The location right on the beach by South Cliff was the perfect location to sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a sundowner and some pretty decent food. It was very hard to move on due to Saja's welcoming nature

We chilled here with few beers and trying out most of their sea food offerings. The crab soup was our favorite. It gives a good variety of cuisines.

We came for a coffee and returned many times for dinner. Very tasty food every time and always something entertaining to see on the beach. Our waiter was very helpful and happy to reserve our favourite table every night.
