Tlked to the chef and he knows that I am a serious foodie so expect good food like last year but totally disappointed with rather bland cooking. Maybe this guy is no.2 chef?

We ate here twice and the food was fresh and fast and delicious! They delivered our second dinner to our accomodation in less than 10 minutes - very impressive.

We dined with friends. The views are great if you go before sunset - can't see much after dark. The service was good, attentive refilling glasses, etc and the food was delivered in a timely manner. We ordered a series of dishes which came out on a regular basis. The food was delicious, my brother and friend particularly liked the... More

I live in Vila and visited on my birthday last week with my wife and son. The staff was friendly, but as my main arrived, I discovered a dead beetle in the middle of my chicken (hidden under prawn crackers I'd already given my son to eat). I discreetly pointed it out to the staff and said nothing else about... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and it was a great disappointment. Went with kids. They ate but our meals just didn't turn up. We left after 90mins having not eaten!

The food here is excellent. We ate here 3 years ago and again this trip and it is consistently good. Service is very good too. Will go back again when next in Vila.
