Lizard Island (Great Barrier Reef, Australia)

While I'm reminiscing about my honeymoon in Australia several years ago (see post on this board today about Alice Springs and Yulara), I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who's recently been to Lizard Island, the isolated resort at the north end of the Great Barrier Reef in north Queensland. We thought the food was great there (very fresh and lots of fabulous fruits we'd never seen before, which is sort of amazing since the provender pretty much all comes in by weekly barge).

Since we've been, the place has undergone an extensive restoration (and the rates have been raised dramatically from the already-high tariffs we paid), but a recent write-up in the American Express "Departures" magazine was surprisingly downbeat about the food. I'd love to hear any first-hand (or even hearsay) opinions.
