Amazing location, this could be a gold-mine if the service improved and staff were more friendly instead of being so disorganised they could not look up to say hello at the bar. Food very poor, menu pretentious and portions small. OK for a glass of wine to watch the sunset. Lunches drag-on for hours due to the poor kitchen service.... More

The lobster we ordered was really delicious as was the prawns in a coconut curry base! The manageress was most attentive and had a birthday song lined up for my hubby!! And a special cake was made for breakfast. Thank you to my daughter in law Tasnim and Cafe des Arts for making this an especial birthday for my husband!!

Nice cocktail on the beach and then dinner on the beautiful restaurant. The welcoming was great. My fish was good but not excellent. The really expensive (almost 20 euros) chocolate dessert was disappointing.The cake was almost burnt, the mouss was fat and the ice cream was ok.

Delicious food and pleasant service. We were surprised to have found a modern location with a rather European service on the islands
