Wonderful little place. Don't expect much for views; but this small little local cafe is wonderful. You will meet Maria and her whole family. You cook the food on a hot stone, simple, wonderful, down to earth.

Remotely located in the jungle and decorated as a pirate ship, the atmosphere of this restaurant is very special. The specialty of this restaurant is that you cook your own meal on hot stones.

Brilliant... Everything was great... the friendly service.. made you feel at home immediately... The variety of fresh fish, sea food and meats... the concept of stone cooking... and to finish it off your receipt on a personalised post card! Oh and don't forget the artists studio/museum next door... Pirates treasure AHOY!

This restaurant looks so promising especially if you are visiting with children. It is so dreadfully let down by the staff though. We had the stone cooked fish which was ok, but when we asked for instructions as to the best way to cook the fish we were answered with 'wait' and a glare. The Pirate theme is really just... More

Maria's rock cafe really provides you with a unique dining experience. The food is super nice as you cook it yourself - however the portions are tiny for the prices you pay.
