I won't recomment this restaurant to any one. Charges are considerably high when comparing with the quality of foods and services.

Great place with really nice service! Fast delivery on the food and drinks. Not expensive. They also know good English if you have any allergies. The manager is also very funny to talk to, he knows everything and has an excellent English.

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
