We had visited this restaurant a few times when we were here in 2001 with the kids, it has great family appeal with yummy pizzas, pastas, fries etc.and its also great value. Location is great, right on the Wharf with outside dining overlooking the boats.

This trip we ate here twice for dinner,the only other night we had on the island for dinner was when we were in lockdown in our room!!! So, you could say this was our favourite place to eat dinner!

Atmosphere is great, staff are friendly and helpful, food is soooo delicious and prices are very also reasonable. The pizzas are by far the BIG hit here and that is what we ordered both nights. One pizza with a side of either garlic bread or fries was plenty to feed both Frank and I, and with drinks, total bill for both of us was about $40.

The Manta Ray Cafe is also included in the "KIDS EAT FREE" list of restaurants.

I cannot highly enough recommend this place, for location, value and quality food.


Favorite Dish: Both nights we ordered a half and half pizza. There is no extra charge for ordering half and half pizzas, most places do charge extra for this. The Meatlovers pizza we thought was the best one!

A Meatlovers Pizza costs $28, a satay prawn pizza costs $28.50 (and is the dearest one) while the cheapest ones are either a Margarita or a Hawaiin Pizza.
