This place is patronized by the unorganized tourism. Destination management Companies do not use it regularly Food is relatively good but not continuously More popular for fresh sea food

This Restaurant is popular with the Tour Guides who bring the Tourists for a meal. While there is a wide variety in the menu, the food is tasy and well presented , it is average and expensive. Poor ambience and service needs to imrpove

The food is tasty and well prepared though it is a bit expensive when compared with other restaurants in the South beach areas. Have been coming to this place for food for the last 10 years.

Food is not good and prices are high. You should say NO to your driver if he wants to bring you here. Simply a tourist trap.

We were also brought here by a tuk tuk driver. Waited for half an hour just fof drinks and deserts. The dessert was embarrassing.. And the price even worse..
