Not only is this perhaps the most overpriced restaurant on the island, but the food that you pay extortionate prices for is all deep fried, and for a restaurant so close I the sea, they're surprisingly incapable of procuring fresh seafood. But worst of all was the service. When myself and my boyfriend sat down, we were given 2 minutes to look at the menu, before the inexplicably angry waitress demanded we order. We asked for a few more minutes, she gave us one, then reappeared saying we needed to order right now for some reason. As it was still early we decided to just order smoothies and perhaps food later. Wen we told her this she was clearly very annoyed, and said 'that's all you're having?!', before snatching the menus ad storming off. In the 20minutes it took to bring the smoothies (although the staff were just standing around) we heard the waitresses complaining about 'people like us', apparently time wasters, while throwing us dirty looks. Needless to say, we won't be returning. Worst dining experience we've had in 4 months of travelling.
