Not too expensive, being in the middle of town. Location is nice enough. Very touristy place. With a local population of 90% colored people, there are almost only whites seen there for dinner. The food is mediocre.

We had breakfast here one morning. A nice variety and delicious! Nice location to have breakfast then check out the floating market.

Ate there several times both lunch and dinner time. Food is very good for casual eating, decent price. Fast but still very friendly service.

Located next to the pedestrian bridge the locals call “the swinging old lady” right on the canal. They have tons of tables with umbrellas overlooking the port, canal and bridge. We only had drinks, while we took in the view. A must for all tourists.
