We really liked it here. The waiter was very friendly, the food was yum and the views were great. Definitely worth a visit. It was our last night on the island and this was a great place to sign off.

We ordered four pizzas for three families and ate on the waterfront overlooking the harbour. The pizzas were outstanding. A good mix of toppings and a nice thin crust. The adults and children loved them. We liked the food so much we're back tonight for a meal. Highly recommended- very pleasant staff and a glorious site overlooking the harbour.

Food was superb. The souvlaki was huge and incredibly tasty. Pizzas were great value. Staff were very friendly and nothing too much bother. We also purchased take away which was convenient and lovely quality also. I would recommend dining here for sure!

No complaints here, excellent attentive service from staff, lovely pizzas, excellent salmon and a good selection of wines. A shade pricy but the view of the boats in the marina and watching the sun set over the water were worth paying for.

These guys are known for their pizza and it's understandable, but the sangria was pretty memorable too. We sat on the back and enjoyed watching the boats toot in and out of the harbor while we ate and drank. Service was good and it was clean even with the birds trying to be sneaky. Wish we'd been able to stay... More

Ham/pine $22 and half and half $29. Nothing flash but neither was it awful. Service was fine. And they do give you a takeaway box if... More

Only have positive things to say about Manta Ray. The food was exactly what we were after - not too fancy but still delicious. The cocktails were delicious and our waitress was great. Lastly, the setting at the marina was stunning. Overall, Manta Ray was the total package - would highly recommend!
