I had tuna and my husband had prawn pasta. Both dishes were perfected cooked with generous portions of seafood. We enjoyed the photos and great chat with the owner who generously gave us his time even though we could see he was busy.

This restaurant is within walking distance from Outrigger Hotel. I had samoa style soup and it was very tasty and fresh. The restaurant was very clean too. They took credit card as a payment method.
