Dinner in Miyajima

I'm considering to stay a night in Miyajima at the newly opened Livemax Resort. However, I am not so keen on the dinner as it's served buffet style, not a kaiseki meal like what ryokans offer. If I should to forgo the dinner and take a breakfast inclusive plan (as opposed to a half board plan).

Based on what I've read so far, there are very limited restaurants open in Miyajima after 6pm. Most are not open for dinner. What are my options for dinner in Miyajima? Does it make sense for me to take the ferry to Miyajimaguchi for dinner and then returning thereafter? Or should I just bite the bullet and get the half board plan??

Appreciate your input on this!

Thanks!

Dinner options at the pier on the mainland side also quite limited. http://tinyurl.com/yddcx3as

There is a kaiseiki restaurant but at 4500 yen I wouldn't expect much.

On the island there's an izakaya in a hotel that's open to the public, and an independent family restaurant away from the strip that closes at ~8.

Go to Tanuki restaurant and bar near the shrine. It is open till late but after early dinner hours, the price goes up a little. When we were there, there was a native English speaking waiter(not sure his nationality because we didn't have to speak to him but perhaps Oz).
