We were taken here for lunch by our guide. We had the fried captain fish with rice and vegetables. Good food at a good price. The staff are very friendly too and I enjoyed the dancing waitresses.

We had 2 meals (lunch and dinner) here at the sidewalk outdoor seating. The food and drinks were delicious and affordable. Very pleasant, even on very hot days. Wifi was hit or miss.
