Hidden Gem of a restaurant! Open to the public, so will definitely be eating here again even if staying elsewhere ! Chef Steve's Calamari is to die for, and his home made seafood sauce delicious.the oysters naturel were some of the best I've had anywhere.

Chef made a tasty oysters kilpatrick, before serving an entree size garlic prawns in white wine sauce on a bed of jasmine rice. Which was a good size serving for the price. Would definitely recommend to try this restaurant.

We were accommodated elsewhere but advised to use this restaurant which apparently belonged to the same property owner. What a difference! Although the premises are dated, they were clean and tidy and breakfasts offered were brilliant. The chef was a jolly man where nothing was a bother, and prices very competitive. His service could not be faulted. We had one... More

1st night had chef special of the fish of the day, was a really nice barramundi, and the 2nd night enjoyed a big steak, with some chips and vegetables. Was well priced, and great flavour.

Fairly large choice on the buffet - but for the price paid - should have just eaten off the a la carte menu. Make sure you book and tell them you are local or pay through the nose!!!!

With a collective mixture of contemporary and classic design and views of tropical gardens, you sure will be pleased with the location of the Coral Gardens Restaurant.

Offering locally caught seafood, succulent steaks, fresh salads, and seasonal vegetables, you will be very pleased with the options. Not just offering a large variety of dishes, we also offer a few options for dining.

During the couple of humid wet months that the tropics bring, having a seat inside the restaurant is the comfortable choice, with a large fish tank along with gentle back ground music, you will feel relaxed and ready to try out our a-la carte menu.

For the rest of the beautiful almost year round weather, you might be much more inclined to have a table on the outside area, you will be dining under the stars, amongst tropical palm trees and enjoying the clear night skies.

Coral Bar is our onsite famous bar that is renowned for its characters and stories. It's a place to share your adventures and experiences that your travels have produced. Along with plenty of stories, come plenty of beverages. You will have options from all around the world, beers, wines, and spirits.

Sit back and enjoy a beverage sharing your stories amongst others in the company of a bar atmosphere. If relaxing in our tropical pool and spa setting while having a drink is more your style, then let our friendly staff deliver the drinks to you.
