The colours of this on-the-road restaurant, the atmosphere is very nice, however, there are limited kinds of seafood which was disappointing and it is expensive compared to others but the portion is good.

My wife and I returned to The Vanilla lounge again last month and as always it was a culinary delight. The new menu from Wayne, the highly innovative, hugely talented chef, was just wonderful. A great mix of fantastic steaks, lamb done three ways, wonderful livers as a starter. Just take a look at the menu on the website and... More

This restaurant allowed us to relax in great comfort & with impeccable service. It had a great atmosphere enhanced by our conversation with the owner Emel, who explained that her husband Wayne was the chef & they owned the restaurant. It was all very charming & the food was the best on our trip of 3 weeks, including a complimentary... More

We weren't super hungry so popped in for a small bite. We shared a starter of rice and mussels and a dinner of pork belly with cauliflower, pearl onions, and beets. The flavors were very nice. There were a lot of little children in at the time and the staff were fine with the banging. I noticed they even made... More
