I have had several meals at Vaima over the years but think the food and service is tops at the moment. Staff are friendly and interact well with dinners without be intrusive. Can't recommend high enough.

Although we didn't stay for food, the waitress was helpful with a great smile and tasty cocktails right on the beach with sands under your feet!

Beautiful setting right on the beach and very romantic too. Lovely sunsets but unfortunately we felt the food was overpriced for what it was. Felt the meals 'over promised and under delivered'.

This Restuarant serves delicious food in a very relaxing setting along the beachfront. They were very accommodating without a booking.

Just great at the beach for a nice sunset and a perfect drink. Can be very romantic but also great for groups. The meals are very tasty and we even enjoyed two dinners at Vaima because we liked the service and location so much....

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the ambience was conducive for quite dinner even though the place was almost full. Sitting outside in a beautiful night was fantastic. Delicious Ika Mata.

We are situated right on the beach. Imagine sitting on the beach with the sun setting, sipping your favourite cocktail and enjoying some of the best cuisine on the island - how romantic! We also offer a pizza take away service - forget the cooking - enjoy our pizza in your room/hotel or just sit on the beach with your feet in the water enjoying the food. We can cater for small private functions and weddings. Look forward to seeing you at the Vaima. We recommend that families book between 5.30 and 6.30 pm.
