Busy busy at 6pm when we fancied an early dinner. We didn't mind waiting the proposed 30 mins though there was limited seating and people and kids roaming everywhere. The back deck was nicely positioned for the waiters walking down the centre corridor and there were children at almost every table - so not somewhere I'd recommend for a quiet early dinner. The pizza and salad we shared were both very good. The food and drink menus both had plenty of options. The staff were mostly attentive, though not very knowledgeable about the food when we had questions.

We sat and tried their cocktail first while roaming around Hamilton Island, ordered 2 mojitos for 35 dollars, waited for nearly half an hour for it, but maybe they forgot our order. So my husband went to the bar and ask the 2 ladies there if it is ready, was told that they will bring them on our table when its ready, after another 20 minutes they finally served them. The funny bit is, they didn’t even apologise for their poor service on a not so very busy day, and no, we didn’t end up eating there because of that slow service.

We enjoyed the location and sunset from the outdoor deck of this popular spot on the marina and staff were very pleasant but the pizza left us disappointed- we chose the Mediterranean option with eggplant and other vegetables but it was quite dry and very hard to cut even with a sharp knife- and at $26 it was just as well we opted to share. Much better food in this price range at then Marine Tavern opposite - which also
Has a harbour view.

We went to Manta Ray twice in the week we stayed on HI, so that's a recommendation I suppose. The first time we had good pizza and the second time Souvlaki that we could have shared. It's popular, so book early. the cocktails were good too.

The Pizzas here are excellent . We simply love them. You can also order half / half to have 2 different types on one pizza. Kids below 12 years eat here for free too if you stay in one of the participating hotels. Great place for family with reasonable pricing. No reservations required.
