We ate at the Sands a couple of times during our visit. Friendly staff and good to have a laugh with. Plenty of choices on the menu. The local pork roll was my favorite and also loved the spaghetti carbonara.

Best food on Raro without a doubt. Ate here every one of the 4 nights on the island. The Chicken curry dish and the fish curry dish are the best on the island! Do not miss this simple but very nice restaurant!

We really enjoyed our meal here - the chef was kind enough to make a vegetarian curry for one of our group, and we loved the pizzas. Nice casual relaxed dining with yummy food.

I wouldn't rave about the food here but it wasn't too bad and not too expensive. My wife and I shared a chicken curry ($24) and a Hawaiian pizza ($20). They had tables and seating out on the beach front but we were told they...More
