We did a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza and it was fantastic. The flavor was surprisingly soaked into the dough and it was a perfect atmosphere to enjoy it. Worth the trip if you are looking for a quick bite to eat before starting your night out.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Manta Ray. The pizzas are highly recommended. The only downside... there is no air conditioning or fans.

The best pizza not just on the island, but perhaps that I have ever eaten anywhere! Watch out for the cockatoos, the sneaky things will attempt to distract you and steal your food if you are near the water. Adds a dash of entertainment to your meal!

My Partner and I dined at Manta Ray Hamilton Island last night to celebrate our engagement. Staff were wonderful and very polite. We were given a glass of Champagne on the house to celebrate our engagement. Food was outstanding. The view was stunning. We would definitely recommend Manta Ray and will be back.
