They have a huge menu with all different kinds of seafood. Food is very spicy but also very delicious. Only took 5-10 minutes until the food was ready. It's also nice to sit at the beachfront.

Love the location, right on the beach with seats built into the rocks. Great for a drinks at night with music playing, but not always reggae! On Tuesdays and Thursdays there is a fire show which was brilliant. Very relaxing place.

Always a good place to stop for some liquid refreshments. The place is nice and the drinks are cold which is the preferred drink for a hot and humid day at Kata.
