ate this on the fourth night. I felt that this is one of the better restaurants on the tiny island. I think it is quite cheap too. We spent around USD15 each, buffet price plus a drink. The staff would light the candle on the occupied tables, so if you see a lit candle, try not to sit there.

Came here for dinner for our first night on the island as this was the place to be. The restaurant only does buffet and it is $10 per person without tax and without drinks. the range of food is international but limited choice. while quality is nice the dessert selection was poor and overall the buffet is unimpressive only focused on an international selection with no local food. I am not sure why the restaurant got such great reviews but once was enough.

They offer buffet every evening with a different theme. In our opinion it could be a little bit more (for a Buffet we are used to) but It tastes very good and the tables are directly at the beach between the trees. It is very romantic at night and it only costs 10 $. The Drinks are not included!
