We stayed at The Chedi Sakala hotel, and the staff there suggested us to have a dinner at their Sakala Restaurant, so we booked and it was amazing, the friendly staff set up a dining for us at their roof, as they knew we came for honeymoon. Food was delicious. Although it was costly but it's worth it.
