We had dinner here - 2 adults, 2 children. The food was good, fresh. The Thai food was better than the western/Italian dishes. Good cocktails

We came here thinking it was a sushi place but it was more of a cooked food place that also serves Italian food. I had a spicy tuna roll and was a little disappointed to find out that it had tuna fish in it instead of raw tuna. I did see other people order rolls with raw fish though so... More

The sushi was honestly the best I've had here, we ordered off the specials menu and everything was fresh. Chef checked on us and staff were cordial. Atmosphere relaxed beach, eclectic decor. Really liked the lava cake. On main road off beachfront. Sign outside not very visible, but waze app took us straight there.

We used to visit The Red Snapper when it was on the other side of the street. Then it was a great little place with good food, service and athmosphere. Not any more. We just re-visited the place and were very disappointed. Not close to the standard we were used to. 1. The fish was totally over cooked - we... More

Although Red Snapper just had one vegetarian item, it's worth a mention. The avocado sushi was yummy & well prepared.

We found ourselves here after reading a couple of reviews on trip advisor. The vibe/food is great and reasonably priced.
