The food is okay but the cocktails are brilliant. One of us had a pizza, the other had fish in batter with chips and salad. The food could easily have come straight from the freezer.

Ordered battered prawns and battered fish which were nice but cooked so much the batter was dark brown and rather dry. The chips and salad that come with the meal were good (the menu doesn't tell you this so don't order chips)

I was there at Poya recently and they served beer as do the other restaurants on that stretch of beer. Be discreet about it and you'll be fine
