“Amazing balcony resteraunt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The food and service are not spectacular, but the locating and balcony view over the sea is breathtaking as you watch the waves crash onto the rocky bay below. I strongly recommend the potted cashew nuts as a snack.

“relax on their balcony”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I used to stop off here at this little Hotel just for a drink. Their balcony looks out over the Indian Ocean and I would watch the most wonderful sunsets and listen to the waves crashing over the rocks beneath.

“Really only used the book store.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

But we did have coffee and breakfast a few times and it was fine. Nice to sit upstairs and look out over the beach without being pestered by the hawkers.
