“The most OUTSTANDING fish sandwiches EVER”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I went twice on my visit in 2012 and was determined to go again to experience the best fish sandwich of my life again in 2014. In the space of 6 days, I had two meals here. Jilly Mae is doing all the right things - she's welcoming, organised and has the best product imaginable. I can't wait to go again in 2015.

“Everything they said it would be...”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

There is a reason this little walk-up window place is rated #1. Definitely a not to be missed lunch spot. The FOB sandwiches are fantastic! Fresh caught Tuna filet on the day we went.
It is a small walk-up with a handful of picnic tables out front but the sandwiches are great and you can't complain of the view near Muri beach. It's slightly off the road, so watch carefully for the signs.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Simply put, the freshest ingredients at great prices. We actually turned up in the pouring rain, huddled under an umbrella and had the most sensational sandwich. Make sure you pay it a visit!

“A must do lunch in Raro! Don't miss it!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We went to the Mooring after a few days in Raro to see if it would live up to its reputation and IT DID!! In all, we went 3 times during our 11 day stay!
We had the FOB sandwich each time and it was great - fresh fish, tasty sauce and lovely soft Turkish bread! We couldn't fault it.
Their smoothies are also very nice.
The staff are great - very friendly, and it's a lovely spot to sit and look out over the lagoon.
