“Sublime Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

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!

“Best restaurant on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

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.

“Good Value - Better than Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

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

service. As with other restaurants in the island corkage is $10/table and by-the-glass is not so bad at $9, so
by-the-glass or their-bottle is worth considering. Meals are good sized and taste very nice. Linguini was heavy on chilli
- but that may be a personal taste issue. I would have to conclude it was better value that Greenbacks.

“Fabulous food and ambience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

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.
