I recommend everything on their menu but particularly enjoyed the wagyu beef, Patagonian toothfish, eggplant dish and the steamed whole reef fish. They will fillet the reef fish if you prefer not to deal with bones.

We waited at the door of the restaurant for 8 minutes prior to being noticed. (We had made a booking the day before) The girl who seated us was rude and unpleasant, she actually huffed at us!

A great menu and service. Ate at table for two in middle of garden near restaurant. A beautiful way to spend an evening . Hayman is known for food and this place keeps with that tradition.

Another strange menu from the Hayman clan, but still better than the Italian place. With the captive clientel, it's probably the best restaurant on the Island
