We regularly enjoyed some cocktails at this restaurant, I can highly recommend the strawberry daiquiri. Can't rate the food as we did not have any.

had a delicious seafood platter here on new years day, fresh ingredients either cooked or served well. the service was good, the bar manager/waiter was friendly, helpful and made a nice cocktail. my only comment would be that the fish cake entree was not as fresh as the main.

Good choice of meals and not too expensive. Chef happy to cater too dietary requirements. Service a wee bit slow but it's island time! Happy to set up a big table for our group.

The atmosphere around pool side was relaxing. The evening menu choice was first class. It was so good, we returned two days latter, which was our last night on the Island. Service was very good.

when is it open? We (4) were staying close by and tried for breakfast, lunch & dinner to no avail. The place looked deserted. Without guests, and the restaurant was closed with the sign inside the door. Maybe next time....... Go expecting you might have to choose somewhere else.

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.
