The place is beautifully decorated and has an explendid view of the ocean. There is quite a big choice of food ranging from international to local. I'll say the biggest highlight is the fresh seafood. The tuk tuk didn't enter the road as it is...More

This restaurant does not really look like much from outside. It gives the vibe of a cheapish beach bar, but could that first impression not be more wrong. It is laid back and it is at the beach, but in all its positive senses. Waiters...More

Hi Sabrina- Thanks for the great review. Unfortunately most of our goods are imported from South Africa and we pay a big surcharge for goods having to be transported from there. Best regards Rob Parker

A great place right on the beach. Perfect for meals and drinks with a sea view and watching the boats, dhows and water sports. Accommodation is clean and comfortable. Bar and kitchen service is very slow though and could do with improvement.
