Hubby and I ate here a lot whilst staying at Crown Beach. Lovely food. The Ike Mata was my favourite, generous serving dine very well. Hubby's burger outdid others on the Island. Their food is very fresh and healthy, even the fried chips are very well made, not greasy at all. We ate at a few of the buffets too,... More

The food was great quality, good presentation. Wine list is good, but not many are available by glass.Overall pricing: a bit on the expensive end.

This was a very pleasant restaurant and bar. It was quiet and relaxing and the food was very good. It had a nice atmosphere and a local musician for entertainment. There were some tables close enough to the beach to get a view, but others were further back so that you didn't get that 'on the beachfront' experience.

Breakfast and lunch are as you'd expect at any resort - simple food, but cooked very well. Dinner was a class above. Lovely food, expertly cooked. The theme nights offered a diverse menu to cater for any taste. I would have preferred a larger wine selection, but given we were on a small island in the middle of the Pacific,... More

Came here for the last night on the island to try the Seafood Platter - absolutely stunning! $75 for the two of us is a great deal, and we left very full and happy. Plus a great range of cocktails and views through a garden to the ocean beyond.

Happy hour that lasts 3 hours - YES PLEASE!! Best cocktails on the island - some of them had up to 6 shots per cocktail! Food was amazing as always, I could just live on Ika Mata (raw fish dish).

Really helpful and friendly staff, and meals came out in a timely manner! As we were staying there, we usually had breakfast, snacks and supper there. Overall, the portion sizes were decent, and everything we ate was delicious!
