Called into the Castaway Resort as it was on the way home from a few drinks with friends. To be honest, we should have started at Castaway.

The staff were welcoming and pleasant. It was explained that there were two bar areas - Crusoes, which surrounds the swimming pool / and Wilsons Bar, which is closer to beach but only a short 30m walk away. Won't get into why the name Wilsons Bar - because I can leave that up to the owner Paul to explain. Very nice man.

We ordered a seafood platter to share - and it was ample. A mixture of fish bites / prawn twisters / ika mata / scallops / squid and a couple of dipping sauces.

After this experience we have decided to return and try the pizza and beer night. i am picking it will be equally as good quality and value.

We ate lots of seafood while on the island and we loved it here. The beach front restaurant"Wilson's" had a great feel about it. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of funky places to go on the island but this was certainly one of our best selections. enjoy, relax and have fun!

We absolutely love this little hideaway. Nothing fancy. Very small, very sweet and simple garden to walk through on the way to the beach. We did not stay here but looked over the room details while visiting the beach bar/restaurant and would definitely plan a stay here. It's a very special little spot. Dropped by for a sunset cocktail and were greeted and welcomed very graciously by the proprietor. We happened on a night when they bar food was pizza. We ordered the meat lovers and it was fabulous! Cocktails were delicious and we loved listening to the two musicians. An added plus for us. We were not expecting entertainment. The sunset . . . well just look at my photos. Spectacular. I would recommend this place.

This place is a little gem. The food is fresh & fabulous. I stayed at Castaway Resort & so sampled a few of their menus. Each night of the week has a different theme. Thusday nights are pizza night. Make sure you order early as this is very popular with the locals & you can wait an hour for your pizza if you leave it too late. The best option is to order your pizza, nominate the time you would like it, then head to the Resort's beach bar for a cocktail while you wait. The pizza can be delivered to you on the beach. Other nights are seafood, curry, pasta, Mexican & BBQ. For a small resort, they punch well above their weight. The service is friendly & if you're really lucky, you may even get some island singing from the kitchen!
