“Amazing food and service”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

One of the best places on the island, great food and service. And the added bonus of seeing possums being hand fed by the staff... Love this place

“A great place!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Service at Man Friday's is excellent. Food it cheap with generous sized serves and good quality Mexican dishes. There are other dishes as well, however, the mackerel I had was a bit over cooked but came with fantastic wedges, crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. The wildlife is certainly entertaining as well!

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is an amazing place. Had a lovely meal here with my young son who still talks about it. Possums come and take food is great. It is far superior dining experience in my personal opinion to anywhere apart from the French restaurant, everyone should try it

“A relaxing dining experience.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

So laid back at Man Friday. We have been coming back here for many years and have not been disappointed. BYO is a bonus with a great range of Mexican meals. The native wildlife always put on a great show. The staff are friendly and efficient.

“Tropic Island Eating”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went twice in a week. Great service and excellent food, with its own special brand of style. If you see it in the light you may think twice. - but wait 'til dark and its a real treat. Highly recommended for a tropical island dinner. Try the varied Mexican menu. Watch out for the wild visitors.
