Tasty variety of Thai/English/Mexican/Seafood, right on the beach, get there for about 7pm on a Monday and enjoy the Fire Show while you eat. Reasonably priced.

Went for the fire show, but would go again for the food. Best fried rice, I've ever eaten, and great basil chicken, there was eight in our group, the pizza was thin crust and good, the BBQ chicken was moist and above average, but the Thai food was exceptional.

Catering to a younger backpacker type crowd, beach bar and restaurant. Cocktails cheap and hit and miss...margarita's awful,dirty mojitos to die for. Ibiza style music vibe. Good for people watching and watching the world go by. Didn't eat as didn't appeal to me as very low budget and cleanliness questionable. Fun for a drink
