We were staying a minute's walk away, so the Coral cafe became our local lunch stop. Good selection of sambos, hot and cold rolls, and usually a yummy special of the day.

I enjoyed the coffee and cafe. The setting at the side of the museum was good on the verandah with a palm garden. Definitely would recommend for coffee and cake.

We ate lunch and dinner here on a few occasions. The meals were of a very good quality (tasty and fresh) and good quantity. In comparison to other eating places on the island the cost was also good. Quick and friendly service. Self-serve water as much as you want!

Second night in LHI and we chose the Coral Cafe for dinner as its only open a few nights a week. The friendly staff had us seated in a jif and a drink in hand whilst reviewing the menu. Service was great and the food fantastic also. Seafood curry was excellent, dessert also.
