The service is very limited and the prices are soooo expensive. I was staying at Saman Villa and their restaurant prices are less knowing that Saman is the luxurious place overthere. I regret visiting it. The food is clean though.

Seafood restaurant, most outdoor seating. One picks onechoiceof fish, then they price and cook. Served with aromatic rice, garlic/coconut bread, side salad. Pricey enough. Overall, a bit like arabic type restaurants. Very good mood music.

This place has a good selection of fresh seafood, with daily catch and crabs and lobster. But it's noisy when the old passenger and freight trains run by, but in some ways this adds to the charm of the place. Excellent food, decent prices, and loads of selection. The local trio places very good songs to, right at the table.

I was a little disappointed. Service was slow, food was ok. Lots of flies. Liked the concept of choosing your fish from the counter. Reasonably priced.
