Great location but no atmosphere and very average food. Seems to have lost it's way since our first visit in 2016. Very expensive for an average meal. Poor service.

The staff make the dinning experience very enjoyable and memorable. They are professional, friendly and fast. The food is to die for. It is worth every bite. I will definitely dine at Cin Cin again when I'm in Bim.

Agreed, about 20 minutes in a taxi. Super restaurant in a brilliant location. Make sure you book in advance and request a terrace table.

We always recommend making a reservation but we also welcome walk-ins. We might not always be able to offer tables, especially sea side tables, to walk-ins but we usually have some space at the bar for small parties.
