On the iconic 75 acre Oyster Island in Espiritu Santo, this is a truly charming island dining experience. The restaurant showcases the best of Santo’s organic produce, with fresh locally caught fish and seafood and Santo organic aged beef. With no set times for meals, you can have lobster for breakfast and poached eggs for dinner if you wish.
Dinning at Oyster is not only about the food, but the whole experience. The cutest barge will pick you up from the mainland and after perhaps the most scenic five minutes of your life, crossing the serene azure bay punctured by little islands, you will land on the sandy shores of Oyster Island. Low key, built using island materials, you truly feel that you are in the South Pacific. It is simply gorgeous. Oyster’s ‘Original’ Sunday All-U-Can-Eat lunch buffet is back, featuring the very popular Marcel’s Chocolate Beef Short Ribs and much more. Usually booked days in advance, reservations are essential. In peak season, the Island Nights are spectacular.
The new Oyster Island Yacht Club Bar is now open and perfect for afternoon sunset drinks. The Resort welcomes day guests so you can enjoy all that the island has to offer. The restaurant is open from 7am to 8.30pm. Check Oyster Island Facebook page www.facebook.com/OysterIsland. Ph 7782773.
