There were many choices of burger on the menu. The quality of food was good. It served both beer and drink. Have an excellent view of the sea which is on the opposite of the beach front road. Atmosphere is relaxing.

Wonderful place overlooking the water in Dili. Terrific breakfasts served by very friendly staff. Wonderful cool drinks overlooking the evening sunsets. We enjoyed two music evenings which really were a lot of fun. I'll be back.
