Wine & Dine
Simple and relaxed, Salt Water Restaurant is in an idyllic setting, allowing you to take full advantage of the 180-degree ocean views whilst enjoying the stunning food inspired by the freshest local produce from the waters around the island and from the hinterland of the mainland – much of which arrives on daily flights.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served at Salt Water with menus changing daily.
With 24 beaches to select from, you can select your own picnic basket content the night before and then following day, take your picnic by a private dinghy and motor to a beach of your choice, or have one of our Marine team drop you off and return later to collect you at a predetermined time.
The true luxury of this signature Lizard Island experience is that you will have your chosen beach to yourselves.
Private beach picnics are included in your Lizard Island stay.
Two private beach pavilions sit on Anchor bay – each commanding spectacular views of the nightly sunsets. Prior to your dinner, you will meet with our Executive Chef to discuss and design the 7-course degustation menu with accompanying wines. Be sure to reserve early as these are one of the most popular dining experiences on the island and book out early
In the evening, enjoy pre-dinner drinks at Driftwood where you get the chance to reconnect with others you may have met throughout the day – or – simply enjoy a drink watching the sun set.
Lizard Island wine and beverage list is inclusive in your stay – however – if you wish to select from the much acclaimed Cellar list – there will be an additional charge.
When you arrive at the Marlin Bar it is like stepping back in time – as the Bar remains almost untouched from its original rustic style and ambience that has thrilled sailors, guests and deep sea fishermen since the 1970’s.
One concession to this has been the introduction of a wood fire pizza oven; we invite you to enjoy a stroll down the boardwalk and enjoy authentic pizza and a glass of wine in this iconic location. Marlin Bar opens on select nights only – so please check with staff.
