The food here was good but when they brought us a bottle of water which cost 500 Vatu it kind of put a damper in our mood. Quantity wise the food is considerably less than what the other restaurants or cafe's offered.

I've been here a few times. Last year it was ok. This time I was disappointed. I had a children's calamari as I have a small appetite. The calamari was overcooked and the chips were undercooked. The bar staff appeared uninterested.

This place was recommended by hotel receptionist and then another local. The restaurant has a good waterfront view, live music and one of best local fish dishes. Compared to other restaurants, the price is higher, but it was worth the extra money.

Situated right on the water. Biggest t-bones you ever saw. The seafood is as fresh as can be. Excellent service.

We had a buck's night dinner in this restaurant and it was fantastic. The food was good, but the service is what made it special. They even let us push the groom to be up on stage to sing 'Superstition' with the fantastic live band...More
