“Good food, nice service, beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We went on a moonlight cinema evening, but the movie was lame so we left partway through. It had started about 25 minutes late. Bring your bug spray. We had a yummy pizza and an iced chocolate (they got this order wrong and gave us coffee instead but were happy to correct the mistake).

“fantastic little cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

this cafe has some of the best views in vila. situated right on the water, the open-air cafe is always busy and has a lovely vibe, friendly staff, and definitely try their fruit punch - its great! the wifi is a nice bonus too, as it can be hard to come by in vila. we came back here a number of times during our stay.

“Great little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Visited here several times last week during our stay in Vila. Good spot on the waterfront , always seems busy and service is fast and efficient. We visited for drinks and also a meal one night. Big menu to choose from and all the meals were delicious. Can recommend the butter chicken and the chicken pizza. The Bush lime juice is yummy too.
