A good mix of local and traditional food. The cook ups the selection quality and quantity for special occasions like the Valentine's day and the cultural evening meals. Happy 'hour' from four to six pm every evening.

Great food and wide variety of wines. We had the fresh catch over a seafood rossoto with fresh vegetables. Would go to restaurant again when I go back.

Hubby and I ate here a lot whilst staying at Crown Beach. Lovely food. The Ike Mata was my favourite, generous serving dine very well. Hubby's burger outdid others on the Island. Their food is very fresh and healthy, even the fried chips are very well made, not greasy at all. We ate at a few of the buffets too,... More

The food was great quality, good presentation. Wine list is good, but not many are available by glass.Overall pricing: a bit on the expensive end.

This was a very pleasant restaurant and bar. It was quiet and relaxing and the food was very good. It had a nice atmosphere and a local musician for entertainment. There were some tables close enough to the beach to get a view, but others were further back so that you didn't get that 'on the beachfront' experience.

Breakfast and lunch are as you'd expect at any resort - simple food, but cooked very well. Dinner was a class above. Lovely food, expertly cooked. The theme nights offered a diverse menu to cater for any taste. I would have preferred a larger wine selection, but given we were on a small island in the middle of the Pacific,... More
