Don't let anyone tell you this is a cafe. When we went there was no coffee or food. Bar only and pretty basic at that. Also priced about the same as hotel. We walked in spoke to the bar man then walked out. Not worth stopping for

What a surprise it was to visit this cafe. It was a positive surprise for the food as it was good and the service was adequate. The sad surprise (shock) was viewing the poor animals in cages in squalid conditions.

With a nice setting on the water, this cafe could be so much more. There is a well covered open air downstairs and a second lovely deck. The food (what they have is decent).

My family visit Francis and his family every time we fly into Solo, great place, with excellent food, owned and operated by real Solomon Islanders who know how to cater for all visitors, get down there and have a cold Solbrew, even hit the Kava. The best places to chill in Honiara. Cookie, Ellam and Pete

Had a piece of chocolate cake with Mocha Latte. The ocean view was great as well as the cool evening breeze. You can have solbrew beer and relax while watching the sunset.

This new and not huge restaurant is located right at the water's edge so you watch the ocean and the port while enjoying a delicious smoothy or lunch. It's a bit hard to find but every one knows where it is.

Nice place but be early - if late lunch often sold out for the most popular dishes. Great location With mini zoo behind birds and crocodiles - oceanside dolphin and pelicans. Friendly staff.

This place is hell on earth for the imprisoned and abused animals. It cannot be allowed to continue. If this place depicts the feeling of the Solomon Islands then tourism will rapidly deplete.

This place has a poor dolphin held captive in appalling conditions which made the food and other services seem terribe

Disgusting place advocating slavery and torturing of animals, who are being kept in squalor. I was physically SICK when I saw what was going on there.
