beautiful place, on expensive side, good food, not crowded, reservations not needed assistant wait staff was excellent but wasn't allowed to take tips, so don't bother, they give it to wait staff, which you hardly saw and couldn't be bothered with customers

No, no specific dress code. I was wearing nice "dress" shorts and a nice polo. No jacket or long pants required.

It is quite far, and in some parts of the road there is no sidewalk. I recommend you take a taxi. It will probably cost you up to US$10. After your meal the restaurant will call a taxi to take you back! Enjoy!
