“Stumbled upon and WOW !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Outstanding restaurant which we found by accident and literally as we were heading back to the port to leave the island! Quite exception quality and at reasonable prices also. We both ate the Lamb & Asparagus kebabs which were amazing.
If you could get one of the limited outside tables even better!

“Punches above it's weight.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Other reviews have commented on the view but sitting outside the view is mainly of a busy roundabout and some parked cars. When we first arrived, the service was a little slow.

BUT, the sushi was delicious, the coffee great and we ended up staying for ages and then wanting to come back for more. So what was so special? I suppose it was the amosphere and the interesting food. It is very laid back and relaxed which makes you want to stay and the food that we ate was of high quality and not what you would expect from this location.
Despite it's flaws, if I lived locally I could see myself coming back time and time again and judging by the clientele I think others had the same idea.

“Nice view and nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The view from the restaurant is lovely. We came for a drink on Liberation Day and even though the restaurant was busy, the staff were friendly and made time to explain all of the specials to us. Little bit pricey but nice view, staff and food overall.

“Good Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Was passing one night about 10.0pm and called in to ask if they were serving coffee.these were obtained and had a very nice conversation with the Manager.Went back a couple of nights later and had a small Japanese dish with a beer. All very nice for a very cheap price.
