Staff were extremely attentive and friendly, food was sensational. I loved the sand floor restaurant and how close we were to the ocean, literally on the beach. The sunsets were spectacular. Cocktails a must. Highly recommend OTB!

Yes we specialise in Gluten Free and most of our dishes are already Gluten Free, but its always best to mention it in your reservation and we will make certain all preparation methods are done in a flour free environment..
