We went for lunch. On the recommendation of a tour group. I had the eggplant pasta which was so good and a very refreshing ice coffee. My husband had a fish wrap and lime milkshake, he loved the milkshake, best we every had. Definitely worth just going for the milkshake. Will definitely be back to try more of the Menu.... More

Dined here some nights and lunch times and loved all the food that we tried. Good choices available to most people at an affordable price. A good selection of fresh seafood. Friendly and helpful staff made it very pleasurable.

We wanted a smart restaurant, with an interesting varied menu and a slightly more formal feel for our last night on the island ... so we travelled to SilverSands from our own hotel near the airport especially. Really pleased we did as it was a lovely dining experience. A warm relaxing environment, great attentive service and a delicious meal. Thank... More

We were not staying at this resort, but the staff were so friendly to us, we returned often. They knew our names after our first visit. The menu is varied and all the food was delicious. It was my favorite local restaurant on Muri Beach.

We decided to go full-on-tourist, and went to the Muri Beach Club Hotel's Island Night at the Silver Sands. We're glad we did. First, the room is very pleasant, with seating for about 50, the pool on one side, and the lagoon and beach on the other. Ceiling fans and ocean breezes keep it very cool. The welcome was warm,...

We stayed at the Hotel that SilverSands is located. The ribs, steak, prawns and Thai soup was delish! Other food was decent but nothing to write home about. Service was good, some waitresses seemed bored and uninterested.

Pig and prawn night This is a must. Set up to be a sharing meal with your partner or a group. The pork ribs were marinated in the most flavoursome sauce and the meat was melt in your mouth. Great wine selection. The dessert was the best mousse I have ever had. With a hint of ginger it was smooth... More
