We were not staying at this resort, but the staff were so friendly to us, we returned often. They knew our names after our first visit. The menu is varied and all the food was delicious. It was my favorite local restaurant on Muri Beach.

During our vacation we were based at the Muri Beach Club Hotel where the Restaurant is based so we had the opportunity to have several dinners here. I strongly suggest the Island night (our was on Wednesday) and the "Pig and Prawn" (on Friday). Also standard menu is good not wide but fish plate are great (especially the tuna sushimi)... More

We decided to go full-on-tourist, and went to the Muri Beach Club Hotel's Island Night at the Silver Sands. We're glad we did. First, the room is very pleasant, with seating for about 50, the pool on one side, and the lagoon and beach on the other. Ceiling fans and ocean breezes keep it very cool. The welcome was warm,...

We stayed at the Hotel that SilverSands is located. The ribs, steak, prawns and Thai soup was delish! Other food was decent but nothing to write home about. Service was good, some waitresses seemed bored and uninterested.

Pig and prawn night This is a must. Set up to be a sharing meal with your partner or a group. The pork ribs were marinated in the most flavoursome sauce and the meat was melt in your mouth. Great wine selection. The dessert was the best mousse I have ever had. With a hint of ginger it was smooth... More

So this is the not first time that I have dined on Friday's Pig and Prawn night. I did not write a review, however, last week I visited with a friend of mine.

We stayed at Muri Beach for a week over New Year and had the pleasure of eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at SilverSands over the course of the trip. The daily menu for dinner consists of small plates at around $15, and they encourage you to get a few to share. Everything we had - lamb curry, gnocci, fish, steak... More
