The restaurant was very nice and relaxed although it did have a bit of a crowd around the bar. The food was good as was the service but then there are numerous excellent dining options around the island and this one fell short of excellent..

This was at the resort we stayed at (only opens at 3pm). Staff were very friendly and food very good the only thing i would say is that there wasn't a lot of choice on the menu, what was there was very nice though.

We dined here as the night markets were closed and we fancied a pizza. The woman serving was hopeless, when she delivered the drinks on a tray she just stood there and waited for us to grab the drinks ourselves which we found amusing. The pizza was ok but as others have mentioned the wait time is ridiculous and many... More

There were six of us visited this restaurant. One couple ordered fish and received nice food, another pizza which tasted nothing like satay chicken and two opted for a tapas type of food which was burnt and inedible. A very disappointing night. There is no atmosphere and the staff were not very accommodating.

This restaurant is terrible, no atmosphere, ok service and terrible food. We ordered Tapas and it was all frozen food deep fried way too much so that everything was almost burnt and had no taste except for oil that obviously needed changing

We were an unbooked group of 7. The staff were marvellous, finding extra ingredients to make sure we could all have the same cocktail. The pizzas were delicious!

We went here first on the day we arrived, then back for drinks and "island fries" again.Quite enjoyed the setting by the pool there. The resort looked very nice and intimate (we stayed elsewhere nearby). Would go back.

Went only for happy hour and tapas. Although the alcohol was reasonably priced the tapas were very average (straight out of the deep fryer and bland), we were eaten alive (only time this happened in three weeks on the island) and only diners, which has to tell you something. We were able to observe most of the guests heading out... More

2-for-1 cocktail our worthwhile. Service is average, likewise the food... a lot of it deep fried. On the plus side, we ordered a child portion of chicken salad which was very generous, fresh and full of the fresh salad vegetables we were craving. The Thai fish cakes resembled ice hockey pucks in consistency (and possibly flavour!). The other dish we... More
