What a welcome. You'd think you were long lost family. The staff meet you and they remember you. Meals were quite pricey for a small portion but the hot chips with lime aioli was to die for. Definitely my favourite.

This place by the pool at Muri Beach Resort is open from 3 pm and is great for snacks and happy hour cocktails. We stayed at Muri Beach Resort so this was our "go to" bar, together with Nautilus pool and bar next door. Bliss.

Granted it was low season, but each time we went we had the patio to ourselves. Great food, portions are large enough to share. Bonus is water is free!

We visited here a few times over our holiday, most times that we were at Muri beach. Be aware Sunday lunchtimes they can't serve alcohol due to laws. We had great cocktails, enjoyed the local beer, and food was always brilliant. Even when it's raining it's quite cosy watching the rain on the beach. Service was always great with the... More

We regularly enjoyed some cocktails at this restaurant, I can highly recommend the strawberry daiquiri. Can't rate the food as we did not have any.

had a delicious seafood platter here on new years day, fresh ingredients either cooked or served well. the service was good, the bar manager/waiter was friendly, helpful and made a nice cocktail. my only comment would be that the fish cake entree was not as fresh as the main.

Good choice of meals and not too expensive. Chef happy to cater too dietary requirements. Service a wee bit slow but it's island time! Happy to set up a big table for our group.

The atmosphere around pool side was relaxing. The evening menu choice was first class. It was so good, we returned two days latter, which was our last night on the Island. Service was very good.

when is it open? We (4) were staying close by and tried for breakfast, lunch & dinner to no avail. The place looked deserted. Without guests, and the restaurant was closed with the sign inside the door. Maybe next time....... Go expecting you might have to choose somewhere else.

Thank Lyrebird6
