Stopped there waiting to get to Ylan Ylang and it was happy hour so we had a couple of Margs. If the Margs are any indicatin of the food this must be an awesome spot. :-)

My fianće and I tried the Sano Banano on a day trip from our resort, I had the tuna steak sandwich and it was amazing. Extremely fresh and light. I ordered the tuna medium and it was perfect. She had the black bean soup and a sushi roll, both she said were great. The soup had half of an avocado... More

The food was really good. Excellent fresh fish. They showed a first-run movie every night included in the price.

we had a meal here whilst waiting for our transfer to the main resort. We sat outside at the rear away from the noisy street front. the service was better here than at the resort, the food was just o.k. nothing special at all. the toilets were dirty and tables sticky. just an average place with nothing to get excited...

Ate here for lunch - delicious quesadillas for me and amazing burrito for my partner. The cocktails were refreshing and service was great. Saw a capuchin with her baby in the garden! Will definitely return.
