We arrive around 5:30 to get a good table for the sunset( no reservations) as there really is only one good table. It was already taken but thankfully the customer left not long after and we jumped on it. Just a relaxing special place. The...More

Three of us went here before the sunset and although it took about an hour or more to get our food, it was worth the wait. Don't go expecting service from a normal restaurant and you will have a great time (there really is no...More

This place is so different to anywhere we've been before, no electricity, dinner by candlelight and delicious food. You should be patient as the food takes a while to come but it is worth the wait. Absolute gem!
