Moana Restaurant and Bar
Moana Restaurant and Bar is a seafood-focused dining spot located within the Capri on Via Roma precinct at Isle of Capri. Owned by New Zealand celebrity chef Alex Kaihea, Moana Restaurant and Bar melds the best local seafood with the flavours of the Pacific Rim. The menu, driven heavily by fresh catches straight from the local trawlers, starts with smaller bites like seafood chowder, fresh king-prawn cocktails, baby octopus barbecued in lemon, garlic and olive oil, and pan-fried scallops with basil-champagne cream. There’s a selection of mussels and oysters in various flavour combinations, plus crustaceans (think lobster, bugs and black-tiger prawns), seafood pastas and risottos, as well as eye-catching dishes like the yellow-fin tuna wrapped in calamari served atop squid-ink fettuccine. To experience the true tastes of the Pacific Rim, consider dishes like the Tongan ‘ota ika’, a delicate arrangement of snapper fillets marinated in lime, cucumber, capsicum, spring onion and coconut cream with taro chips.
