Great little place for a casual lunch. Nice view of lagoon and outside. Service and food so so.... if it wasn't on the ocean would probably not return. Will be ok during peak season as it can't get over crowded!

We were rushed by staff to leave, the bill was brought over as soon as we finished dinner(9pm on a Friday night?)I assume the kitchen closes, but they could have offered dessert or drinks after the meal.

Music was awesome when we were there, kind of reflected the laid back vibe there. We just came in for some snacks and ordered the garlic and feta pita, hummus and mussels - everything was delicious!... More

My wife and I dropped in at Friday Island for a quick dinner. The restaurant has very funky decor and is perfectly located for sundowners.

This place had a real unusual vibe to it - in a good way, very relaxed and laid back, but that said the food was excellent and the service good. We both had the fish special which was delicious and the carrot cake to follow, yummy too!
