An unusual place - order by number with help from the servers. Pick the food up at the counter when it's ready. But having said this, this is not an every day restaurant. The food is of high quality and they have just taken a different service model. There was a special of the local fish and chips that was... More

If you are looking for a local place, then Pam Pam is for you.. first of all it doesn't have "typical wait staff" they bring you water and give you a menu selection along with a pencil and you decide how to "build" your meal. After placing your order you are provided with a beeper that buzzes and lights up... More

After reading the reviews we decided to go and see for ourselves and here's our report; First of all, please do not rate restaurants on tripadvisor if you think rating places like Olive Garden and Starbucks are worthy of rating... Second, THINGS DO NOT ALWAYS ADD UP TO PERFECTION! The staff in this restaurant was very attentive and kind and... More

WE visited this restaurant and although it looks quite nice, when the sun sets there are absolutely no lights -- you cannot read the menu and you cannot see if there is anything in the food. and being an outside place there definately can be bugs out. It is a complete self serve place where you write down on a... More

I stayed at the Perle D'Or. This restaurant is right in the hotel so we ate here. The prices were very reasonable and the drinks were strong. It was great to have the option to dine here. Ordering the food at the counter was a bit strange, I didn't know whether to bus my own table and how to even... More

This is a bar-restaurant inside a giant polyinesian hut that is inside an apartment complex for Medical students: although you might never know it. The pool and grounds with all the plants are great. THe owner and staff are mainly Dutch as are the students--most of them. The service is good, it is read the menu, get an order form,... More

The first problem was the place was so dark that you couldn't read the menu so who knows what was in the food you were eating. But not to worry I didn't eat mine. I asked for a vodka and lemonade and I got a warm glass of sprite, no ice no vodka. I advised the waitress of this and... More
