start the evening.

FYI Pebble beach @ Qualia is the best. and we have tried EVERY restaurant on the island.

“Great restaurant for the whole family.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Children's Buffet and great choices in the menu. Everything from an awesome Seafood Risotto to Gourmet Pizza.
A definite must.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were at the restaurant before the evening rush and had two very nice pizza's. You could do a two toppings half/half which I always like to do to try something new.
The pizza was good and the surroundings with view of the marina was marvelous. Reasonable priced.

“Great pizzas and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We visited with our 16 and 11 year old boys and loved the pizzas ( very substantial), service and great view of the marina. Prices are steep as they are on much of the island.

“Pizza had to be sent back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Pizza was undercooked, you could see the cheese still hadn't melted properly, didn't even have that nice browned look you get on a pizza. Sent it back, came back ok, but still nowhere. This is our second trip back to Hami and the food was average then at this restaurant (18 months ago). Hasn't improved.
