We ate here two nights and two mornings while staying on the property. The food was great and the restaurant is in a beautiful location. The open air nature meant that we could see the rainforest and hear the birds while dining.

This place is probably one of the nicer places to eat in the area. It's open air and the fire lanterns were nice. The food also tasted good. I just found the portions small and the insects were bothering me through out the meal. I...More
