The food at this resturant was lovely and all for a good cause. Perhaps not the cheapest- but hard to dispute paying money for lovely food and to help people.

We visited this small restaurant where the locals are being trained for jobs in the tourist/restaurant industry. We had a delicious meal served by very nice staff and thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on their small patio.
