High end gourmet restaurant food with impeccable service and surroundings 10/10. If you're a sea food lover like myself, the the Arajilla restaurant is the place to be. These guys should seriously think about doing a recipe book, Amazing!

Definitely the best restaurant available to the public on LHI. Capella is the best but only available to residents who need to be well heeled. Arajilla is a resort styled bungalows and quite expensive to stay. However for those who prefer more budget accommodation like us a special night dining at Arajilla is recommended at least once during your stay... More

We eloped on Lord Howe and chose Arajilla for our wedding dinner. The setting is beautiful, the guests and the staff were friendly. The food was amazing. My husband is lactose intolerant and they catered to his needs far better than we have ever experienced, to the extent of making a gourmet dessert especially for him. It was a wonderful... More

Again Arajilla Restaurant didn't disappoint. 3 courses for $95.00 per person is worth it. The entrees included Scampi and Kingfish my boyfriend and I had one of each which was so good. The main i had was the beef which was cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the main of Quail and he said too it was cooked just right. We... More

We were staying next door at Milky Way and although we had been advised that the restaurant was "expensive", we had the best meal of our whole week here. The service was excellent, the food was imaginative and tasty, the ambience was pleasant. It truly was fine dining. We knew it was going to be expensive but we enjoyed value... More

I loved going to the restaurant for a special meal. The food and wine were memorable. We had great service and loved the decor. I am looking forward to visiting Arajilla again for a special night out.

We stayed at LHI for a week, and tried a different restaurant each night. Most of the restaurants, this one included, have only a very limited selection each night. At Arajilla, there was a set menu for $95 per person and included were choices from two entrees, two mains and two desserts. To start we had the tamari & mirin... More

Arajilla accommodation has a high-class restaurant attached to it and, being in celebratory mode, we wanted to dine somewhere special whilst on Lord Howe. We found it at Arajilla. The dining area and adjacent lounge were beautifully lit and attractive. The food and its artistic gourmet presentation was stunning; the food itself was a joy to the taste-buds with added... More

Thoroughly suggest you leave this off your to do list at Lord Howe Island - very over rated, very ordinary food so keep your cash or credit card in your wallet and head somewhere better The staff are very inattentive mostly because they are so young and just drift around like they are on another planet or thinking about which...

For $110 for a 3 course meal, I expected something better. My husband is wheat anaphylactic and even though he was catered for, his food was extremely average. Better meals for half the price can be found at other restaurants. We got warm bread rolls...husband got toasted gluten free bread. We asked for butter...and had to ask again and when... More
