Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited Beach House on the Moon for a dinner to celebrate Dads 80th birthday, and they went above and beyond to make our night special, even arranging pick up from our accommodation after a mix up with our transport. The menu was varied and...well thought out, with great choices for all ages, and all our meals were delicious. We’ll visit again next time we’re on Lord Howe Island.More

This restaurant is only open Monday and Friday so make sure you book, you won’t want to miss it. The food is great, well priced and the wine list is also well priced. The staff are attentive and helpful and the whole experience was the...best we had on the island. Don’t miss it!More

Nice location to have dinner, but caters mainly to seafood eaters. Would love it if they could include some vegetarian options (other than salad and chips, that is).

If you are hungry after all that walking this is the place to go. Book early as it is popular. Tables inside are close together and there is no view from this restaurant. Saying that the food was good so we did return.

Small portions, really expensive for what you got and anything that was deep fried was way overcooked (I had to scrape the batter off my fish). Probably wouldn't come back as we ate at other restaurants which were much better quality for what you paid...for. Service was a little slow (granted it was busy) and we had to ask for our salad twice (it was included in the meal but didn't come until after we had finished. Sadly, it was very average tasting)More

We had a lovely dinner at Beach House on the Moon. The atmosphere was great. I enjoyed their curry and my hubby had the mixed seafood platter. Both were very tasty. The menu is predominantly fish and did not include veggies (only a salad).

We ate here only once and wished we could have dined there again but they are only open on two nights. We both had the fish and it was delicious. Great staff, very friendly and we were will looked after. Also very reasonable prices.

We have been staying at Milky Way since about 2007 and have dined here many, many times and three times this trip. This time we have my sister and brother-in-law joining us and on every occasion we have left so well fed on the best...Fish and Chips. Fresh Kingfish, chips and a lovely side salad. We have also had the meat options, fish combo and calamari - all generous serves and delicious. Good selection of drinks served by great staff. Thank youMore

Unfortunately I cannot rate the food nor the atmosphere, as my family and I were turned away. A few weeks before our trip to LHI, I made 2 reservations by phone for 2 different nights. I followed up 2 days before our flight to confirm...our reservations and was told that all was good. The first night we were due to dine there was the day we were arriving on the island. Unfortunately, our flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems which we were informed about once we were on the tarmac in the bus taking us to the plane. I immediately got in touch with this restaurant and explained that I will have to cancel that night's dinner as we were not going to make it to the island, BUT we still wanted to keep the second night that had been booked. I left this message on their answering machine as no one answered the phone. The night of the dinner, the 16th of April 2021, we arrived at the restaurant and were promptly told that there was no reservation for my family. No one higher up than the waitress was able to speak to us. I asked her to double check the reservations and once again she apologised and confirmed that our booking did not exist. I asked if a table could be set up in a corner somewhere for my family of 3 and once again was told that it was not feasible BUT there was a picnic table that was outside of the covered area that we could sit at and order takeaway. It was not the most pleasant of nights, we wanted to dine-in and the mosquitoes would be making a meal out of us. We refused the offer and asked if we could get a lift back into town - as this is the custom whereby the hotel one stays at, drives you to the restaurant and the restaurant returns you back to your hotel after your visit. Disgusting service or should I say 'lack' of service from this restaurant. Think twice before making any reservations - they confirm, then when you arrive, it's pot-luck whether you will be able to dine there.More

Dined here early on during a recent stay on LHI, and had no interest in returning for another meal. The menu was not terribly adventurous and we both ordered the local kingfish, which came with chips and nothing else. It was OK. Service was well-meaning...if a bit clumsy. I was bumped on the head with a plate at one point (for which the waiter was very apologetic!). Maybe this was because the indoors part of the restaurant was quite crowded, with tables cramped close together. The wine was reasonably priced, although wine list itself not extensive. Desserts were utterly forgettable.More

Ordered take away fish and chips which you can only do at times that suite the restaurant. $35 each. Well okay I have a bit of a thing about Fish and Chip shops, see my other posts. I thought well maybe it's one of those...places that surprises you. Well it certainly did that! The order came in a "large" container, maybe they load you up, I thought. But, no! When I opened the lid about third of it was taken up with a container of coleslaw! There were three pieces of fish, which combined makes up about half of what I get from my local. The chips were about the size of a small Maca's serve with about a quarter of them being nothing more than the fried end bits of the batter. And get this, nothing to eat the coleslaw with, we only discovered that after we'd ridden off. And here's a free tip I'll give you guys. Try frying the fish after you put the batter on it, it comes out much better. From a business perspective if you don't want to do take away don't do it. But whatever you do do has to be better than this. .More

Good food and wine. Only open for dinner 2-3 times a week so important to ask your accommodation to book for you before you fly. Restaurant staff drive you home on completion of the meal. They also do takeaway.

Went for tea. Ride our bikes to the restaurant. Seating outside was pleasant. Inside was very casual camp style dining area with white plastic chairs and timber tables. The meals were reasonably priced according to the island standards. The standard of the meal was fair...at best. Rather tasteless and soggy fish with very small serving size which I didn’t finish due to the taste and texture. Really disappointing as I looked forward to sampling the local King fish and left most on the plate. Wont return.More
