Lovely location, right on the Marina. Service was great so no complaints there. Cocktails yummy as you'd expect. Food however a bit touch and go. We ordered a garlic pizza. This was the worst excuse for a garlic pizza I have ever experienced. It was really more a cheese pizza than anything. I would have preferred a McCains pizza. Actually,... More

We had a group of 25. Service was very good, as was the food. Once the sun went down, the ocean breezes kept us cool.

Manta Ray is a great place to eat for families or couples. The staff are fantastic, always smiling and if a table is not available they will make sure you are seated comfortably while waiting a short time for one. The pizza's are their specialty also offering takeaway service and delivery to your accommodation. Highly recommended

Great place in an amazing location. Myself and husband called in during the day for drinks during the day and had the perfect spot overlooking the marina. That evening we went with friends and their two children. A few hit pizzas and a few got lamb koftas. Huge portions and delicious. Staff were friendly and great with the kids! Great... More

Great food and fantastic service. It has awesome pizza. The half and half is the go so you can try 2 at once. The kids meal deal is great value. Even the vegetarians have some options as well. Staff are well trained and made an effort. Thanks for a great night

Opted fire Manta Ray as we were unable to get in else where, was happy we did. The garlic pizza came with a side of pesto which was a nice addition. We opted for a half half with pulled pork on one side and bbq chicken on the other, didn't disappoint... Was presently surprised with the bill. Well worth a... More

overlooking the water the menu is OK, the food quality is also OK, nothing special but I did love they have GF pizza and I think kids eat for free. Great spot for a family. My honey ordered the octopus salad which didn't look appetizing and it was served cold. Not a bad place I think there are nicer places... More

Big servings. Recommend the pizzas and you can order them takeaway.. On the Mariner, and like most places here gets very busy so dinner bookings a must.
