Ate here a number of times. The daily specials were great although a couple of the normal menu items I didn't find as fresh.

Dear AndrewAus Thank you for your review. I am sorry that some of our menu items were not to your liking. We only serve fresh produce which we cannot always get so we may run out of items. In any case, I am glad you had a good stay with us, and next time do not hesitate to tell me... More

Menu has a large selection to choose from. Some of the items on the menu are excellent, others not as much. Fairly often some ingredients were out of stock, which is understandable since we are on an island, but that might have a little effect on some of the dishes. Excellent and friendly staff and great cocktails. Great place to... More

Our whole family of 8 persons came in for dinner on Thursday evening. The staff had set up a table outside under an illuminated tree which was a great setting for us all. The service was efficient and fast, and everyone enjoyed their meals. Of note, the beef carpaccio was exceptional. We will be back.

The staff at the Restaurant give genuine personalized and lively service. The food is amazing and an awesome range in the menu. In addition to normal restaurant they offer private jetty or private beach BBQ. The Beach BBQ was one of best dinners I've ever had. Our chef Richie was a legend! Thanks

We had some excellent meals here but I have to give it the poor rating due to the fact my husband got food poisoning.

Dear patriciadrew28 Thank you for your review of your August stay at the Point Restaurant. We did have a stomach "bug" that went around the island and lasted 36 to 48 hours so the food may not have been the culprit. I do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back one day.

We stopped here for lunch on our round the island drive, the resort looks really well maintained and pretty. We had lunch in a big beautiful dining room overlooking the lagoon.
