Fabulous food and the service was great. Really well looked after by the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Added bonus of a beautiful setting & cocktails on the beach, watching the sunset before dinner.

Food & setting was great, love the duck breast and what I think is island fries. Lovely service. The kiwi fellow on the guitar is the same fellow that ruined my night at yellow hibiscus. Get rid of him, his repertoire is tired & his voice is terrible.

We were staying down the road at Edgewater, but decided to venture down the road for a change and Crown Beach Resort looked worth a try. We couldn't get a table at the first attempt, so we booked for the following night. Even then it was quite busy, so we had a pre-dinner drink while we waited It was around... More

We went back to have a few cocktails to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary after being married here but this time with a little one in tow. Staff were awesome &cocktails were perfect! Great spot & great views. Was just sad we weren't staying in a pool room like last year.

I arrived at last minute with a couple whom we decided to have lunch here and being that it was Sunday (and only resort restaurants would be open) we enjoyed lunch and cocktails on a beautiful day. Cocktails were definitely value for money and the food was yummy especially for a quick lunch with locally sourced product. Would recommend lunch... More

I love the local Iki Mata (raw fish) and was very happy to find that the best and freshest is made to order by Oceans chef Betty! Not to be missed lunch treat- goes well with a bottle of Champagne down under the palm trees on the beach!

Unlike the rest of the restaurants we used this is part off a resort complex and whilst it has covered and beach view tables it also has all the breakfast serving equipment on view too which may put some people off. That said, as with all restaurants the service was friendly and the food enjoyable. Didn't make our top 2... More

At least three nights have themes and food for each theme, plus live entertainment. Non-guest came for Island night and the Maori Dance show. Loved the whole place.
