“Don't Miss the Antipasto its Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The Service, Food and Atmosphere are very excellent. The waiters are efficient, the food delightful with reasonable proportions. The antipasto for two was wonderful, a real treat. Chef-made Turkish Delight flavoured Ice cream accompanying the dessert was not to be missed. The wine list is limited though adequate (same owner as Coral Café). Pricing is on par with an equivalent Sydney restaurant.

“Best place to eat on Lord Howe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We ate out at a few different places on Lord Howe and thought this was the pick of the bunch. Amazing food! We had a pizza and steak for dinner and and a pork belly/squid entree. It was superb.

Pandanus had a great selection on the menu. You had the choice of the islands best fish but also chicken /steak /pasta.
The food was sensational ( the antipasto platter for 2 a must! also the king prawn linguine ) and the staff all friendly ! two thumbs up!

“Dining at Lord Howe Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We ate here twice while there.The food was extremely fresh .We dined on the local fish which was well presented.The drinks were reasonably priced( stubbies from $5).On our first visit the owner drove us home early as we had completed our meal.On the second occasion he drove us home via the Mutton Bird Colony.It is quite some distance from some accommodation and would be too far to walk home in the dark.It was quite cool on our second visit and could have done with portable heaters.

“Good food”

Enjoyed a very nice dinner of King Fish. Service pleasant and ambience great. Plus, only a few metres from The Broken Banyan where we were staying.
