This is a beautiful restaurant. If you rate a restaurant, as I do, based on the following key attributes:
Then you will find Tamanu achieves an A+ on all counts.
It is very secluded and the dirt road into the resort isnt overly fun, but it is worth it in the end. The restaurant looks right out over the ocean, and its open air plan gives you the beach side dining expereince without the sand in your toes.
The menu is impressive with a heavy sway towards, you guessed it, seafood! We didnt hold back here either, lobster mornay, crab and avocado salad, wahu fillet and seafood crepes washed down with Tusker (him) and NZ Pinot Grigio (Me) was devine. Plus the bill coming in at around $120AUD certainly demonstrates good value for money considering what we ordered and the quality of the dishes.
Make this a lunch destination on your itinerary. If you want to amp up the romance factor charter a Helicopter to drop you off right on the beach. Which ever mode of transport you choose to arrive here doesnt matter.
You wont regret it.
