Had a chicken wrap, it was delicious and great value for money. The glass of water on the side was very nice too.

It's located a bit far from the central Muri Beach and tucked away from the main road resulting in it not being crowded as some other (overpriced) places down the road. The restaurant itself looked very nice, as did the hotel bungalows nearby.

We were staying at this resort so tried the restaurant a few times. Always a good idea to kick off with a cocktail or two at Happy Hour prices! Happy Hour is usually 4-5 but sometimes was 4-6.
Note that the restaurant is poolside and not right on the beach but still has a lovely atmousphere. There was live music a couple of times a week and one night was very impressive (can't remember their names, sorry).
We tried 'Garlic Lime Calamari' which was perfectly cooked and we kept trying the Dishes of the Day usually fish (often with mixed salad and garlic lime aoli) and all were delicious. The Pork Tenderloin was also yummy as a change from the usual local fish.
Other reviews have noted poor service - but I do think this really depends on who is working on the night as they did have a few newer staff working some nights who weren't as fast as the regular staff and became a little distracted - Hey sometimes you can allow for "island time" as we are on holiday after all!
The house Pinot Grigio was a great find for us. No complaints at all, well worth a visit.

We had our wedding reception at Aqua Cafe and it absolutely amazing.

The food was 5 star and the venue was decorated perfectly.

We also dined here on several occasions through out our stay and were never dissapointed.

I would highly recommend Aqua cafe.

My two sons and I had lunch here cos it was handy to resort. I phoned to book and they were a little rude.
We ordered club sandwiches and asked for a few things to be left out e.g. lettuce, aioli etc. The waitress was careful in writing this down then handed the wrong ones to each person. We didn't realise until too late and my youngest missed out. They apologised and said "he got the wrong one". We ordered a bowl of chips for him and had to pay for it but they were nice.
Nice setting but servicec average. Prices ok.

The cocktails here are fab! The daily special is two for one - so two cocktails for $14 is an absolute bargain. Make sure you try the cosmopolitan.
They were very accommodating with our chidren when we ate there one night. A couple of times we ordered dessert/snacks after dinner and these were delivered to our room. Great service.
