VERY laid-back, on a corner of a main road, very touristy, would recommend drinks and a visit to the adjacent shop/gallery. Very friendly staff.

The menu is ok, but the service is bit slow. We also choose to have cocktails on the bar, so you get your cocktail 30 minutes after you order.

We were there everyday for the ice cream and coffee as it's strategically located on the beach. Had the buffet lunch one day after diving, but was very disappointed. Skip the lunch, stick to the ice cream and coffee.

The s reason could be that the food was perhaps not as freshly cooked & had been lying there for a long time. The fish barbecue was nice though. However, my favorite had to be the Mango... More

We had dinner her on new year 2017. It's one of the best buffet we had on the tour. The variety is unlimited and the atmosphere is calming. After a dip in the ocean, this is the place to catch a magical cocktail and a meal to revive your energy.

The day menu is very basic, only a couple of creole dishes (basic curry) and no fresh fruits. Quite disappointing considering that the place has such a good reputation. Service takes for ever.

Good & extensive creole buffet with large salad bar/startes and BBQ options as well as local curry & vegetables. Pudding options very sweet but the crushed coconut as delicious.Bargain on the price esp if you area group.
