Always eat on the beach. The ambiance is unbeatable. This is one of the few places that serves guacamole. Fantastic.

We came here to have a drink and eat one night and it was so good we return the next day. It was a the other end of the beach from where we were staying but it's a nice walk and nothing is very far. They have those cool sun-beds to relax and have drinks, and you can eat there... More

Had the traditional rice and curry - 5 different varieties and they were great! We requested coconut sambal witch was not a part of the dish and it was no problem changing one dish. Service was fast and polite. Can definitely recommend!

We have been back for an evening meal and a lunch after visiting here last year. The food and service as good as last time and quite easy on the pocket.

On top of that the music was dire, and there was little atmosphere. Shame, as it has potential being on the beach, but in reality it was a half assed effort not worthy... More

They make a great passion fruit mojito, the food is delicious and the staff are super friendly! It's got a chilled vibe, where you can enjoy the sunset and drink into the evening. I loved it so much I went back 3 times.
