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...

Hello Bill, I just wanted to write a quick note to tell you how much I really appreciated your help in coordination and how much we enjoyed our trip to Yap and Palau. The Manta Ray Bay was a gorgeous resort and we had so much fun visiting! I really enjoyed the people that worked there, the visibility was fabulous, and the staff some of the friendliest. I am very thankful for your help in making one of our dive trips to the Micronesia area some of the best diving that weve ever had. Thanks again! P.S. Alex was fabulous!!!
