We went there for spending some nice time at the beach and grabbing a small lunch. We ordered a Sandwich with salad on the side and were served fries instead. As we didn't want to make a mountain out of a molehill we didn't complain....More

Spent a couple of nights here drinking lion beer in a perfect setting, was a brilliant bar, staff were very lovely, played music and it was so nice to be around dogs that were cared for so well and the puppies made my night!

We are a family of 6 and stopped here 4 times over our 5 day stay in Mirissa. Great staff who were very friendly and kind to our kids. The food was very tasty and service fantastic. Cocktails were brilliant! Can't fault this place.

Happy hour cocktails from 4pm-10pm and fresh fish cooked to order right on the beach. This is pretty standard for Mirissa. The thing that makes this place stand out is the relaxed and fun atmosphere... the food was tasty and the drinks exceptionally good value....More

We popped into this bar/restaurant many times during our week in Mirissa. Cocktails and drinks were half price as it was the off season, but food, although cooked and presented well, was very over priced.

Stopped here for breakfast ( we were hailed in by the main waiter so we had no real choice!). We settled for the traditional breakfast of toast,fruit, eggs and tea. All of these were good and the pot of tea was massive. Sunbeds and happy...More

We visited a few times during our stay in Mirissa for lunch and dinner. Drinks were always cold, view gorgeous, service good. The food was probably average until one night when we chose our own fresh fish and had it cooked for us. That meal,...More
