Had some cocktails and good food. Good prices and their caipirinhas are well made. The food on the Thai dishes is excellent - they offer to moderate the spiciness to your preferences for each dish. Attentive service and a lovely location right on the beach....More

We had dinner with our daughter 16 years old. The spot is incredible, the service is ok and the food is average. Would I go again? If, only because of that fantastic and relaxing atmosphere.

Great beach front location, although out of the way. Baked mussels were sublime and we will definitely be going back to try the baked shrimp. Beautifully presented in simple style that allowed the flavour to shine through. The Thai lemon shrimp salad also did not...More
