The restaurant was our local because we stayed at Manuia. Sand floor and a great menu. There are really good daily specials and great cocktails. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Great for sunsets, very romantic if you want it to be or social.

Staff were extremely attentive and friendly, food was sensational. I loved the sand floor restaurant and how close we were to the ocean, literally on the beach. The sunsets were spectacular. Cocktails a must. Highly recommend OTB!

In a quite stunning beachfront location which provides real South Pacific ambience. The predominantly seafood menu is quite excellent as are the serving staff. Particular mention of Gabby, a very nice gentle man
