We were in-house guests, but as we hired a rental car, we didn’t eat at the resort much. To my eye the menu was slightly pricy (mains 2450V - 3650V; a poke bowl for lunch is 2450 or lunch of fish and chips is 2500).
I did enjoy wahoo on cous cous littered with dried fruit and nuts. The kumala gnocchi was very well handled with a delicate pan-fry and a compelling creamy coconut, walnut and herb sauce.
We also tried the baked poulet in banana leaf which was nice against the coconut and lemongrass sauce but for my taste the fish was overcooked and lacked interest. We had the same dish at Tamanu on the Beach and they managed to get a smokier finish and included some fat (maybe chicken skin) in the parcel that really improved flavour against more delicately cooked fish.
The restaurant’s aspect is beautiful. Service is warm and friendly, and much quicker than their resort neighbour. Guests are offered beach seating, but at the first sprinkling of rain staff offer to move you under shelter with good humour whatever you reply.
