We ate here twice and both times the food was delicious. You need to book as it does get very busy and the very fact that it's busy does make it a touch noisy. It's right on the harbour overlooking all the super yachts. We found it pretty good value and our servers were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.

This is a good. Italian styled restaurant with good service and good choice. The wine list seems to be common across the restaurants and is extensive and reasonable (much better than we found at Port Douglas' Sheraton

Very popular and lovely food. Would recommend. For us it was a little too noisy and on a very humid night the lack of fans made for a swealtering evening. However, don't let this put you off. The food and location overlooking the marina is great.

Food was OK but did not match the price or service. Main courses over 35, plain bread costed 8,50 and coffee 5, water 4 per person. We were disappointed.

We had a wonderful meal at Romano's. We booked through the Hamilton Island App. We had tremendous service, our waiter Ben was very attentive. Wonderful food, if a little overpriced. Spectacular view over the marina. Definitely recommend going at sunset to watch the sun go down over the water.

If you are hungry after a big day of watersports go to get fish n chips or pizza. This place is good quality but expensive. The food was quite good but don't expect fantastic. Classier restaurant so would be good for adults night out without the kids.

Lovely position on the quay side and well looked after by the staff who were friendly and efficient. The starter and main course were excellent particularly the risotto and the tagliatelle although there are only a few options on the menu. Portion sizes were more than we have experienced in other restaurants serving Italian style food. We enjoyed it but... More

We had dinner here and the restaurant was pumping. We went through the menu and I loved every plate put down in front of me (and those put down in front of others!). We didn't wait long for our food to appear and the time between courses was perfect, giving us enough time to get ready for the next plate... More

Great table on the outside verandah overlooking the marina. Good service with nice food albeit with fairly limited choice

We ate here for our final night on Hamilton Island. This is a busy place, so you will definitely need reservations. There were five of us and we ordered it all - breads, arancini, seafood, wild boar ragu, chicken, risotto. Everything was very good. Service was a bit slow at first, but picked up soon after our appetizers were served.... More
