We had a pizza delivery from here, it seems to be one of the only places that does deliver on the island. The pizza itself was good, but we were a little surprised by the price! 2 pizza's + delivery to Reef View Hotel was $62. Having said that, they were really our only choice and the chilli pizza was...

Really busy and buzzing place when we eat there last night. We didn't book so had to wait 30 mins for a table. There is a little bar area where you can wait and have a drink. The food and service was very good and we sat on a table over looking the marina. I would definitely suggest a visit... More

Came here for my birthday lunch with family and friends. Was quite busy, yet staff didn't look rushed or flushed and accommodated for us very quickly. Food and cocktails were very fast, delicious too. As a waiter myself, I am very critical to detail, but everything was great! Shout out to Geoffry our waiter who was an absolute gem! He... More

Manta Ray was in a great location overlooking the marina with a beautiful ambience for both day and night dining. The service was quick and the people were fantastic and friendly. The food was also wonderful and not too badly priced considering some of the other places on the island. The meals were large meals so you get your money's... More

We ate here this evening- because we were impressed last night. The lamb for 4 was wonderful. Accompanied by some fries and veg we had more than enough and it was all very good. A glass of 150 lashes and a bottle of sauvignon Blanc also went down well. Pity we go home tomorrow! Thanks.

Stopped here for lunch with a group of 8 people - and had a wonderful time! The service was excellent - quick - friendly. We had a few share plates first then a few pizzas and the food was very tasty.

Dined at Manta Ray twice during our holiday in Hamilton Island. The first time we ordered take-away pizzas which were great, but overpriced - there is not really any other competition on the island for pizza! The second time, we ate in! We didn't book, so had to wait for a table but we ordered drinks and only sat for... More

This was listed as the best pizzas on Hamilton. This place was buzzing & packed, good sign. Ordered pizzas, pulled Pork sounded good. Ordered a drink while we waited. Pizzas arrived before our drinks 😢 when we ate our pizzas I was so disappointed presentation & taste were lacking.

Delicious pizza and nice setting. Staff were friendly. Only thing I would suggest is don't try to order delivery during the school holidays. Was told there was a 2 hour wait. Not a big issue as its only a 5 minute buggy ride or 10min walk to pick up and it was ready in 15 minutes.

Thank GCSteph
