Visited Tra ban restaurant on Saturday night, the place was very busy and had a lovely atmosphere, we were greeted immediately and shown to our table with a smile, this restaurant is big on local fresh produce and fish specials, upon ordering we received a complementary soup and bread with pesto which was Devine, overall the food was beautifully presented...
