Arajilla is amazing - the service is excellent, the set-up is lovely and the food is something altogether. The menu gave a relatively good choice of meals but the fish would be their specialty. Keep up the good work folks.

Arajilla's restaurant is quite beautifully set up and the staff were all excellent. The food was very good although not extraordinary . It was expensive and unfortunately as all guests had finished their meals by 9 pm we were encouraged to leave as they were dropping us back to our accommodation. We would have loved to have lingered a little... More

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

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
