The Mnuw is the most unique restaurant and bar in Micronesia if not the world. She is a 170ft (55m) Phinisi schooner from Indonesia with 3 dining decks, 2 bars and her kitchen all on board. Start your day with a gorgeous sunrise during breakfast. Or, unwind after a full day of activities with a cold beer or tropical beverage while swapping sea stories.

The Manta Ray Restaurant

Imagine, rough-hewn beams and floors, teak walls, wall sconces, cozy nooks, the wooden aroma and decoration of times gone by, intimate lighting, now you can "feel" our Restaurant.

Located on the main deck of the "SV Mnuw", our very own hundred year old South Seas Schooner, enjoy the fine view through panoramic windows and then let us pamper you.

The food is inspired by Asian, local and European recipes with generous portions which are both wholesome and delicious. Daily delights such as homemade pizza, hamburgers and cheeseburgers and fresh fish sandwiches can be found on the daily menu.

A delicious "finger food" is the "Yap Wrap" - grated tapioca mixed with spicy pork or chicken and wrapped and backed in a banana leaf. Home made succulent deserts and ice cream creations add to the overall dining experience.

Top this off with our very own micro brewed beer from our very own Stone Money Brewing Company and you begin to understand why this restaurant is a hard to leave venue.

The Crow's Nest Bar

On the roomy top deck of the Mnuw is our "Crows Nest Bar," and there's no finer place to imbibe a bit in the open air overlooking the sea. It is a great place to end a day of diving, sipping on a tropical beverage prepared right before your eyes or a tasty stone Money brew on tap. We serve our full menu from the restaurant up here as well.

On the GIGANTIC movie screen, we often show a mixture of Yap's finest diving, guest productions and mainstream movies. There's nothing quite like watching a movie outside, on the deck of a schooner, on a tropical island, with a nice cold beverage after a day of breathtaking diving.

In our guests own words...

Dear Bill, I want to send you and your entire staff a HUGE thank you for a fabulous stay. It was entirely too short, which just prompts me to want to return. Jan ran an amazing dive shop, and having Alex as my dive guide for the manta dive was very rewarding. Thank you for the extra special care you insured for my stay. The Taro Leaf Spa, as well as the restaurant and bar were all great experiences. Have a fabulous year in 2010. I hope to return to Yap within the year.
