We had a great fish meal. The catch of the day looked great and the four of us grabbed it. The meal was slow; and drinks including water took 30 minutes to arrive. We had breakfast there and another meal that did not match the first noght.

Didn't get a chance to try the food but I did try the mojito and it was very strong! just how I like it. It's right on the beach so the views are nice.

Very good service (the waitress waived us down the next day to give back the flip-flops we had left behind). Perfect spot to watch activities on the beach.

We had lunch here twice and the food, view and beers were great. Well worth a visit and cheaper than a lot of other restaurants. Staff friendly and you can eat with your feet in the sand

I ate there almost everyday during my stay. Cheap, fresh from the ocean, wonderful. Only drawback in a muslim country with no white wine in an all seafood restaurant.

The fish meals are nice. When we went they put all the fish on a table and you just pointed at the one which appeals more to you. A basic, but tasty fish meal with fresh fish. Friendly staff. One drawback when we were there, especially if you are under the roof, is all the flies. I have never seen... More
