Food and service was very good. Probably rate as the best dinner we had on the island. Fish was cooked perfectly. Good wine list. Popular so must book ahead I’d recommend.

Had 2 lunches and 1 dinner. Looks great at night so different to the day. Very friendly and helpful staff and a good selection of food which is very different from what I expected with many Asian influenced dishes very well done to their style....The coffee is probably not a highlight but otherwise very highly recommended for breakfast lunch or dinner and they serve wine as well.More

We had a couple of meals at Coral Cafe, customer service is great from very friendly staff and the food is very good. We had local Kingfish, dumplings, squid and steak at various times and all were excellent. Steve and his team do a great...job.More

We had dinner here on one night where my husband had the curry and I had the grilled kingfish. Both meals were of a high standard.

While breakfast was a bit average, dinner was really good. With minimal dining options it books out very quickly. It’s not open every night. Nice atmosphere. Unfortunately the Malaysian special was sold out by the time we got there but look out for these.

We managed to book this restaurant for dinner on our last night on the island. It was delicious food; I had the kingfish, my husband had the chicken maryland and my son had the prawn linguine - yum! We topped off our tasty meal with...sumptuous sticky date pudding and some of the nicest crème brule we've tasted. Get in early and book, you don't want to miss out as it is an intimate space with room for only a few.More

We had lunch at the Coral Cafe a couple of times, unfortunately it was already fully booked on the two or three nights when we tried to book for dinner. Lunches were always good, solid cafe fare - burgers, salads, foccaccias, frittata - fresh ingredients,...nicely presented and reasonably priced. In fact, in my view, this cafe offers the most reasonably priced, best-value meals on LHI. Coffee here was pretty good, though not quite as good as at the Anchorage - but then it's significantly dearer there too!More

We stopped by for lunch and lovely veggie options for me. Great coffees too. Stop by between walking/cycling and meet some great staff too.

Started each morning for the week with a hearty breakfast with Steven and his staff at the Coral Cafe. Good selection of food, well prepared and also a real coffee to get the day started. Had dinner there on a couple of nights and it...was great to have a Asian meal one night. Would highly recommend.More
