Good food at great prices- million dollar view thrown in for free

Try the fried chicken wings tempura prawn and fried chicken pieces. Also liked the crispy fried pork. A bit... read more

Love this bar, great chilled out vibe, fantastic cocktails, great for relaxing as the sun sets, got a really cool setting as it's almost carved out of the rocks on the beach! Oh, and great music too

Great position, cocktails were yum but took a log time to get them and the staff don't seem to be happy to be there at all. Asked for the food menu and even that seemed to be a hassle. Wouldn't go back.
