This is a wonderful beach front restaurant, casual and relaxed, but it's not a beach bar, so don't turn up in your swimwear with a sarong! Wonderful fresh fish and seafood, good wine and charming service. Obviously all of the above does not come cheap...More

The staff are the best part of this resturant. This place is extremely busy! Yet they try their hardest to fit you in and accommodate you. Be careful if you get carried away ordering as the bill can easily rack up high. The large prawns...More

I don't know if there is a children's menu but while I have seen kids there I don't associate it with a place I would take kids. It is a little too expensive and the ambiance if definitely more adult
