It's one of those restaurants on Lord Howe that's only operating during the warmer months. It looks and feels improvised. Food is average, service by some teenagers is hit and miss. You can watch the food scraps being discarded into bins while you have your meal, if that's your thing. It wasn't ours.

Staying at The Milky Way we ate at at the Beachouse on the Moon twice in the week. Steak was great and the seafood good also. Menu is extensive and well priced, especially comparitavely on the island. The staff were friendly and very accomodating.

Had dinner here recently. Food was really good and the serving size very generous. Service was friendly and attentive. Only open twice a week but if you are on Lord Howe I would highly recommend it.

A serious dissappointment in just about every way, would recommend avoiding at all costs. - Cheap decor and poor atmosphere - extremely noisy, making conversation next to impossible. Empty plates being scraped off into a bucket close to the side door. - Very limited menu, no healthy or quality option for the meal. - Huge waits for the food, upwards... More

Like most places on Lord Howe Island, the restaurant was readily accessible from our accommodation. The food was of the highest quality and we enjoyed the dining experience

Very friendly staff. Good choice of meals with a fantastic salad bar to accompany the meal. They even provide transport home on completion of the meal.

Beach house on the Moon was not the quietest, but certainly the best value for dinner. Good, tasty home-style cooking and very generous portions. The salad bar was also good value. Friendly, attentive staff. Sad it is only open Monday's and Friday's. Ensure to book ahead.

This is such an old LHI establishment we just had to eat here. The food was very good and the portions very generous - good hearty, tasty food. I had the lamb curry (as a change from fish) and it was delicious. Happy, friendly service in a beautiful location.

We ate nowhere but Pinetrees - and the food was outstanding! Hats off to the chef. The service is also excellent.

Great choice of food and a very popular restaurant. Staff are efficient, friendly and enjoy what they are doing. Although eating out is generally good anywhere on the island, I would rate Beachhouse on the Moon as my number one choice.
